This prescription information automatically syncs with the app that functions as a normal drug tracker, including a journal, calendar, and pill reminders. 

This app is useful for: Any patient looking for help ordering and organizing prescription medications.

Good User Review: “We love using CareZone! It’s a quick way to track certain measurements, look at and print medication schedule or list for doctors, or write a few lines in the journal. We also upload documents, and use it to keep up with insurance cards, calendar events especially medical appointments, etc. There are many more features that others would find useful including pharmacy delivery. It’s easy to give other family members or caregivers secure access. You can assign events or to-do lists to a specific person. Once you have something wonderful, you start seeing even more potential. So, now I wish there were a few more things to track, and print a graph. Our loved ones’ doctor wants a daily weight, with a list brought to the doctor. You can print such a list, but the graph doesn’t print. I also wish we could track INR level for Coumadin users, and number of falls. But we love this app.” — Pat1010pat on the App Store

Limitations: Many reviews of this app point out issues with the app's ease of use. Some features are currently hard to locate and use within the app.

Alternatives: PillPack provides a similar subscription service that delivers organized prescriptions monthly, without extra tracking features on an app.

Download: free on the App Store and Google Play.
