Sun City Rightway begins new medication packaging service

Designed to improve health, safety

Posted

Rightway Pharmacy, 14806 N. Del Webbb Blvd., began a new medication packaging program to help promote and improve health and safety for Sun City and surrounding community pharmacy patients.

PakMyMeds provides a simpler, safer medication experience through convenient, personalized packaging using the latest in pharmacy robotics. The service is designed to prevent dangerous medication errors for patients taking multiple prescriptions. PakMyMeds removes the guesswork for patients, by allowing the pharmacy to pre-sort and package patient medications, labeling each dose by day, date and time.

The convenient, easy-to-open packaging makes taking prescribed medications more straightforward and hassle-free. PakMyMeds allows for greater independence in care-at-home situations and can accommodate prescriptions, OTC meds and even supplements.

Studies show that more than half of patients on multiple medications do not take their medications correctly. Medication non-adherence leads to 125,000 preventable deaths and more than $500 billion in avoidable health care costs each year.

“PakMyMeds eliminates the confusion and inconvenience for patients taking a large number of daily medications,” said Ken Patel, Rightway pharmacist and owner. “The date-and-time stamped pouches mean no more pill sorting and fewer errors. Our patients tell us they’ve experienced life-changing improvements to their health, and family members are thrilled that their loved ones don’t skip doses or accidentally take too many of these vital medications.”

Rightway Pharmacy offers the PakMyMeds service at no charge, and will even deliver the medication to customers for free.

With PakMyMeds, taking medications on-the-go is especially simple. In just seconds, patient can tear off the medication pouches they’ll need. This can help busy patients to continue to live more independently.

The PakMyMeds service is made possible by Rightway Pharmacy’s installation of the RapidPakRx, a pharmacy robot designed and manufactured in the United States. With 23 vision systems and three layers of integrated machine vision pill detection, verification and inspection, RapidPakRx can provide a high volume of multi-med pouches with unparalleled accuracy and speed, at a very low cost.

PakMyMeds is available immediately.
