The Prescription for Taking Medicine on Time

Last Updated June 16, 2020

Our mission is to provide affordable products and services for improving the quality of life and healthcare outcomes of patients with a variety of medical needs.

OnTimeRx reminder mobile apps and services were created more than 10 years ago by Susan Torrico, a licensed pharmacist who had 35 years of experience. Today, OnTimeRx is owned and operated by Arteric.

Arteric is a digital pharmaceutical and biotechnology advertising agency based in Summit, NJ.

Medication can work only if patients actually take it. Ideally, the patient would follow the dosing instructions exactly: always taking the right dose of the right medication at the right time. Unfortunately, many patients and caregivers find it hard to adhere to these instructions. Medication nonadherence is a well-documented and very complex healthcare problem that leads to billions of dollars of additional healthcare costs every year in the United States.

In developing our technologies, we at Arteric set out to create a patient-focused compliance system that would be simple enough to be used by everyone. In 1997, we developed a proprietary handheld timer device with software for setting reminder alarms. This system was field-tested by a local transplant center. It improved compliance from 50% to 85%, which encouraged us to proceed.

About this same time, Palm Inc. introduced the popular PalmPilot handheld devices. We saw the benefits of utilizing this technology and had our software rebuilt for the Palm OS® platform. The resulting software is an award-winning medication reminder application that satisfies very specific patient needs and runs on hardware that is used all over the world. OnTimeRx® is recognized as the premier application for managing medications. It is a featured personal healthcare software program on all major Palm OS® vendor sites.

We are very excited about our current generation of technology, OnTimeRx® Automated Reminders, which is a Web-based reminder scheduling and notification service for phones, pagers, and email. OnTimeRx® is now able to meet the reminder needs of millions of people by using text messages, emails, and text-to-speech technology.

If you would like reminders or a patient adherence program for your clinical trial, patients, or a family member, please contact us.

What do our happy customers say about OnTimeRx®?

Craig McDonald, NJ USA
Again, I must say thank you for all of your help. Your application is a great tool for maintaining a good life. My story is this: I went to the emergency room awhile back for a persistent cough. As standard procedure, they took my blood pressure. At that time, my pressure was 225/185. I thought the machine was broken so I asked for another reader. Same thing happened on this machine. It read 225/185. Nurse said I should have been having a stroke or dead. I felt fine other than the cough. I spent 4 days in the hospital going through techniques and medicine to get my blood pressure down and maintainable.

This is where your application comes into help. I set up reoccurring tasks in Outlook to remind me to take pills and have them sync with my Palm as a constant reminder. Great idea in concept, except the reoccurring tasks kept failing for me with the third party task manager I had. I wouldn't get the reminder to take my pill. One of the pills I have to take can cause a stroke if I miss taking it. So by having your application as a working reminder helps me maintain my good life.

Thanks for your help, sincerely!
