Katie Westgerdes, PharmD, pharmacist at the ONU Healthwise Pharmacy, discuss the Dispill Multi-Dose Packaging System at the Cardinal Health Retail Business Conference on July 19, 2019.
Katie Westgerdes, PharmD: Dispill was by far one of the easiest and simple compliance packaging program that I had found when I first started doing this 4 or 5 years ago. I was looking for something that was easy, didn’t require a lot of equipement, didn’t require expensive software and Dispill was the answer. You just have to pay for your matters, and the software is free. It’s also compatible with lot of other pharmacy software systems, so you can fill a prescription as normal, and it’ll communicate with the other software to print different labels. So it really met all of our needs and has been very simple for us to use. Now, we haven’t had a tremendous amount of compliance packaging patients, I would say the most we had at one time is about 20, so it’s not like we’re doing entire assisted living home with this packaging program, but it’s perfect for our needs, because it helps our patients, we’re able to do it efficiently and at a low cost.
