Phillips Pharmacy partnered with TCGRx, the maker of the AdherePac system, to automate the process of packaging each patient’s medicines.

Phillips Pharmacy partnered with TCGRx, the maker of the ATP 2 automated tablet packaging system, to automate the process of packaging each patient’s medicines, which are all verified by barcode to ensure accuracy and safety for each pouch produced.

“Pharmacies that offer AdherePac are helping their customers live healthier lives by helping them adhere to the medication program they were prescribed,” stated Duane Chudy, president and chief executive officer of TCGRx, based in Powers Lake, Wis. “TCGRx’s role is to help both the pharmacy and their patients by using the latest technology to guarantee the right medication is in the right pouch for the right patient, every time.”

The adherence packaging service offers physicians one phone call monthly per patient to verify refill orders plus at-a-glance information of a patient’s package to see all medications prescribed by others during the office visit. Optional dispensing of shorter cycles is available if medications require dosage adjustments throughout the month, TCGRx said, adding that the solution saves patients money on new medications and the disposal of unused medications.

“My goal, as pharmacist, is to serve the patient, ensuring their safety and health well-being,” according to MacArdy. “There is no limitation to the AdherePac progam and who chooses to use it. Anyone can take advantage of the simplicity of the program — business travelers, vacationers, active seniors, home health services, parents of school-age children that require medication during school hours, children in daycare or summer camp programs. Doctors can partner with pharmacies like Phillips to guarantee that the prescription written will be taken as required, making the doctor, pharmacy and patient successful.”

Phillips Pharmacy plans to hold an open-house at the Mile Bluff Clinic on March 1 to give an overview of the AdherePac program and how technology is helping to improve the future medication administration.
