Mobile App From Ace Innovation Group Changes How People Purchase OTC Medications
A new free mobile app released by the ACE Innovation Group ensures that the correct over the counter medication is chosen to best match patient’s symptoms.
Rock Hill, SC (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Until now, there is no way for the average person to know how to decide which over the counter medication is best for their symptoms. This represents a very dangerous situation for the consumer. All that has changed with the introduction of a new mobile app called OTCplus, released by ACE Innovation Group. This free mobile app is available for both iPhone and Android platforms, and is already saving lives.
OTCplus empowers users to make the correct choices. This is a very dire type of “Buyer-Beware” situation that until now was very much out of control. A consumer can go into a pharmacy, and emerge with a host of OTC-Medications that could cause permanent physical harm, or even death. Tylenol, also known as Acetaminophen, is well known for causing deadly liver damage in high doses, yet it still is available OTC for all to buy. The layman does not have enough knowledge about the proper usage of medications to know when, and when not, to use medications. This is an accident waiting to happen.
ACE Innovation Group has loaded their free mobile app with a plethora of OTC-Medications and all the accompanying data. All an OTCplus user has to do is enter their symptoms, and recommended OTC-Medications will appear. The FDA has issued warnings about giving certain OTC-Medications to children and toddlers. Elderly people are another group to which warnings have been issued, too bad that the majority of the public don’t know that these warnings exist. OTCplus has been hailed by Drug Hazard Watch Groups as a viable solution to OTC medication misuse.
OTCplus may also help reduce the problems caused by an acquaintance’s recommendations. People with no knowledge of medicine should not be giving advice to anyone on which OTC medications to take. On its face value, this idea of “layman recommendations” is outrageous. How many people have been harmed by innocent, by ignorant recommendations on medications from friends? There is no way to know, but there is no doubt about all of the reports of medical problems caused by the erroneous use of medications for mis-diagnosed symptoms.
It took a medical professional like Sandeep Grewal, M.D., who is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, to solve this problem by developing The OTCplus Mobile App. The Charlotte Business Journal gave Dr. Grewal an Innovation in Healthcare Award 2013, and also named him to the Top Forty Under Forty List. He is a Board Member of several well known hospitals and high technology companies. Dr. Grewal is also a noted inventor and author.
