The MedVend Automatic Medication Dispensing Unit Is the Solution to Patient Medication Non-Adherence

The MedVend Unit Has Been Proven to Increase Patient First-Dose Adherence Through Ease of Use, and Proximity to Physician's Office

WEST BLOOMFIELD, MI--(Marketwired - June 21, 2013) - The world of automated medication dispensing took a quantum-leap with the introduction of the new MedVend AMD. Unlike conventional medication-dispensing machines, the MedVend AMD is designed for patient use. It presents a unique set of benefits for both the Physician's Office and the patient in need of medication.

MedVend explains that it is like having an automated pharmacy on the premises. This frees up the physician's staff to utilize their time for better patient care. MedVend was able to harness the power of cutting-edge technologies to create this user-friendly Medication Dispensing Machine. Not only does it provide an excellent income-stream for the practice, but it insures first-dose patient compliance because patients become a "captive-audience" as they leave the exam room and return to the front lobby.

It has already been established that patient adherence to medications for chronic conditions can improve health outcomes, and reduce overall health care costs. This is now the subject of a multi-year research initiative undertaken by CVS Caremark, together with Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital. MedVend changes the picture on chronic condition medication dispensing. Each AMD is stocked with Prepackaged Medications from an FDA inspected facility, assuring both the physician and the patient of the highest quality medications on the market.

MedVend reports that there is simply nothing else equal to the MedVend AMD's capabilities. It is the use of state-of-the-art video and e-scripting technologies that provides patients with remote, face-to-face consultation, and to have their prescription medications filled in under one minute. MedVend was one of the first organizations approved by the DEA to accept e-prescriptions for controlled substances. The MedVend system provides pharmacists with convenient access to the details about drug inter-action information, Limited Use Codes, and standard dosing requirements for every prescribed drug and patient records.

The MedVend AMD Unit features a convenient "Touch Screen". The patient enters their date of birth and a four digit PIN number. The AMD will provide the patient with their bottled medication, inter-action report, prescription and receipt in less than one minute. If a patient has questions regarding their medication, all they have to do is pick-up the phone located on the AMD, and they will immediately be connected with the pharmacist for a two-way video conference over a secure line of communication.
