PHOENIX, May 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With a vision of helping millions of people live simple, happy healthy lives, HOURBANDS CORP announces the upcoming product release that will quickly and easily help people take their pharmaceutical medication on time.
"Did you know, of the hundreds of millions Americans taking prescription drugs every year, up to 87% do not take them on time?" explains Porter O'Doherty, founder and CEO of HOURBANDS. "Even worse - every year in the US an astonishing 7 million people are hospitalized and 125,000 people die for mismanaging their medication? According to the CDC, non-adherence to drug therapy causes 30% to 50% of all treatment failures. These unnecessary hospitalizations add $47 Billion to our health care industry every year."
One way or another, medication non-adherence affects everyone. The NEHI has estimated the added cost to the US Health Care Industry is near $290 Billion annually.
HOURBANDS is a simple, revolutionary product that will quickly and easily help anyone take their medicine on time. The patent pending product is small band designed to slide onto any prescription bottle. The user then moves the slide-able buckle to indicate when to take their next medicine. There's no more wondering, guessing, writing or forgetting.
The simplicity of HOURBANDS makes this a perfect solution for anyone—young and old—who wants to take their medicine on-time every-time.
"We specifically designed this product to be easy and intuitive," said O'Doherty. "There are many high-tech solutions available that satisfy a certain market, but we decided to focus on a simpler solution that can be easily learned and used by the masses. Technical solutions such as Apps can be helpful for some, but they tend to be appropriate for younger computer-savvy people rather that the older less tech-savvy. With AARP estimating 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 years old every day, that's a huge market in need of a simple solution. Hourbands was purposefully designed to be simple, intuitive and inexpensive. Our vision is to help millions of people take their medicine on time so they can live simple, happy healthy lives.
