It is an easy-to-use program which will record data of a patient’s use of medications for diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol, thyroid, epilepsy, mental illness, and other such conditions, thus helping to prevent duplication of dispensation between health centers and hospitals.

The program sends a reminder to the patient before the dispensation date, and provides statistics for the patients.
