PictureRx was inspired by the many patients who have difficulty taking their medicines correctly, and by their friends and family members who try to help them. PictureRx grew out of research which proves that using pictures helps both children and adults remember what medicines to take, what they are for, and how to take them. PictureRx is one of the few medication aids that has been tested in clinical research studies. Four out of 5 patients said PictureRx helped them keep up with their medicines.
PictureRx is simple on the surface. Behind the scenes is our innovative, patent-pending technology. PictureRx has received attention from the Wall Street Journal and was ranked among the top 50 finalists in the American Express Members Project, in a field of over 8,000 entries.
The PictureRx team brings a unique combination of medical, business and technical expertise to deliver innovative web-based health literacy tools. Medical doctors, engineers, and veteran business people work together to make PictureRx a safe, accurate and simple way to manage your medicines.
