Med-Con Technologies is the management and marketing organization for MedSked products. Headquartered in Annandale, New Jersey, it is responsible for the continued development of the product line (including, most recently, the MedCon Mobile Smart Label application). Med-Con Technologies forms partnerships with best-in-class partners and works closely with Consumer to Pharmaceutical, retail pharmacy, and healthcare providers, customizing MedSked to meet the medication adherence requirements for their patients and customers.
Over 15 years ago, Patricia Londino-Buck was rushed to the emergency room of a New York hospital because she mistakenly took twice the prescribed dose of her medication. To avoid making such a drastic mistake again, Patricia developed the MedSked concept: an intuitive, easy-to-use tool that does not depend on electricity or computer programs to work. After numerous trials, the MedSked product was patented and marketed.
Patricia’s brother, a business development professional, soon formed Med-Con Technologies. His vision: to work directly with the healthcare industry, customizing the design and production of MedSked for its specific needs. In this way, MedSked would have the greatest impact, fulfilling a key role as part of today’s “patient-centered” healthcare culture.
Today the MedSked solution has become a leading adherence tool for clinical trials and pharmacies, supporting hundreds of thousands of patients both nationally and internationally. There are multiple MedSked products to help facilitate adherence for every type of drug packaging and medication regimen. And MedCon Mobile Smart Label introduces the option of remote monitoring/time stamp notification through the convenience of smartphone technology.
MedSked: partnering with the consumer, pharmaceutical, retail pharmacy, and healthcare industries to deliver the full drug therapeutic value to their patients.
The story behind MedSked was reported at the time on this local news broadcast. As you’ll see, our company has grown and changed, but the core value of MedSked remains the same, more important today than ever: taking medication made easy.
