what we offer
Daily Medication delivery
At Vida Pharmacy, we train and staff our own delivery drivers with the latest technology to ensure your residents receive medications. We believe residents having the medications they need when they need them is vital. We have a refined workflow that allows us to consistently deliver results everyday whether we receive orders electronically, by fax or by phone.
Medication adherence can affect quality and length of life, health outcomes, and overall healthcare costs. The failure to take medications as prescribed is as dangerous and costly as many illnesses.
We at Vida Pharmacy want to make it as easy as possible to take medications at the right dose and the right time, which is why we offer multiple compliance packaging based on your facility’s specific needs. They are designed to help keep residents safe, reduce medication errors, aid nursing staff in administration, and maintain regulatory compliance. Each order is packaged for individualized dosage and cross-checked for interactions and allergies.
Single-dose Bubble packaging
We can package each of your medications in its own card to quickly tell if you have taken each dose. This is a great option for those that don't need much assistance but could benefit from their prescriptions being more organized.
dispill Multi-dose blister packaging
Are you taking multiple medications every day? Dispill multi-dose blister packaging is a great option for organizing those prescriptions. Your meds will be sorted by time and day of dose and packaged into individual dosage packs. Each pack can be individually removed from the card, so you can take it with you with ease. This method is popular with those in independent living or home care.
Parata Multi-Dose Strip packaging
Similar to Dispill, Parata strip packaging is a multi-dose system that organizes your medications by dosage date and time and packages each dose an a tear-away pack. This system is automated, greatly decreasing the chance of error. It is easy to view and verify that all pills are accounted for in each pack, which makes this option great for assisted living and nursing home facilities.
If you don't need any special packaging, that's great! We offer traditional pill bottle options as well.
