Inspiration

Drug-based allergic reactions affect 10% of the world's population and up to 20% of hospitalized patients. On top of that many patients, especially seniors, are prescribed conflicting drugs. With Sanus users can keep track of allergies and prescribed medications. Sanus automatically checks for drug and allergy conflicts as doctors prescribe medications. It also provides a standardized electronic medical record that doctors can review during appointments.

What it does

By providing an interface for patients and doctors to add allergies and medication, Sanus automatically notifies you when you are about to take conflicting drugs or drugs that you may react to.
