Getting started with MedMinder

How do I know where to begin with my new MedMinder unit?

Your unit comes with a pamphlet containing a QR code that leads to a page with brochures that explains how to start and register your new device. If you do not have the QR code, please click here.

If you have any questions, the MedMinder Device Support team is always just a phone call away at 888-633-6463.

Do I need to have WiFi access at home in order to use MedMinder?

WiFi is not required to use the MedMinder as it comes with a celluar connection. However, we highly recommend connecting to WiFi if you have it available.

What do I need to have at home in order to operate MedMinder?

All you need is a flat steady dry surface to place it on and a wall outlet to plug it into (we do not recommend using extension cords).

What happens if I lose electricity?

In case of a power outage, the device has a rechargeable battery that will last approximately 6-12 hours.

How do I program MedMinder to match my medication schedule?

If you use our pharmacy services, it will be set for you during pharmacy enrollment. If you are renting the device only, the easy step-by-step setup process is done using our online portal at MMConnect.

Operating MedMinder

What do the different color status lights do?
The instructions that come with your unit include a visual chart displaying the meaning of each light or combination of lights.
Can someone with a vision or hearing disability use MedMinder?
Yes. MedMinder provides alerts that are both visual and auditory. The beeps can be easily heard and the lights flash on & off to get your attention. The system also provides automatic phone calls as reminders, in case the lights and beeps do not prompt taking the scheduled medication. You can also choose to receive just some of the reminders and disable the others. If you are visually impaired, the unit opens easily and the cups and compartments are large enough to feel and easy to remove and replace.
What if I don’t want to receive all the reminders available, just some of them?
You or your caregiver can select which reminders (beeps, flashing lights, phone calls, text messages or all) you want to receive. You can also change these selections at any time.
Can I take MedMinder with me if I go away for several days or go away on vacation?

Yes. MedMinder is completely portable. If there is no wireless or WiFi coverage in the area where you are staying, the lights, beeps, and compartment locking functionality will still operate as long as it has power. Phone calls, email and text messages will work when you are back in a wireless coverage area or connected again to WIFI.

What happens if my prescription changes before the next scheduled refill?

If you are using our pharmacy services any mid-cycle medication changes are accommodated to ensure an adequate supply until the next cycle delivery.
