|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Adverse Drug Event||Other: Medcheck message|
- A drug safety module called MedCheck was developed for PatientSite. This allows physicians to query patients automatically 10 days after they receive a new prescription asking them questions about their new prescription. In this study new enhancements will be tested.
- Participants will be assigned at random to the intervention group or control group. The intervention group will receive a single electronic PatientSite message asking them questions about the new prescription which is then forwarded to their physician. The control group will receive a generic message about medication safety.
- To identify adverse drug events, a telephone survey and medical record review will be conducted of patients in the intervention group and controls.
- This study will run for 12 months.
