Medication Management Systems Inc. permits pharmacists to assist patients on multiple medications and supplements

Some EHRs may want to incorporate some this programs features and/or create interfaces. SV

With pricey prescription drugs at the center of the health care affordability debate, is anyone paying attention to whether all those medicines are doing what they're supposed to do?

Using the company's software, a pharmacist is guided to ask patients about all the medications they are taking, including over-the-counter products, prescriptions they "borrow" from family or friends, herbal products and social drugs -- alcohol, tobacco and caffeine. The software also helps pharmacists get a complete picture of all the conditions the medications are meant to treat.
