Frequently Asked Questions
What is Med Scanner?Med Scanner is a mobile app created by Knowolol, LLC. Med Scanner is a pharmacology app designed to make looking up multiple drugs much quicker, and simplifies drug information.
How much does Med Scanner cost? How do I get 50% off?Med Scanner is free to use! We do offer a premium subscription for $3.99/month or $39.99/year which offers the following benefits: Unlocks all drugs, unlimited # of med lists, unlimited # of meds within med lists, and ability to share med lists (print, email, etc.) You can easily get 50% off your first month of the premium subscription. For iOS users, use the code "50OFF". For Android users, the first month will automatically be 50% off.
*Is Med Scanner really 270x faster?We estimate that it takes the average student nurse at least 45 minutes to look up all the medications for his or her morning med pass. With Med Scanner, you can get all the same information in ten seconds or less by scanning (as long as all the meds are in our formulary). This means something that took 2700 seconds (45 min) now only takes 10 seconds. Yup, that's 270x faster!
What happens to the image that I scan?Great question! We use Google Vision AI, so please visit their site for the full details. In brief, every scan (image) is sent to Google where the text is pulled from the image. The image is permanently deleted shortly after the text is gathered from the image. Neither the owners of the app nor the developers ever see or have access to scanned images. Once all the text is pulled from the image, only drug names are searched and identified, and everything else is deleted.
Is this app HIPAA compliant?An educational pharmacology app isn’t a covered entity under HIPAA laws. That being said, first, you shouldn’t scan any patient information. However, even if some patient information accidentally got into the image, it wouldn’t be shared or stored anywhere. Second, any scanned medication lists should not be saved using real names or easily identifiable descriptions.
Why doesn’t the medication I scanned show up?This is one of three reasons. First, it could be that the image quality is degraded enough that the text couldn’t be identified. Second, any misspelled drugs will not be found. Third, the medication may not be in our formulary. If you search the drug and can’t find it, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know and we’d be happy to add it.
The Results are Undeniable
"This app is great for looking up medications you’re unfamiliar with or as a good refresher on a medication you haven’t used in awhile. I recommended this app to a friend in nursing school and she said it was really helpful in understanding medications in her clinical’s and helpful for tests. You can look up medications by search, or scan the bottle or box. It really works!! I was so surprised that I could just take a picture of a medication and the app found it.
