Gulf Shore Apothecary (GSA) is pleased to announce that it now 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.
Gulf Shore Apothecary prepares 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. Gulf Shore Apothecary supplies 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.
Gulf Shore Apothecary is the first pharmacy in the Naples, FL area to offer PASS Pack packaging for customers.
“Gulf Shore Apothecary is proud to offer our customers the safest, most convenient prescription filling options available, promoting higher compliance and reducing medication waste,” said Alex Herwig, 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, Gulf Shore Apothecary 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 caregivers and their family members, to parents whose children must take medications at school, to busy travelers, the Parata PASS Pack helps people know when and how to take their medicines,” said Tom Rhoads, CEO of Parata Systems. “Pharmacies that offer Parata PASS are helping their customers reduce risk and increase convenience — ultimately helping them live healthier lives.”
