Dispensing medications in blister packing – cards, provide patients with safe, personalized way of taking medications. In particular, blister packs are a daily bubble packages that give the patient specific information on day and time that the medication should be taken. By having the medication in one neat package and laid out in a way that is understandable to the patient/ their healthcare provider, the goal is to reduce medical non-adherence and therefore therapeutic success.
At Coastal Care pharmacy we can custom blister pack most medications, including over-the-counter medications or supplements according to patients schedule. This ensures that the correct medication is taken at the required time, every day.
We use an automated system for preparing medications in blister cards. The medications are automatically selected, counted and placed in the blisters, while the pharmacy’s management system sends the prescriptions to the robot electronically. The resulting reliability is clearly superior to that of the manual preparation method in terms of efficacy, safety and accuracy.
