Learn About PASS

Revolutionize medication administration and improve patient adherence and outcomes with the Parata PASS solution.

Why choose Parata PASS?


Make Medication Management Easy

With Parata PASS, you make it easy for patients to take the right medication at the right time, every time. Parata PASS packagers automate the preparation of unit- and multi-dose strip packaging, replacing bulky blister packs and cumbersome medication planners. Medications and over-the-counter oral solids are organized by day and time of dose in clearly labeled plastic pouches.

Impact Patient Adherence and Outcomes

Nearly half of the 117 million U.S. adults with at least one chronic condition do not take their medications as prescribed. PASS packaging gives your retail patients and family caregivers a simple way to manage even complex medication regimens with confidence. Pharmacies around the country are using Parata PASS strip packaging as part of comprehensive medication adherence programs, helping patients lead healthier lives and reducing health care costs.

Revolutionize Medication Pass

In long-term care and assisted living settings, PASS packaging makes medication administration faster and safer. It helps prevent potential medication errors caused by interruptions and distractions during med pass. And as an additional safeguard, barcodes can be printed on pouches for bedside scanning.

Improve Safety from Script to Patient

Each step in the Parata PASS process enforces safety. During replenishment, barcode scanning confirms a match between the drug and canister. Our smart canisters communicate with PASS so the packager always recognizes and dispenses from the correct canister, regardless of its location in the unit. And if any intervention is needed while PASS is packaging, the machine will pause until the prompt is resolved.
