MEDS Chart logoIt can be hard to obtain a complete list of a patient’s medications. It can be equally hard to find out how patients feel their meds are working, and how they are actually taking them. There may be medication-related problems that can be avoided by asking the right questions. It’s not always easy for patients to understand how to take their medications, especially when there are many prescriptions from several prescribers. Pill bottles don’t always show the name of the indication that they are meant to treat. Using the MEDS Chart helps patients voice how they feel their medications are working for them, and to work more closely with caregivers and clinicians to:

  • Discover if medications are working
  • Find out what’s really going on with adherence
  • Improve medication safety
  • Promote better health outcomes

The MEDS Chart helps patients reinforce the reason for taking a medication, allowing them to better express how they feel about taking it – and if there are any concerns:

Any CareOregon member can request a MEDS Chart that shows all their medications. The MEDS Chart can help patients explain to their doctors or caregivers if they have a medication side effect they don’t like, or if they are concerned about a medication not working. Letting their doctor, pharmacist or caregiver know how they feel about their medications can help patients find options that may work better for them and lead to better outcomes and adherence.
