Low health literate individuals are more likely to take their medicines incorrectly, be hospitalized, mismanage chronic conditions and visit the emergency room.
Meducation reduces medication errors and improves medication adherence by providing actionable Sig-based instructions. Meducation is not static patient education material (PEM). Meducation uses the patient’s drug and SIG information fro Integrated with your EHR or Pharmacy system, Meducation uses a patient’s medication and SIG information to create personalized medication instructions that can be delivered to patients printed, or as part of their discharge documents, without interrupting clinical workflow.
