GoToPills helps patients and healthcare providers reduce the health and liability risks associated with off-label medications.
By prescribing and dispensing off-label drugs healthcare providers open themselves to liability and patients taking these drugs become test subjects without their knowledge or consent. In many cases off-label medications can be beneficial, however it is the lack of information that is the problem. GoToPills decreases these liability risks and increases patient safety by instantly alerting patients and healthcare providers if a medication is off-label.
Patients armed with this knowledge can truly make informed choices about their medication options and physicians and pharmacists mitigate their risk of liability by informing patients about the off-label status of their medication including risks, benefits, and alternatives.
