For many people, prescription assistance is getting someone to put their morning and evening medication into a labeled pill box.
While that’s certainly helpful, it doesn’t begin to deliver the oversight and prescription management that will help make certain that the instructions and medication needs are being properly followed. More important, in too many cases, the prescribing physician doesn’t have all the information needed to make a proper prescription. Did the patient remember to tell their doctor about a medication prescribed by someone else? Will they remember to tell the next doctor about your prescription? Those two possibilities alone indicate the critical need for prescription assistance. It’s not just a reminder service; it’s potentially a life-saving service.
