AMA Launches Personalized Medication Information App

The American Medical Association (AMA) unveiled “My Medications,” a smartphone application designed to allow patients to store and share information about their current medications, drug allergies and immunizations. The app is available through iTunes. The app provides a place for patients to store their medical information and share it with their physicians. My Medications lets patients store, carry and share medical information in one place that patients can take with them anywhere they go. It gives patients the ability to create and update a list of medications, including dosing and schedule information. Immunization records and allergy information can also be tracked. The app allows patients to email medical information to health care providers, family members or friends. It also allows patients to maintain a list of their medical team’s contact information.
