Last Updated February 2, 2015
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.

AmeliaPlex, Inc. is a privately owned and self-funded Florida corporation, founded in 1996 by a career pharmacist, Susan Torrico, and a small group of associates. The company's sole purpose is creating, developing and marketing a variety of simple solutions for complex problems related to healthcare.
Pharmacist Susan Torrico is the owner of this site, and the designer/developer of the medication compliance tools and services offered on this site. The recommendations for using OnTimeRx® tools and services to improve compliance are authored by Susan Torrico, based on her 35-year career in pharmacy and represent the "best practices" advice of a health care professional.
Medication noncompliance is a well-documented and very complex healthcare problem that costs this country billions of dollars annually, simply because people forget to do what is required to take proper care of their own health care needs.
This company set out to create a patient-focused compliance system that would be simple enough to be used by everyone. We developed a proprietary hand held timer device and software to program reminder alarms in 1997. This system was field tested by a local transplant center and it improved compliance from 50% to 85%, which encouraged us to proceed.
About this same time, Palm, Inc. introduced the popular Palm Pilot hand held 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 on hardware that is used all over the world. OnTimeRx® is recognized as the premier application for managing medications, and is a featured personal healthcare software program on all major Palm OS® vendor sites.
We are very excited about our newest venture, 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 land line and cell phone-users, in addition to our current OnTimeRx® smart phone and PDA-users. Expanding on the original OnTimeRx® reminder concept, the OnTimeRx® automated reminder service sends scheduled medication reminders to a variety of mobile devices and home phones. This telephonic option further advances the mission of AmeliaPlex, Inc. and helps us meet our original goal of providing affordable tools to improve quality of life and healthcare outcomes.

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!
