Medication Essential Fact Sheets

Help patients achieve better outcomes with easy-to-understand health education resources

Complement your patient education to help patients understand their medications

Micromedex® Medication Essential Fact Sheets are brief and easy-to-understand medication education handouts that support better patient understanding and medication adherence, as well as help improve medication-related Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores.

Under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Hospital Value-Based Purchasing Program, reimbursements are partially based on how well an organization performs on the HCAHPS survey—a direct reflection of patient satisfaction.

With such high stakes hinging on HCAHPS scores, hospitals and health systems need effective strategies to help create a consistent culture of care quality that exceeds patient expectations. And when it comes to HCAHPS scores, effective communication and consistent education most likely play a role.

Medication Essential Fact Sheets offer:

  • To-the-point medication education: Over 2,400 titles designed to help patients understand the name of their medication, the reason it was prescribed and what possible side effects could occur
  • Education designed with the patient in mind: Brief, easy-to-understand facts about the medication
  • Customization options: Include your hospital logo
