Colorado Care Tablet


Colorado Care Tablet (CO Care Tablet) is a Personal Health Record (PHR) Tablet PC application that helps older adults during transitions of care coordinate their care among multiple providers and caregivers and learn about the medication they are consuming. Medication errors are prevalent among older adults who are in transition between the hospital, home, or assisted living community. Co Care Tablet empowers older adults to learn about what medications to take when and care providers to understand all medications an older adult consumes.
