I wanted to solve a problem I’ve seen on the wards and in clinics, as well as mess around with some new web technologies, and thus Medslist was born. Simply, it’s a way patients can store their list of medications online, email a copy to themselves, update them later, print a copy out for their physicians, etc. Sometimes people come in with lists of medications, which is great, but often they’re illegible or hard to follow.
Medslist allows people to list a good number of facts about their medications–including the reason they’re taking it–and perhaps this may encourage some patients to learn why they’re taking it, and have a more active role in their treatment, management, and health.
For now, it’s only working on PC Firefox, Mac Firefox and Safari. I’m having trouble reproducing a bug where the login feature doesn’t work in PC Firefox; if you have this problem, try reloading the site a couple times, and it should work.
How did I have time for this? I’m on Radiology right now, which provides a certain amount of free time (I think they’re trying to get us to be radiologists based on the radiologist lifestyle.)
Please post your criticisms, comments, and suggestions here. If you have bugs, post’em. Feature ideas? Post’em. Right now the feature set is limited, I know: No way to get your password if you lost it, no way to edit medications, etc. But please brainstorm and go wild; what would you like to see on a medication list that your patient carries into the clinic for you?
