Compliance packaging is a very safe and efficient method of dispensing medicines. The packages promote independent living while assuring that medicine is being taken timely and properly.
Packs may be the answer if you’ve ever found yourself in one of the following scenarios:
- You forget whether you’ve taken your medicine or not
- You find it difficult to track refills
- You are visually impaired or have dexterity issues
- You are a caregiver who would benefit from easier monitoring of doses
- You travel frequently and would prefer an organized system of taking your medicine
Frustration can lead to errors that are easily avoided by the use of pre-packaged medicines.
Compliance packs are individually prepared every week, and provision is made for regular weekly delivery if desired. When a mid-week change occurs, such as a new prescription, your current pack will be retrieved, fixed, and promptly returned.
PacMed strips are made up of individual clear cellophane pouches containing single doses of medications. Each pouch indicates the patient’s name and all drug information for that pouch. The weekly strip comes in a handy dispensing box. The pouches are easily removed and tucked into a purse or pocket to take to a restaurant or a weekend getaway.
Blister Packs are 7 day cards that can accommodate up to four time periods per day. The packs are booklet style with punch-out foil blisters and are easy to read and manage. An updated medication summary is provided with each pack clearly showing the patient’s current medications.
Dispill is another form of 7-day packaging that is less compact than the blister packs but allows for individual day or dose tear-offs. Each punch-out time-slot is colour coded and indicates the patients name and drug information.
Our pharmacists will monitor all refills and ensure your prescriptions are always current. Any non-prescription items, such as vitamins, can be easily incorporated into your pack.
Our team will be happy to show you what we have to offer and even give you a sample to try before you commit to change.
