The app was created mostly to help the older citizens who statistically take more medication and supplements, at least 8 different medications in average, which are a lot of to remember.
Healthy Reminder works in a simple way. If you forget to take your medication or supplements, the emergency contacts that you set up through the app will get an email or a text message. Usually the contacts are the care takers and family members. The app will simple enable the user to put in the contact info in under one minute. Then the app will do the magic and the user will never skip taking the needed medication or supplements.
