What is a Monitored Dosage System?
A monitored dosage system is a simple storage device for a patient’s medication. The dosage system is made up of multiple compartments, divided into the days of week and times of the day common for medicine taking. The system uses distinctive colours and clear labels to keep the patient free from confusion as they take their prescribed medication.
Why is the Monitored Dosage System useful?
The monitored dosage system is especially useful for patients who take multiple types of medication for a number of ailments. It can also help those who are easily confused when taking their medication for example taking the wrong quantity or at the wrong time of day.
The pharmacy team can determine the specific times for each medication. This makes monitoring a patient’s medication usage easier for healthcare practitioners, carers and family members.
