MyMedRec mobile app syncs phones with medical records

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 offers detailed information about the drugs you use and their side effects. 

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.
