any kind of prescription, over-the-counter medication, nutritional supplement, or other recommended activities.

The platform uses a secure, two-way messaging system that sends a reminder message to a mobile phone, and prompts a response that is recorded in the user’s adherence report. Users can view the report online to see how well they’re sticking with their schedule, and they share the information with their healthcare provider or caretaker.

Tripi also points to two particular features:

—Care4Family enables family members to link with the patient account, so they can help monitor medication adherence. Relatives get a notification if their loved ones fail to take their medications on time.

—Care4Charity offers users an incentive by selecting a charity that will get a 5-cent donation from Janssen (through May 14, 2014) for each day they indicate they have taken all of their meds on time. The initial charities include AIDS United, American Diabetes Association, and Save the Children.

The Care4Today app can be downloaded directly from the App Store, Google Play, or the care4today website.
