Pack4U Announces Launch of Ontario Operations 

Aug 2017

Pack4U has announced the availability of their revolutionary packaging solution in Ontario. As the first central fill in North America to provide customized packaging services for independent pharmacies, Pack4U makes it possible for pharmacists to provide specialty packaging linked to digital health tools that help patients take medications as prescribed. For the first time, pharmacists in Ontario have a viable model to participate in the adherence space, shifting focus from operations to leveraging clinical skills to improve health outcomes through active patient engagement

“The launch of Pack4U Ontario is very exciting for our industry,” said Teresa Pitre BScPharm, Pack4U Ontario. “Pack4U is a patient-centered solution to increasing revenue while prioritizing the health and safety of Ontarians. Multi-dose adherence packaging improves quality, efficiency, and safety, and those pharmacies not offering outcomes-based clinical services are likely to fall behind in the market. Pack4U changes the adherence landscape for pharmacists and their patients and we couldn’t be more pleased to be bringing this solution to Ontario.”

Pack4U offers centralized filling of patient-specific multi-dose adherence packaging and spencer® cartridges. Originally created by Catalyst Healthcare, Pack4U uses the latest technology integrated with the Catalyst adherence ecosystem. Pharmacists use the AdhereNet™ platform to actively engage with patients via digital health tools – MyMedTimesmobile app, spencer® in-home dispenser, and oneMAR® electronic Medication Administration Record – linked to specialty packaging prepared by Pack4U. Catalyst’s CentralFill™ software separates packaging fulfillment from clinical services, fueling Pack4U’s cost-effective and rapidly scalable adherence model that gives pharmacists on-demand access to patient-ready packaging. Pack4U eliminates the need for investment in high-cost automation and provides pharmacists with an affordable solution for advancing medication adherence and increasing health outcomes for patients.
