5 Reasons Single Dose Packaging Can Be Great Addition to Your Pharmacy Business
To stay competitive, it is important to diversify your pharmacy business and offer multiple solutions to meet the needs of all patients and organizations in your community.
Single dose blister packaging has proven for over 30 years to be an effective compliance solution to help pharmacies meet the needs of the communities they serve.
As you explore packaging solutions for your pharmacy, it is important to consider 5 reasons single dose packaging can be a great option to add to your pharmacy offerings:
It’s a low-cost investment
It is easy and inexpensive to get started with single dose packaging. If you do not have a heat sealer, you can begin with pressure-sensitive options. All you need to get started is a case of cards and blisters, a roller and a sealing tray. No software and no capital equipment is required.
It improves adherence
Although we know that multi-dose adherence packaging organized by dose time is the best solution for adherence, in certain cases where multi-dose is not feasible, single dose blister packages are much more intuitive than a pill bottle. It is a great solution for storing, retrieving, and administering medications, especially in a skilled care facility setting.
It helps you expand your market opportunities
Single dose blister packaging is a preferred solution in skilled nursing and correctional facilities, and is a great option to offer if you are looking to acquire this line of business. Also, offering both single dose and multi-dose packaging solutions can make your pharmacy a one-stop-shop for larger long-term care organizations that house independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, memory care and more.
You can compliment your Multi-Dose Adherence Solution
Multi-dose packaging is a great option for helping patients and caregivers better manage multiple medication treatments. When it comes to certain situations like emergency orders, mid-cycle changes and mid-cycle new orders, single dose is a great option to fill in gaps and compliment your multi-dose compliance packaging solution.
There are a wide variety of packaging options to fit every need
Single Dose packaging comes in a number of options to help your pharmacy meet the needs of all of the communities you serve. Options include heat seal, pressure-sensitive, short cycle, unit dose reclaimable, and single dose for automation. You can even request branding and customization on your packaging.
