Lexi-Comp's multi-language patient education leaflets support Joint Commission initiative to establish standards for language access in healthcare organizations.

Additional research has shown that a leading reason for noncompliance is language barriers.

The Patient Education Module within Lexi-Comp's web-based hospital-wide resource, Lexi-Comp® ONLINE™, makes it possible for healthcare professionals to access, customize, and print vital take-home information for patients. Lexi-Comp's leaflets cover over 1800 generic and 7000 brand name adult and pediatric medications, as well as information relevant to diagnosis of more than 1300 diseases, conditions, and procedures. All medication leaflets are available in the 18 languag
