MEDS: Making Prescriptions Easier to Talk About with Doctors

The My Easy Drug System (MEDS) from CareOregon helps patients better communicate with their health care providers and pharmacists to boost medication safety, get answers to questions, discover issues and promote better health outcomes. Patients fill out a MEDS chart – a simple, one-page form – which allows them to list their medications and describe how they are working. The system was developed based on feedback from a focus group, which found patients were having trouble giving feedback and asking questions about their prescriptions.
