RxSafe recently announced the launch of PakMyMeds™ Network, a no-hassle solution to connect independent pharmacy owners with local patients who want an easier way to take their medications. Using sophisticated online and mobile ad networks, social media, geotargeting and geofencing, PakMyMeds Network will advertise -- in a 50-mile circle around participating pharmacies -- to patients who could benefit from improved medication adherence and/or are searching for adherence packaging services. Patients who opt-in will then be connected with a partner pharmacy in the PakMyMeds Network.
RapidPakRx-Enabled Strip Packaging Promotes Adherence
“For the first time, independent pharmacies that offer RapidPakRx-enabled strip packaging services to their patients will be able to cast a wider net in promoting their adherence programs, with virtually no effort on their part,” says William Holmes, President & CEO of RxSafe.
Patients who sign up via PakMyMeds.com can find a local pharmacy offering to neatly package their daily medications into an attractive box. Each PakMyMeds box can accommodate a month’s supply of pre-sorted medications, organized into clearly labeled pouches, one for each medication administration time, or med pass. Making patients’ drug regimens easier to manage has been shown to improve medication adherence, and ultimately improves patient health outcomes. Medication non-adherence leads to 125,000 preventable deaths and more than $300 billion in avoidable healthcare costs in the U.S. each year, according to the Journal of Managed Care Pharmacy.

Patients Prefer Local Pharmacies
“Mail-order pharmacy has been around for decades, but experience has taught us that most patients prefer local pharmacies,” says Holmes. “PakMyMeds enables patients to keep the personal relationship, rapport and trust they already enjoy with their local pharmacist. In addition, patients who opt-in to the PakMyMeds Network can receive all the benefits of adherence packaging, while avoiding some of mail-order pharmacy’s many drawbacks, including insecurity of delivery, delays/damage/hassles with mail, and extreme temperatures that sometimes occur in transporting prescriptions, which may compromise medication efficacy.”
