Health & Care

KnowYourMeds was created with the belief that an informed patient is a healthier patient. Through KnowYourMeds' advanced, patented digital technology, our app can guide and track your medications in order to provide personalized advice about the potential interactions between your medications, your diet and lifestyle, as well as provide answers to any potential questions you may have about your medications. Additionally, KnowYourMeds keeps users informed with the latest published developments related to their illness/es and medications and maintains an up-to-date database of user-reported adverse effects/side effects to provide the most complete source of medication information available to users.

KnowYourMeds was founded by Kim Shah, who most recently served as global director of marketing at Thermo Fisher Scientific. Kim has also served in high-level positions with Sciformix, Convoq, e-tractions, Micrografx, and IBM/Lotus Development. Kim holds a B.Sc. from Imperial College London, and an MBA from MIT's Sloan School of Management.

This we believe

Healthy Habits
lead to a healthier life!

Hundreds of millions of Americans take prescription medications; yet 80% of patients do not read the warnings provided with those prescriptions. The global patient population is as bad or even worse, given varying literacy levels.

It is typically only after experiencing a side effect that most patients begin searching for information. However, there is not currently one place to find or keep up-to-date with the latest developments - such as new competitive medications, new reported adverse effects/side effects, the experiences of other users, new research, etc. For example, the FDA maintains a database of adverse effects/side effects that is available for patients, but the data and insights are not easily accessible or understandable.
