Hospitals, clinics, healthcare facilities, and pharmacies have to keep a careful balance
in today's healthcare market between cost-savings and clear procedures & communication. With reimbursements changing at the same time that responses are quickening due to the Covid-19 pandemic, individual hospital systems and pharmacies have come up with creative ways to be both efficient and thorough.
Aviva Care Pharmacy in Sunrise, FL, turned to ChromaLabel to assist with clearly communicating to their customers how and when to take certain medications.
There are custom-printed blister packs for pills available to purchase, but they are much more expensive than the standard blister packs. So Aviva needed a solution to clearly tell their customers when the medication should be taken, yet a solution that would be affordable:
We reached out to Irina, the pharmacy manager, and she kindly agreed to share a picture with what they're doing:
Hi, we'd love to share. We are Aviva Care Pharmacy. We use the 2” x 3” rectangle labels for Long Term Care facilities to differentiate AM, NOON and PM unit dose blister packs. It's more cost effective to put the labels vs ordering pre-made blister packs from a vendor. I've attached a picture so you can see how it's used. I've blocked off any patient information.
Should you have a communication, organization, inventory, or personnel management problem, odds are we can help you solve it affordably and simply - while maintaining the same level of care and thoroughness that is expected.
Thanks to Aviva Care Pharmacy in Florida, as well as all the other pharmacies, clinics, labs, and hospitals that are helping to keep us safe in 2020!
