Easy Health Reminders for You

Forget Post-it notes—cell phones
are the newest way to remember
your doctor's appointments
and health
goals. Check out how
three companies are using text
messages to help you stay well.

  • INTELECARE (intelecare.com) For
    $5 a month, you'll receive unlimited text
    message, e-mail, or voice mail reminders
    for prescriptions and appointments.


  • QUITEXT (quitext.com) Trying to
    kick butts? For $20, QuiText will send
    supportive tips and advice your way
    every day for six weeks. A recent study
    from New Zealand's University of
    Auckland found that smokers who
    used a similar program were twice as
    likely to quit as those who didn't.


  • SENSEI (sensei.com) After logging
    your weight-loss goals and personal
    details, such as food and exercise habits,
    you'll receive daily meal recommendations
    and weekly grocery shopping
    lists
    —as well as restaurant menu options
    and motivational notes—for $6 a week.
