There’s a new mobile phone app that can monitor your medications -- from pill reminders to warnings about drug interactions.

Durham-based Quintiles is providing the app for free for users of its MediGuard service.  Users can even gather information about medical research, according to this YouTube video.

“The MediGuard Mobile App will even tell you when new safety alerts or recalls come out.  Keep track of your medicine with personalized pill reminders. And there’s one more thing, the next time you visit your doctor’s office, take MediGuard with you.”

Quintiles Senior Vice President David Coman says with nearly one-third of all mobile device owners already using their phones to look up healthcare information, a MediGuard App became imperative.   The app can be downloaded through I-Tunes, Google Play Store and MediGuard-dot-org.
