We believe that Consumer Medication Information (CMI) should be USEFUL and ACCESSIBLE to everyone. Useful, as defined by the FDA Guidance Document on Written Consumer Medication Information while also being Accessible to those challenged with literacy or visual difficulties.
Consumer Medication Information provided by AudibleRx has the potential to be accessible and useful to a much larger percent of the population than current medication information options.
AudibleRx provides Consumer Medication Information in an easy-to-listen audible format. When accessed on their computer, mobile device or AudibleRx Kiosk, the consumer will LISTEN to a human voice narrate the information session. The consumer will then have the option to scroll the screen and read along with the narration.
Our education program is about consistent, useful and accessible medication information patients can use and understand.
With both a search bar or alphabetical listing, patients or caregivers can easily choose their medications from the AudibleRx library.
“The pharmacy profession has accepted responsibility for providing patient education and counseling in the context of pharmaceutical care to improve patient adherence and reduce medication related problems.” -ASHP
Unfortunately, patients rarely receive the level of counseling as described by the American Society of Health System Pharmacists.
Whether at the hospital bedside or pharmacy counter, patients are regularly counseled about multiple prescriptions in less than two minutes. The patient is then sent home with stacks of medication leaflets that may be difficult to read.
The intent of providing Consumer Medication Information to patients is to supplement (not replace) the counseling they receive from their caregiver.
After a patient or caregiver listens to a medication information session on AudibleRx they will have a clear understanding of what they do and don’t know about their medications and be in a much better position to take educated questions to their own health care provider.
Increasing the medication-care conversation between patients and their health care providers is an excellent way to potentially increase your institutions (Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems) HCAHPS and Patient Satisfaction scores.
Patients who understand and participate in their treatment are more likely to have positive outcomes, fewer medication misadventures, and decreased likelihood of being readmitted to the hospital.
Help your patients achieve their best possible outcome with their medications. Provide CMI your patients will access and use.
