Over 1.3 million Americans suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis. Unfortunately, those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis have to deal with a lot, including managing their medications. On top of this, it isn’t feasible for them to have daily check ups, nor does there exist a best treatment practice to recommend.
What it does
Users of Rejoint will be welcomed with a pleasing interface to report the severity of their symptoms throughout the day. They can input information regarding their medication schedule and receive alerts for when to take them. This proves helpful for patients who are considered dependables and have a caregiver who monitors their medication usage. Collections of a patient's data are constructed into a useful PDF that can be emailed or printed out and handed to their Physician during checkups. Rejoint uses pattern detection to find correlation with symptom relief and treatment practices.
