Astir IT Solutions, Inc. Technology Partner of the Prescription Notification Group Announces the Launch of Take Meds Now™ - an Automated Prescription Medication Alert and Tracking System.

06/06/2017 – South Plainfield, NJ – Astir IT Solutions, Inc. (, technology partner for the Prescription Notification Group, is proud to announce the launch of Take Meds Now, a unique and powerful prescription medication alert and patient adherence measurement application.

Take Meds Now, a product of the Prescription Notification Group, was built in partnership with Astir IT Solutions, Inc. “We are very proud to be leading the development and product realization of this new application,” said Bob Markowitz, Executive Vice President of Astir IT, “Take Meds Now has some very unique features that will help people take greater control of their personal health.”

Take Meds Now is the first medication alert system that allows patients to strengthen their support networks by allowing them to link their accounts to both family and friends, as well as their doctors. Users receive detailed prescription medication alerts that include dose information and medication images. As each alert is verified, the Take Meds Now system compiles a comprehensive patient adherence history that can be viewed by the patient, their support network, and their doctors.

Take Meds Now is based on a concept that was the recipient of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine PiNcH Award due to the innovative features and its impact on empowering the patient with a support system not found in any other medication alert system.

“We are very excited to offer this potentially lifesaving service” said the Prescription Notification Group CEO James F. Kaus. “Improper usage of prescription medications sends over 600,000 people to the ER and costs over 125,000 lives each year. It is our hope that Take Meds Now can stop these injuries and deaths.”

This is the first healthcare application that offers physicians a quantifiable way to measure patient adherence to prescription medications. Take Meds Now is built using a proprietary closed-loop system that allows doctors to view, measure, and analyze patient adherence data. This unique feature is the first available tool that can help physicians understand why patients fail to properly take their prescription medications, and potentially improve patient adherence.
