Medication Errors of Visually Impaired Patients: Before and After Use of ScripTalk
To get a deeper dive and statistical evidence as to how much ScripTalk can help individuals who are visually impaired with medication safety, En-Vision America commissioned an independent study to be done with ScripTalk patients.
The study results show that while 35 percent of ScripTalk users reported experiencing a medication error prior to using ScripTalk, no one experienced a medication error related to mixing up medications or taking the wrong medication/dosage since using ScripTalk.
In fact, almost all study participants (98%) reported feeling safer taking their medications since using ScripTalk.
Just under two-thirds (62%) of those questioned said they feel safer because they know they are taking the right medication/dosage.
And more than one-third (37%) of respondents said they feel safer taking their medications because ScripTalk reads them all the information they need to ensure they are taking the right medication.
Issues & Answers Network, Inc. working under the guidance of a certified Institutional Review Board (IRB), conducted the study among ScripTalk users. The goal was to evaluate how well ScripTalk supports users in staying safe and independent while administering medications.
