Introduction to Medilyzer Systems, Inc.

March 1, 2010

Welcome to the first blog entry about MediLyzer™, the revolutionary interactive prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drug information system designed to reduce medication health risks and to help consumers make more informed purchasing decisions.  Our goal with this ongoing blog is to provide some background information on why we created this life-saving interactive product, the benefits and convenience of having this resource available to you in multiple multi-lingual platforms and an ongoing prescription and OTC drug information portal that will keep you and up-to-date on how Medilyzer is addressing the growing concerns of reducing preventable harm from medications.

The idea for Medilyzer was conceived by its founder, Mizan Rahman, who when faced with confusion seeking to purchase cold medicine for his young daughter, recognized the struggle all parents must experience when trying to provide their children with safe medications. Realizing that hundreds of thousands of both adults and children are admitted to emergency facilities each year due to preventable adverse drug interactions, Medilyzer™ was created.  From the initial concept to act as a drug information resource center, additional enhancements were added to the software including:

  • The ability to enter prescription drugs and receive full comprehensive data reports that include; important information about the drug, questions to ask your healthcare provider, what happens if you miss a dose or overdose, what not to do while taking the medication, possible side effects, other drugs that affect the medication and how to get more information.
  • Functionality that assesses the safety of mixing OTC medications, what to ask a health care professional before using, when to stop using OTC medications, the internal organs affected by the medication and any implications from overdosing.

The Medilyzer platform is available through two different smart phone applications, and enables an end user to either scan the bar code of an OTC drug(s) to download data or check possible dangers of mixing multiple OTC medications (Android users), or manually enter the UPC label information (iPhone users) to receive this critical information.  In addition, Medilyzer technology is now available through a touch screen, interactive Smart Panel at your local pharmacy as we work with pharmacies on adopting this life-saving technology for their customers.

As we move forward with Medilyzer and continue to introduce this valuable resource to consumers, we will be periodically blogging about new features within the platform, important drug industry news and information and practical drug safety tips that you should be aware of.  We appreciate you sharing this blog through an RSS feed or e-mail subscription with your friends, colleagues and anyone else who can benefit from keeping informed about medication safety and the drug industry.
