VUCA Health Announces Additional States to Adopt Eco-Friendly Electronic Drug Information Delivery
VUCA Health's efforts to advance medication information began by addressing low health literacy while recognizing the exorbitant expenses and resources lost each year related to "dispensing" paper. By working with state pharmacy boards and the FDA, VUCA's method enables pharmacy management systems to trigger a specific flag, which allows patients living in states with supportive regulations to receive information through the MedsOnCue solution. The intervention ultimately reduces time and costs of prescription medication information printing and enhances the patient experience.
Features of MedsOnCue include robust informational videos, streamlined access to the patient's pharmacy team, text and email reminders and high resolution medication photos to ensure safety. The additional states providing favorable reviews include Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, New York, Tennessee, Wisconsin, South Carolina, and Washington, totaling nine state approvals in 2017 and 23 states since the start of the campaign in 2016.
"At VUCA, we are continuously pursuing ways to assist pharmacies and healthcare professionals with their health literacy concerns in an ever-changing, technology-focused consumer environment," said VUCA Health CEO David Medvedeff, PharmD, MBA. "Electronic drug information delivery works to reduce costs, while improving patient health literacy, helping pharmacies realize significant savings and improve patient outcomes."
