RxSafe has launched a strip packaging system, RapidPakRx, for retail pharmacies.
Designed to ensure medication adherence , the new automated strip packaging system features 23 cameras and three layers of integrated machine vision pill detection, verification, and inspection features.
RapidPakRx can organize prescription medications into individual multi-med pouches to ensure adherence of medication.
Each pouch will be distinctly labeled with precise information, including medication name, day of week, date and time of administration of the drug.
The individual multi-med pouches will help patients to follow medication instruction at home or on-the-go.
RapidPakRx, which helps to avoid the use of trays or remote tray filling stations, runs 20 bulk-loaded universal cartridges that dispense all oral solid medications such as gel caps, half tabs and new generics.
The three-pass integrated machine vision verification system helps improve accuracy.
The firm also offers PakMyMeds marketing services program to help customers launching a packaging adherence program in pharmacy locations.
According to the Journal of Managed Care Pharmacy, the resolving of medication adherence crisis will lead to 125,000 preventable deaths and up to $300bn in avoidable healthcare costs each year.
RxSafe president and CEO William Holmes said: “RapidPakRx is an affordable, effective, on-demand adherence packaging system. Pharmacies can now offer their patients a product that meets their needs and improves patient adherence.
“No one else has ever attempted to build a ‘pour and package’ multi-med strip packaging system. I am proud of the game-changing technology that RxSafe is bringing to market.”
RxSafe also produces other pharmacy workflow solutions, including, RxSafe 1800, RxSafe 900, RxVault 1800, RxVault 900 and RxAWS (auxillary workstation).
