Medisafe Pill & Med Reminder - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Of course, started when I was 9!

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Prioritize all the million innovative things that we want to add to the platform.

Rotem Shor is the Chief Technology Officer of Medisafe, the leading digital companion platform that provides personalized treatment support to more than 7MM users. He leads all research and development for the organization, helping to implement advanced technologies to drive innovation in the digital health industry. He is an expert in digital medicine applications and works closely with major pharma companies in developing and guiding direct connection to patients via innovative platforms to support improved health and treatment, with the customization and guided treatment. He previously served as a lead software engineer for Check Point Software Technologies, helping to design and implement enterprise web applications for emerging health platforms. He earned his BA in information systems and economics from the University of Haifa, Israel.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Waze – because it helps me to get from one place to another, and on time! Also I really like Audible – the access to so many amazing books that can enrich my knowledge. I also use LinkedIn (I like how the platform is evolving!) and Udemy quite a lot.

How long have you been working on this app?

We launched Medisafe in 2012 and have been enhancing its technology, functions, and features ever since. We most recently introduced advanced connectivity that enables greater connection between a patient and their physician and care teams, as well as symptom trackers, giving the platform even more capabilities in helping patients manage their health.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

We developed Medisafe after our father accidentally took an overdose of insulin. We always operate from the patient perspective for those who rely on medications to live their lives and want to make the task of medication management one less worry.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Medisafe starts where the doctor visit ends, helping to guide patients through medication challenges from prior authorization to shipping to the first dose to ongoing medication therapy. Our platform provides continuous support and personalized engagement to patients throughout every step of their medication journey using behavioral science, able to connect friends, caregivers, and providers for support in non-adherence, and delivering timely interventions to help ensure patients are never alone or face questions about their medications.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We are currently exploring opportunities to be able to support patients end to end, from the point the doctor prescribes throughout the full journey, communicating status and data between all stakeholders across the healthcare continuum.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

The Medisafe app is always free for users, so we encourage readers to download it for either Apple or Android devices and to experience the amazing support that my team is building.
