GREAT NECK, N.Y., Dec. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Precision LTC Pharmacy is pleased to announce it now offers a customized packaging solution to help its customers take the right medications, at the right time, every time. By implementing the Patient Adherence Strip System (Precision Pak), Precision LTC Pharmacy offers increased confidence, convenience and safety by pre-sorting multiple prescriptions into a single package for the specified time of day. It's easier for caregivers to administer, and easier for seniors to adhere to complex medication regimens, both of which are essential to extending independence and health.
Precision LTC Pharmacy prepares each customer's medications in a sealed, clear, plastic packet, called Precision Pak, which is arthritic-approved for easy opening. Each Precision Pak is custom-printed with the customer's name; day and time of dose; medication names, strengths and descriptions; and other details. Precision LTC Pharmacy supplies a monthly strip of Precision Pak, which are rolled into a dispensing box, providing a quick and easy way for caregivers to verify that the last dose was taken, minimizing potential errors.
Precision LTC Pharmacy is the first pharmacy in our area to offer Precision Pak packaging for customers.
"Precision LTC Pharmacy is proud to offer our customers the safest, most convenient prescription filling options available, promoting higher compliance and reducing medication waste," said Frank Longo, RPh. "It's always a challenge for pharmacists to ensure patients adhere to their medication regimen, but it's reassuring to know that Precision Pak is helping our customers make home medications more manageable."
To offer the customized Precision Pak, Precision LTC Pharmacy invested in a Parata PASS packaging system, which automates preparation of Precision Paks strips at the pharmacy, to ensure the highest levels of safety and accuracy.
"From seniors living independently at home, to caregivers and their family members, to parents whose children must take medications at school, to busy travelers - Precision Pak helps people know when and how to take their medicines," said DJ Dougherty, CEO of Parata Systems. "Precision Pak are helping their customers reduce risk and increase convenience - ultimately helping them live healthier lives."
Here is How It Works:
Precision LTC Pharmacy will send a box containing medications according to date and time of dosage. When taking a medication, simply tear off the next pouch. Each pouch is clearly labeled with the users name, drug information, time of administration, and usage directions, all in an easy-to-read format.
Forget about organizing Med Planners! Just carry on taking medications as normal and Precision LTC Pharmacy will check in before the next batch is due. Customers will be asked if there has been any changes to the medications and make sure dosages are accurate.
Precision LTC Pharmacy also provides pre-printed reminders packed in-between each pouch for products that can't be packaged like liquids and inhalers.
Getting started is simple, send us a list of current medications and insurance. Precision LTC Pharmacy will than transfer the prescriptions to our pharmacy and deliver them at NO extra charge. Only pay co-pays. Precision LTC Pharmacy will refill medications when they are available so customers will never run out!
