Revolutionary Approach to Managing Multiple Medications
MediCenter Pharmacy offers a customized packaging solution to help its customers take the right medications, at the right time, every time.
By implementing the Parata Patient Adherence Strip System (Parata PASS™), the 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.
We prepare each customer’s medications in a sealed, clear, plastic packet, called a PASS Pack™, which is arthritic-approved for easy opening. Each PASS Pack is custom-printed with the customer’s name; day and time of dose; medication names, strengths and descriptions; and other details. We supply a weekly / monthly strip of PASS Packs, 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.
Medicenter Pharmacy is proud to offer our customers the safest, most convenient prescription filling options available, promoting higher compliance and reducing medication waste,” said Amy Farley, RPh. “It’s always a challenge for pharmacists to ensure patients adhere to their medication regimen, but it’s reassuring to know that PASS Pack is helping our customers make home medications more manageable.”
To offer the customized PASS Pack, Medicenter Pharmacy invested in a Parata PASS packaging system, which automates preparation of PASS Pack 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 — Parata PASS Packs helps people know when and how to take their medicines,” said DJ Dougherty, CEO of Parata Systems. “Pharmacies that offer Parata PASS are helping their customers reduce risk and increase convenience — ultimately helping them live healthier lives.”
