The Patient Education Suite
Teach patients how to follow a safe and effective medication regimen. Counseling patients and their caregivers about medications are among the essential responsibilities of today’s clinicians. Patients who understand what to expect from their drug therapy are more likely to comply fully – leading to fewer adverse drug events, reduced readmissions, better health outcomes, and overall cost savings. The Gold Standard Drug Database’s Patient Education Suite supplies medication and disease/condition patient education information as required in most states for prescription dispensing. Use the consumer-friendly content as a handy teaching aid for clinicians at the point of care, and as a reassuring reference for patients and caregivers when they get home.
