Do you have a prescription to treat a chronic condition?

If so, you’re not alone. In fact, nearly 60 percent of Americans take at least one prescription medication daily.

And, be honest, do you have trouble taking your meds on schedule?

If so, you’re also not alone—and there’s no shame in admitting it. Roughly half of patients with chronic conditions don’t follow their drug treatment plan as prescribed.

Sticking to your treatment program can be difficult. The high cost of drugs, hard-to-understand dosing instructions and timetables, fear about side effects and simple forgetfulness can all present hurdles to taking your meds as prescribed. Missing a dose (or two or three) happens to the best of us.

The good news is that Sharecare is here to help.

We understand that following your prescriptions is crucial in helping you manage your conditions. We also understand that patients confront challenges when it comes to taking medications. That’s why we’ve developed a suite of easy-to-use tools to help you stay on track.

You already use Sharecare (available for iOS and Android) to track your steps and stress, measure your RealAge and follow health topics you’re interested in. Now, you can do even more.

Sharecare has new medication features that can help you:

And coming soon, you’ll be able to learn how to take your medications properly, spot potential side effects and be on the lookout for interactions between your medications and other drugs you take or foods you eat.

Managing your health is something you shouldn’t have to do alone. With help from your healthcare provider, your friends and family—and from Sharecare—you can stay on top of your prescriptions, treat your conditions effectively and live your healthiest life.
