MedFolio Announces Alliance with Humana Points of Caregiving

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 07, 2012

MedFolio, LLC announced today a partnership with Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM), a health care company based in Louisville, Kentucky. MedFolio has received praise for its innovative electronic pillbox technology which helps aid in medication adherence. By teaming with Humana and its Points of Caregiving team, MedFolio intends to make technological resources more readily available to patients and caregivers struggling with maintaining a proper dosage schedule. MedFolio President Julie Fulmer-Mason, a veteran pharmacist, has spent her career helping patients and caregivers communicate more effectively and is excited about the new platform available for the device.

The MedFolio Electronic Pillbox, a medication management device, assists those with more complex medication regimens to properly adhere to their medication schedule. MedFolio distinguishes itself from other pillbox manufacturers because it fully integrates into busy 21st century lifestyles. For caregivers who have to manage their own schedules in addition to those of their patients, the MedFolio Electronic Pillbox is the perfect management solution. Utilizing easy-to-use computer software that syncs directly to the device, the device stores all medication information internally. The result is that patient and caregiver are instantly connected with the dosing schedule through computer, e-mail and cell phone. Notifications are then sent through audio and visual reminder alerts at each dosing interval.

Humanas Points of Caregiving team helps subscribers make caregiving decisions with confidence. Humana offers Points of Caregiving as a one-stop shop for vital caregiving information and support, said Carolyn Karibo Livingston, Director of Medicare Product Strategy for Humana. The program includes helpful features like care management tools and resources, mentally stimulating games, product and service discounts and a library of expert articles on health, insurance, legal matters and more.

While some caregivers may be unfamiliar with using data entry software, MedFolio developed the software to ensure that it was as intuitive and easy-to-use as possible. Additionally, MedFolio offers comprehensive video tutorials to guide users step-by-step through the setup of the device and dosing schedules. MedFolio also recently launched the MedFolio Cares program, which offers the guidance of a licensed pharmacist in assisting caregivers and patients with the installation of the device and the management of individualized medication regimens. If questions regarding product needs do arise, the company is always available for technical support through the companys website, MedFolioPillbox.com.
