Medication Reminders For The Elderly
Automatic Medication Reminders For Seniors
Since 1978, Database Systems Corp. (DSC) has been providing community calling services and programs.
DSC has developed the premier senior calling service called CARE, short for Call Reassurance.
Using our CARE calling service, community groups or even individual citizens can automatically call individuals and loved ones, reminding them to take their prescribed medications at a specific time and date.
If you have a loved one or parent who has just started a new medication routine and needs to take pills every day, CARE can be used to send automatic phone reminders. Remembering to take medication daily can be a chore for many seniors, but it is very important for their health. If these loved ones are forgetful or simply have too many medications to track, then perhaps our medication reminder service can be of assistance.
DSC provides an individual medical reminder service that automatically calls a subscriber playing a recorded message reminding the individual to take their medications.
CARE systems have been installed throughout the country. CARE systems are also used at our paid service data center where DSC allows online subscribers to signup for these services on an individual basis.
Why Prescription Medication Reminders?
Studies show that 125,000 deaths and up to 25 percent of the hospital and nursing home admissions annually can be traced to patients straying from their medication schedule. This service can assist seniors, caregivers and people just too busy to remember to take their own medications.
Automatic Medication Reminder Service For Seniors
DSC can deliver prescription medication reminders to any individual who has access to a landline telephone or cell phone.
A pre-recorded message is delivered to either to an answering machine or to the subscriber to this service with a reminder to take a medication.
Simple to complex scripts can be developed for touchphone response using our IVR technology. For example, calls can be directed to medical personnel such as a doctor's office if the notice requires more than a simple "take your pill" reminder.

How Does Our Medication Reminder Service Work?
The CARE prescription medication reminder service calls subscribers (on the days and times they specify) and greets them with a
recorded message. Subscribers are instructed to "Press 1" to acknowledge the calls.
If after several attempts the subscriber does not answer the phone or acknowledge the call, the CARE program will automatically call the designated contact(s), playing an
alert message, and send email alerts as well. Two contacts can be designated and CARE will alternately call each one until the call is acknowledged (for up to 1 hour).
CARE provides a complete log of activity including the status of each call as well as schedule changes.
