The CBC's David Common looks at a Canadian mobile health app that does more than just remind people to take their pills.

MyMedRec tracks users’ medications, issues reminders and allows patients and caregivers to keep a complete list of medications which they can send to their health care professional.

It started as an iPhone app, but versions for Blackberry and Android phones launched this month.

MyMedRec was developed for Canada's brand-name drug manufacturers.
