Medical History Form

It is very important to keep an accurate record of your medication and health history. This is very useful to healthcare providers when you seek treatment. The form from the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) can be used to document all of your health history information.

Pharmacy Home: With the advent of low cost medication deals, patients find themselves going to different pharmacies to get the cheapest prices. This practice could put patients at risk for drug interactions and therapeutic duplications. Pharmacies routinely screen patient profiles for problems. If patients have medications filled at multiple pharmacies, pharmacists cannot provide this important service. Therefore, it is important to pick one pharmacy and let them know about all the medications you are taking including the ones you have filled at other pharmacies.
