Medication adherence is essential to positive patient outcomes
A patient plays a critical role in their own care throughout the continuum, especially when they are taking medications. Without a proper understanding of their medication therapy regimen and why it’s important, patients and caregivers may self-administer medications incorrectly or simply choose not to take them, potentially leading to adverse drug events, recurrence of disease symptoms, or even hospital readmission. Lexicomp® empowers nurses, pharmacists, and other direct caregivers to reach patients on an individualized level and deliver easy-to-understand information and tips to help improve adherence and, ultimately, care outcomes.
Helping you reach patients in ways they can understand
Lexicomp develops patient education to help healthcare professionals enhance compliance and reduce readmissions by providing patients with a wide range of easy-to-read information (written at a 5th–7th grade reading level) about their condition, treatments, and overall health. Our patient education handouts support the teach-back method. They are available in up to 19 languages and can be customized with the patient's name and clinician information.
