The kit consists of a large transparent 36 compartment hinged pill case, stickers for the time of day, two 8′ x 10″ erasable detailed medication charts and a pager size alarm with 31 alarm or vibrator settings per day. All the products are warranted and volume discounts are available.
Jane has two other successful internet businesses. Jane says her background from a medical family was helpful in developing and promoting the Pill Proof kit. The facts of non compliance are startling. She added that 9 out of every 10 outpatients are taking prescribed medicines improperly, contributing to prolonged or additional illness, More than 125,000 Americans die each year due to prescription medication non compliance, twice the number killed in automobile accidents,1,000,000 Americans are hospitalized each year due to medication errors, more than 1.3 million of US hospital admissions each year and 125,000 premature deaths are due to complications from people not following medications properly, and problems related to medications were the fourth leading cause of death – behind heart disease, cancer and stroke.
