Abstract

About 7% of US adults had experienced depression. Depression is characterized by the presence of feelings of sadness, emptiness, or irritability, accompanied by bodily and cognitive changes lasting at least two weeks that significantly affect the individual’s capacity to function. For successful treatment patients must adhere to taking the medication on its scheduled times. Evidence suggests apps reminding patients to take their medication is still a novel idea. The purpose of this project is to determine the impact of Medisafe™ app on medication adherence and overall compliance when used for six weeks.
