First, make sure you are logged in. You can Login from the homepage and on any page within the website. There is always a Login shortcut link in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
Creating a reminder is as easy as clicking the link below the color-coded icon that represents the type of reminder you wish to create. You can create reminders:
· To Take your medication
· To Refill a prescription
· To remind you of a scheduled appointment
· Or for some other action to monitor your vitals (like checking your blood sugar) or manage your lifestyle (like changing your toothbrush!)
As an example, let’s begin by clicking on the link below the blue “Take My Medication” icon.
Notice how the site turns gray and a new screen appears containing all the questions required to create a new reminder. This same process will occur, no matter what type of reminder you choose to create.
Take a quick glance at the screen – you will see category headings in the color blue. Let’s call those “sections.” Each section needs to be completed to properly create a reminder.
Begin by selecting your medication from the drop-down menu. The most commonly prescribed medications are listed in alphabetical order. If you can’t find your medication, simply type the name of your medication in the “Other” field. Note the green check mark that just appeared. After the system recognizes a valid entry, it let’s you know with this check mark that the section is complete and you are ready to continue.
Now, select the start and end dates for your reminder by clicking on the calendar icons. Taking a medication indefinitely? Simply leave the End Date field blank. You can always edit or delete the reminder later.
Now, let’s choose the frequency – or, how often you take the medication. You’ll notice that if you choose Weekly or More than Once a Week, you must then select the day or days of the week.
Next, select the time that you need to take the medication and your time zone. You can add additional times during the same day by clicking the “Add additional reminder time” link.
Lastly, select how you want to receive your reminder message. You can receive it by email, as a text message to your mobile phone, or as an automated voice call to any telephone.
Simply check the box next to the way you want to receive your reminder. You can select any or all options available to you.
If you don’t see the email or phone number you want to use listed, click “Add a new…” from the drop down menu, type your information and click “ok”. Once you have completed all steps click “Save Reminder”.
