Information Prescriptions (Ix)
Information Prescriptions direct patients to Web sites with sound information about their individual conditions. The Ix pad, which is the same width as an Rx pad, fits in a doctor's pocket and lists a variety of Aurora Web site links that take patients to information on:
- Health conditions
- Medical tests
- Wellness information
There also is room on the pad for staff to add other sites that may be beneficial to patients.
Patients who do not have Internet access can get the same data from Aurora librarians, who will research their needs and provide a tailored package of information. Physicians can ask to have the same package sent to their office so they know what resources their patients have accessed.
The Ix pads are available free of charge from the Aurora Libraries. To order, call 414-649-7357.
