Pill Card Mentioned in AHRQ Video

October 23, 2010

We just came across this Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) PSA encouraging patients to use a "pill card" to organize their medication information. Although PictureRx isn't mentioned, PictureRx co-founder Sunil Kripalani, MD, MSc coined the term and the pill card forms the basis of PictureRx. We're happy to hear mainstream groups like AHRQ encouraging the use of patient-centered medication lists, which can improve adherence and reduce medication errors.

This PSA encourages health care consumers to take an active role in their health care by keeping a readily available pill card that lists all the medications they take.
