The need to understand drug safety information in todays global marketplace with the scope of new health and wellness products, combined with more established pharmaceutical and over the counter medication, is desperately needed.
The accessibility to medical data to date for the consumer or patient has not been readily available prior to big data, or app technology. It was essentially a walled garden owned by the medical world. Oceans mHealth has enabled a patient and consumer app that is simplified with clear explanations that are easy to understand.
Adverse drug admissions are on the rise globally, partly due to consumers and patients lack of drug safety knowledge and consumers self medicating. In the US 57% of adverse drug reactions were not recognised by the attending physician at the time of admission. Additionally, in the US, 28% of all emergency room visits were drug reaction related, and 70% of these were deemed preventable. Older adults are more likely than younger adults to have adverse drug reactions. The issues of body size, altered body composition, and decreased liver and kidney functions cause many drugs to accumulate in older people bodies at dangerously high levels, thus attention to drug safety needs to be more focused and awareness raised
Oceans mHealth’s solution has an advanced but patient friendly manner for displaying information pertinent to drug interactions. The app provides you with a red, amber, green status as to the severity of the interaction and the products that are interacting.
The drug interaction detail can be then discussed with the relevant health professional involved with your decision support.
Some drug interactions may not be very serious, others can cause death, hospitalization, or serious injury. Consumers need to educate themselves as to the dangers of interactions between prescribed and over the counter medications, as well as any nutrients and supplements consumers take as they try to lead a healthy balanced lifestyle. Adverse drug reactions statistically occur more in patients over 50.
