Well, Doc, it’s a little white pill…

A study out of Sweden published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research says patients like having online access to the medications they’ve been prescribed:

We found that users of the provider-based personal medication record “My dispensed medications” appreciated the access to their record. Since we found that the respondents liked the design of the Web site and perceived that the information was easy to understand, the study provided no reason for system changes.

Not to sound like a Luddite, but were the patients informed that the names of their medicines are written on the bottles?  And memorizing those names and dosages is, you know, kind of a good idea!
