Diabetes and Cardiac Video Series – How Meds Work!™

How Meds Work! is the newest patient education series from Communication Science Inc., makers of Care Kits. It?s an easy-to-use tool that educates diabetes and cardiac patients how specific drugs work. Why? Our study of over 330 patients revealed that a significant hurdle to medication compliance is a basic understanding of their medicine. Patients simply stop taking their meds because they do not understand what they do? or how they work. Providers use How Meds Work! to supplement patient education. Watch patients stick to their meds.
