Improve Medication Adherence and Errors. Meducation is a time-saving, innovative on-line tool that generates simpler, personalized medication instructions in the patient's preferred language. Patient-specific medication instructions – drug, dose, time of day -- are simplified to 5-8th grade reading level & presented in intuitive formats. Pictograms of time of day and medication techniques convey information unambiguously.

Meducation creates simple, actionable medication calendars that are based on health literacy research to improve medication adherence. Meducation integrated with your existing IT system. The medication list is truly portable and can be accessed and updated by healthcare providers across disparate networks, regardless of which IT systems they use.

All content is available in over 20 languages and can be delivered to patients, electronically or printed, without interrupting clinical workflow. All content is then accessible by patients from home via the patient portal.
