Using SMS for medicine/prescription reminders in Kenya

By A/Prof. Terry HANNAN Moderator | 08 Feb, 2011

Michael, I find this application a very interesting tool. What is the
mechanism / process for entering the reminders and are they on the
patients and clinicians phones?
Do you have an evaluation of the application?

    Summary: AppointmentSMS.com is a web-based SMS reminder software system, used by medical professionals for appointment reminders, as well as medicine and prescription reminders.

    AppointmentSMS.com has now gone live in Kenya, and will hopefully be of service to pharmacies in helping AIDS patients with medicine reminders.

    We hope to expand to other African countries, and will do so upon request from the medical community.
