First Databank, Inc

First Databank (FDB) and Polyglot Systems announce a partnership to improve medication adherence among high-risk individuals (eg, those with low health literacy, impaired vision, and/or language barriers). Through the partnership, FDB will become the primary distributor of Polyglot's Meducation simplified patient medication instructions. Meducation is a cloud-based solution accessible to health care providers within their clinical workflow via their EMR system or as a stand-alone solution. The system generates simple, personalized medication instructions in 21 languages to patients via a patient portal, email, or paper handout. Instructions, including drug, dose, and time of day, are simplified to a fifth- to eighth-grade reading level and include pictograms.
