MEGA MEDS is an easy to use and free medication app that helps you to track and monitor your medicine adherence. Use it as a reminder to log the medicines, pills and prescriptions you take (or miss!) each day and to monitor your progress. With MEGA MEDS it's easy to understand how well you are adhering to your medication schedule.
And it's Fun!
Earn rewards in the MEGA MEDS game for tracking your medication schedule and logging the reasons why you miss a medicine dose. Then play against other users for a high score!
The MEGA MEDS app is currently in clinical trial with a NHS Trust in the United Kingdom as a study called "MAGE: Medicines Adherence, Gamification Experience". It has been designed to determine whether using an app that makes logging medication 'fun' can improve medicine management, adherence and ultimately positive health outcomes. Users earn rewards within the game for (1) adhering to their medicine schedule and (2) logging their medicine schedule - even if you miss taking your medication, MEGA MEDS will reward you for logging the information because it is important to know if medications are being missed and the reasons why.
MEGA MEDS is now available for the general public to participate in it's online trial. This will allow AppAttic and the researchers to compare the results of their clinical trial with a broader demographic. We invite you to join the study and use MEGA MEDS. There are no costs to participate and less than one minute every 2 weeks is required to complete short survey. Everything is anonymous and private - we do not ask for your name or email address.
