Precision LTC Pharmacy in the US has introduced its new customised Precision Pak packaging solution, which helps patients handle multiple medications.
A set of sealed, clear, plastic packets, Precision Pak is also arthritic-approved for easy opening.
The solution also includes pre-printed reminders packed in-between each pouch, enabling patients to take the right medications at the right time. The solution has also provided a quick and easy way for caregivers to keep track of the medicine given to a patient.
Developed as a patient adherence strip system, the new solution pre-sorts a range of prescriptions into a single package.
In order to provide the new solution, Precision LTC has also invested in a Parata PASS packaging system, which automates in-house preparation of Precision Pak strips.
Parata Systems CEO DJ Dougherty said: "From seniors living independently at home, to caregivers and their family members, to parents whose children must take medications at school, to busy travellers, Precision Pak helps people know when and how to take their medicines.
"Precision Pak are helping their customers reduce risk and increase convenience, ultimately helping them live healthier lives."
Precision Pak can be custom-printed with the customer’s name, day and time of dose, as well as medication names, strengths and descriptions.
Precision LTC Pharmacy currently offers a monthly strip of Precision Pak, which is rolled into a dispensing box.
