Med-Con Technologies LLC is the management and marketing organization for the recently launched MedCon Mobile Smart Label and MedSked Tab System. Headquartered in Annandale, New Jersey, it is responsible for the continued development and enhancement of the product line. Med-Con Technologies works closely with pharmaceutical and consumer products companies to reduce the costs of completing clinical studies, to access real-time patient medication adherence data, and to speed their IND to market.
Over 15 years ago, my older sister was rushed to the emergency room of a local hospital because she mistakenly over dosed on her prescribed medication. To avoid making such a painful mistake again, she developed the MedSked Tab System: a visual medication schedule with a row of weekly DAY/Dose columns with removable TAKE DOSE reminder tabs - the concept being very similar to the way a Post-it-Note works. After multiple proof of concept tests, MedSked was patented and marketed.
Patricia’s brother, a sales and marketing executive, soon formed Med-Con Technologies. His vision: to work closely with pharmaceutical and consumer products companies, providing solutions to improve product use, improve health outcomes, and meet the needs of the most demanding clinical study adherence support requirements. Over its eight year existence, Med-Con Technologies has evolved with the cloud computing needs of its customers. In addition to MedSked it has developed a cloud based SaaS solution that provides real time remote patient monitoring and tracking of medication and product usage adherence activity, patient reported outcomes, and adverse effects.
The story behind MedSked was reported at the time on this local news broadcast. As you’ll see, our company has grown and changed, but the core value of MedSked remains the same, more important today than ever: taking medication made easy.
