Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB:RXMD), a personalized healthcare services and technology company, today announced that the company has purchased a new TCGRx Automated Pouch Packaging System for its Miami-Dade County PharmCo location, which is to be installed in the beginning of June 2018.
Progressive Care’s wholly owned subsidiary, PharmCo, LLC located in Miami Beach, will be one of the first in South Florida to offer patients the benefit of this new packaging system that allows for patients to receive customized dosage pouches according to their daily prescription needs.
“We understand that patients continue to struggle with taking their medications on time and as prescribed and one of our core missions is to eliminate the obstacles patients experience that lead to non-adherence,” said S. Parikh Mars, CEO of Progressive Care Inc. “This machine, along with our PharmCo Medication Synchronization Program, allows us to streamline and personalize the format in which we disburse prescriptions. Physicians and patient preferences are shifting toward this type of packaging and the addition of this system will help us to solidify our 5-star performance and build brand differentiation and loyalty both in our markets and across the health care spectrum.”
Customarily used in hospital and facility settings, the Company intends to offer this convenient adherence packaging to retail patients in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Depending on the dosage schedule, pill size, pill amount and language, this machine can provide the perfect pouch designed to make each patient’s experience more user friendly and convenient. Additionally, this new technology is easily integrated within the current pharmacy software. The TCGRx system will add to the Company’s current contingent of other pharma-robotic equipment including a Parata PASS 208.
Similar systems have been making news headlines recently, including PillPack, which casts itself as a full-service online pharmacy that customizes the packaging in which prescriptions are delivered. In April, CNBC reported that Walmart “is looking” at buying PillPack for just under $1 billion.
