Medi-Prompt Simply the best application for managing your medication schedules.
When you first start using Medi-Prompt you will be presented with the Medication
view. It is here that you tell Medi-Prompt all about your medication. Tap the +
button to add a new medication and then enter its name. It is best to use the proper
name here, unless it is very long, to avoid any confusion. Tap Done and the entry
for that medication is created and you will be taken back to the Medication view.
Tap that new medication to go to the view where can edit/enter the required details.
At the bottom of the screen you see four tabs: Medication, Due list, Log & Tools
This shows a list of all your medications sorted by Name with Patient name. Tap
any of these to edit the details for that medication.
The entries are split into functional groups and each entry has its own help notes
so I will not duplicate those here.
Items with a red background are the minimum required to make it work, but you will
get more benefit from completing them all.
There are also action buttons on this view, identified by the different background
and the action displayed in upper case. For example VIEW STATS will take you to
a view where you can see a summary of your usage of that medication.
This shows a list of all your medication showing when each is next due. The most
imminent is at the top of the list. The list grouped under 6 headings
Due or overdue:
This shows those scheduled medications that are due within the next 10 minutes or
overdue. The due time is shown (coloured red if overdue).
Not due yet
This shows the schedule medications that will be due in at least 10 minutes time.
The due time is shown.
This lists the medications which are not scheduled but taken as required.
This shows medications that were set for a prescribed course and that course is now
This show medications that you have marked as suspended.
Medication record incomplete
This shows medications for which you have not completed sufficient details. Please
tap the medication and enter data for at least those items highlighted with a red
Whenever you open Medi-Prompt, if there are any medications in the Due or Overdue
section, this view will be the first displayed.
When you are about to take a medication, tap the medication on the Due list for a
summary display and action buttons as described below.
Due list details:
This view shows you the relevant details of the selected medication and the recent
history of when it was taken. It then prompts you, via two buttons, to say whether
you want to Take it... or Skip it .
This gives a record of medication taken or skipped. If you are using Stock Control,
it also records orders placed and stock replenished.
Shows various actions and settings that control the way Medi-Prompt works.
To allow Medi-Prompt to do its job of warning you about breaching the safety guidelines
for your medication, it is important to remember to use Medi-Prompt before you take
your medication, not afterwards.
When you are about to take your medication, open up Medi-Prompt and, if not already
displayed, go to the Due list view. Tap the required medication. You will see the
details of that medication (strength, dose, etc), together with any notes you entered
about that medication, and a summary of recent activity. Having checked that you
are on the right medication, tap the Take it... button. If taking a dose at this
time breaches the safety guidelines (too many in a day or too close to the previous
dose) you will be warned asked to confirm that wish to carry on. Otherwise you will
simply be asked to confirm the time that the medication is taken and tap Done .
The time that you took the medication will be logged and the time of the next dose
will then be calculated.
When you are want tell Medi-Prompt of a skipped dose, open up Medi-Prompt and, if
not already displayed, go to the Due list view. Tap the required medication. You
will see the details of that medication (strength, dose, etc), together with any
notes you entered about that medication, and a summary of recent activity. Having
checked that you are on the right medication, tap the Skip it button. The time
that you skipped the medication will be logged and the time of the next dose will
then be calculated.
CLEARING THE LOG:
The log keep a record of all your activity and can therefore get quite large over
a period of time. To purge the log, display the Tools view and tap on purge log
in the Actions section. You will then be asked to select a date before which all
log entries will be removed. Medi-Prompt will default this date to one year ago.
NB You cannot remove the log entries made in the last month. Tap the dustbin button
to start the purge.
When first installed, Stock control is disabled for the whole system. To enable
Stock control, go to Tools / Settings and tap stock control. Here you can turn Stock
control on or off for the whole system. You must then tell Medi-Prompt the stock
control parameters for each medication as follows:-
Go to the Medication view and tap the required medication. Scroll down until you
come to the Stock control section. If you have not turned on Stock control for this
medication you must do this first. Then supply the data for the next 4 entries.
From now on, Medi-Prompt will monitor your stock level and prompt you to re-order
at the appropriate time. You will also see 2 brown buttons. Use PLACE ORDER when
you order a new supply of your medication, and the REPLENISH button when you take
receipt of the medication. These actions adjust the stock figures as necessary and
place an entry on the log.
From within Medi-Prompt app, select Tools. You can then choose to read the FAQs
or contact support.
PAUSING THE ALERTS:
Of course, you can always turn down the volume and switch off the ringer when you
go in to a meeting but this will still leave Medi-Prompt vibrating and displaying
alerts you may not want to respond to until the meeting is over. So just go to Tools
/ Actions and tap the inhibit alerts until... entry. Choose the time at which the
alerts should re-commence. Medi-Prompt will restart alerts after the selected time
for all due or overdue medications.
