A recent study claims that text reminders help people take their medicine. Researchers said that around a third of people who don’t take their prescribed medications are either not clear about the potential danger and benefits of the medication or they forget to do so.
“An important and overlooked problem in medicine is the failure to take prescribed medication. The results of this trial show that text message reminders help prevent this in a simple and effective way. More than just a reminder, the texts provided the link to identify patients who needed help,”
