Medication Management

Medication Management

Medications are a big part of most any treatment plan. When interviewed, most people think they do not need any help with remembering to take medications. In studies, however, it turns out that about half of those taking medications fail to take them as prescribed and frequently forget doses altogether. In the senior population, non-adherence is even higher ranging from 50-75%.

 

Non-adherence is just one potential issue to be aware of when taking medication. Others include:

  • Correct dosing
  • Prescriptions filled correctly
  • Prescribed medicines with dangerous interactions
  • Knowing how to take your medications
  • Storage and expiration dates

We address each of these beginning with helping you to learn about your medications – what each pill does, its name, and what it looks like. We add prescriptions tracking and usage history to your personal health record and teach you how to keep it updated.
