The Medicine Cabinet
Introducing the Medicine Cabinet
Welcome to the Medicine Cabinet - the new medication section on PainScale. We have made finding individual medications easier. All medications now come preset with the dosage, for example Acetaminophen 250mg. As side from making medications easier to find, the medicine cabinet will allow individuals to schedule medications for when they are supposed to be taken and set reminders to take the medication from the PainScale App. Medication reminders have been something that users have been asking for and we listened.
When individuals first view the Medicine Cabinet in their My Health Profile, it will already be pre-populated with any medications that they have previously entered into PainScale via the My Health Profile or via a Pain Log. Individuals can then decide which medications they wish to keep in their Medicine Cabinet or delete from their Medicine Cabinet.
