What is a medication tracker app?

A medication tracker application is a mobile or web application that enables users to view their current and past medication history. The app also enables users to create custom reminders and adherence goals. Many medication tracker apps allow users to sync with an online account, where they can review their history from any internet-connected device.

Medication tracking apps are similar to many other health and fitness apps including health monitoring apps, nutrition apps, and blood pressure monitors. Withings is one of the most popular medication tracker applications.

How to successfully grow your medication tracker application

A medication tracker app helps patients take their medications correctly by providing a detailed schedule and reminders. To grow its user base, a medication monitoring app must make the in-app experience as simple as possible while also collecting relevant data about the user's health. Successful medication tracking apps provide an interface that is easy to use, but they also collect data on the user's health over time so that users can track how their condition improves.

Risks and challenges of building a medication tracker application

Medication tracking apps face risks related to inaccurate use of medical information and the reputational consequences associated with the exposure of sensitive health information. It is advised that medication tracking apps provide clear mechanisms for editing or deleting user data and provide users with control over their own data. Apps should also take care not to assume any specific diagnosis from user-inputted information, and they should ensure that users are aware of the privacy policies governing the use of their data.
