The change in paper charts to electronic records has enabled health providers to print out medication lists to give to patients.
Keeping the medication list in wallets and/or purses can help decrease medication errors for the patient when traveling between providers and follow up visits.
It also helps the patient to have a reference and not have to depend on memory when a patient is ill and not feeling well.
A printed out medication list can also help emergency responders move quickly with assessments and medications if a prior health condition is known in advance of implementing unknown measures. Knowing about heart medication can help triage a patient quicker and save valuable time in a crisis.
