If we think patients would load their pillbox on a per-medication basis, then 
both of the above can be achieved within a single form because in both cases 
they will want

... <brand > <drug> <strength> <form> <regimen> <notes> ...

and the only difference is that in the case of the hospital-oriented form there 
is insertion at left of

<health issue / encounter> 

which the patient may be able to ignore, or might in fact appreciate to know.

PS I am suspecting that it may be desirable to soft-return onto a new line the 
<notes> both for reasons of avoiding to split the notes text onto a new line 
(better to have it on a single line) and if it would be on a new line, then to 
indent it by  a suitable amount (10mm?) as:
          Notes: <notes>
and I would wonder whether the text formatting should be any different...
