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

Hudson, OH (PRWEB) December 5, 2009 -- Lexi-Comp, Inc., a provider of clinical information, drug data solutions, and patient education materials for healthcare institutions, understands the importance of effective communication between the health care professional and the patient with regard to medication use. An Ohio State University study found that noncompliance with prescription medication causes 125,000 deaths and costs an estimated $75.6 billion annually. Additional research has shown that a leading reason for noncompliance is language barriers. With a patient population of over 45 million people speaking a language other than English, multi-language access to medical information is a matter of national importance. Amidst the growing challenges of accommodating diverse patient populations and maintaining a focus on patient safety, Lexi-Comp has made it a priority to create clear, concise patient education materials in multiple languages.

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
