For many seniors and individuals with complex medical conditions, keeping track of medications, each with its own dosage and schedule, can be a daunting and confusing task. By the time they remember to take their medication, it’s already several hours past the recommended time. John L. Webb, Jr., the Founder of Medication Call Reminder, has a personal connection to the importance of medication adherence. When his mother Willa needed help managing her medications, he set up an automated call reminder that said, “Good morning, Willa, it’s time to take your morning medication.” This simple reminder made a big difference in his mother’s health, and it inspired John to create a company that could help others in similar situations.
Medication Call Reminder was founded with the goal of providing reliable and personalized call reminders to help patients stay on top of their medication schedules. With a team of trained professionals, the company, being a B2C and B2B SaaS, works with patients to create customized medication schedules and reminders that fit their individual needs and preferences. This ensures that patients never miss a dose and that they are taking their medications at the right times, which can help improve their health outcomes and quality of life.
In an interview with Insights Care, John shares in depth about how Medication Call Reminder has not only become one of the most trusted companies in the medication management industry but also has been listed in Microsoft Azure Marketplace for providing personalized reminders to help patients achieve this goal.
Following are the excerpts from the interview:

“It has been a wonderful tool to remind my father to take his meds. I get notifications that he has gotten the call and he is happy that he still has his independence. Being able to record the call in my voice also helps him know it is me and not some robocall. Love this service and cannot say enough about how helpful it has been. Try it for a few months and you will love it.”

“Just bought this service last week for my mother. She has five different pills times a day and this has been fantastic as she forgot easily before. She and I both love the service. It calls her at the correct times and then texts me her response to taking her medications”.
