Easy and Simple
Med111 is a tool that you can use immediately
You don't have time to install new software and to learn how to use it. Med111 is based on well-known web interfaces and on the computer skills you already have: you select a drug and a language and press "print" ... this is done with a minimum of key strokes in a few seconds. No complicated instructions are necessary to quickly access the over 5,000 different leaflets.
Almost 90% Coverage
Almost all medications used on regular basis are included
Med111 is designed for general practitioners and family physicians. The array of drugs used in this context is large. Our initial focus with med111 was to select drugs that are prescribed by doctors and that are taken orally. The current version of med111 includes 230 generic drugs and 700 brand names.
Only the Important Information
Tell your patient what's most important and give them something to take home
You don't want your patients to forget or miss what is most important by overloading them with too much information orally. Each med111 leaflet contains exactly the information that must be remembered. You can therefore concentrate on the most critical aspects during your conversation with the patient and then hand them an infosheet as a reference to be looked at later.
A twelve-year old can understand the leaflets
People who are ill are often stressed and anxious. This affects their ability to fully understand what they are being told. Their changed reality, all the new information and terminology call for clear and simple communication in a language that everyone understands. The leaflets were written and copy-edited in such a way that they can be understood with minimal schooling levels.
A Wide Range of Languages
The mother tongue of 90% of all patients is covered
The average health professional interacts with people who speak a different mother tongue and therefore have trouble communicating on a daily basis. We therefore made our leaflets available in eight languages: English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Turkish, and Albanian. This means that almost everyone in Switzerland can get their med111 drug leaflet in their native language.
Independent and No Conflicts of Interest
Produced by the well-know publisher of pharma-kritik
