The Vantage™ Vision MDM 2 medication detection machine offers higher speeds and incredible accuracy, guaranteed to bring added efficiency and labor savings to your pharmacy.
The Growth of Adherence Packaging
Patient medication adherence is a growing concern among pharmacies. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over 23% of the US population, which is more than 70 million people, take 3 or more medications per day and 12% take 5 or more medications per day. Also, many hospital readmissions are due to poor medication adherence.
Multi-dose packaging is a great way to help your customers increase their adherence. They will no longer have to fill their weekly pill trays on Sunday evenings, or have to make several trips to the pharmacy each month because you will have them on a MedSync program.
Multi-dose packaging can also help your pharmacy be more efficient in filling customers prescriptions. With better adherence, you can increase your sales and reduce DIR fees for not having good adherence. It can also help distinguish your pharmacy from other competitors that are not offering this as a service.
Euclid® Medical Products has developed a marketing tool kit called MyMeds+™ to help you promote your new multi-dose adherence packaging service. We can provide you with materials to help educate your customers of the benefits of this new service.
