Medica is a multimedia prescription manager and medication reminder. With Medica, users can store and manage as many prescriptions as they wish, each with multiple medications. The application also reminds patients to attend treatment sessions and follow-ups.

Caregivers find Medica very easy to use in the care for patients. Users can record audio messages from doctors and attach the audio to the prescription, so as to recall the doctor’s face-to-face instructions. An unlimited number of medications can be added to any prescription and flexible medication reminders can be set for different times on different days.

Moreover, users can even capture a photo of the medication, so as to take exactly the right medication at the right time. Medication reminders are customizable in terms of tones, repetitions, vibrations and flashes. Medica is a Java mobile application working on most feature phones and Smartphones.
