Synchrony Pharmacy announces launch of SynchronyRx@Home
Mail order pharmacy includes PackEDGE which will support safety and medication adherence for Seniors
LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 16, 2022 — Synchrony Health Services, headquartered in Louisville, KY, is thrilled to announce the launch of SynchronyRx@Home through Synchrony Pharmacy. The SynchronyRx@Home service offers a convenient option to receive medications that are packaged together by the administration time of each medication throughout the day, and delivered directly to the patient’s home.
Synchrony Pharmacy has already been offering a 30-day supply of transitional medications to residents who discharge to home from the nursing facilities they serve. In fact, Synchrony Pharmacy was recognized with the Herb Langsam award from the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists for this innovative service. Now this offering is being transformed to allow for automatic refills and safety through a customized medication delivery program named PackEDGE, that promotes safety and medication adherence through its special strip packaging, which is sorted by time of day.
Randy Bufford, President and CEO of Synchrony Health Services stated, “Synchrony Pharmacy has been successful in providing residents a 30-day supply of medications upon transition to the home, and now we can move to servicing them beyond that first 30-day supply. This enhanced service will eventually be offered to all seniors at home. This customized medication delivery program will enhance the safety of self-administration and makes it easy for patients to adhere to their medication schedules, since they are pre-packaged by the time of day.”
“In addition to providing pharmacy services to SNF and Senior Housing, we can now service all seniors who reside at home. Medication errors are high for the senior population. By offering PackEDGE via a convenient delivery service, we are making medication adherence easier than ever,” added Joe Whitt, COO of Synchrony Pharmacy.
In addition, SynchronyRx@Home offers 24/7 customer service, automatic refills, free shipping, and supports continuous communication with the resident’s current physician. Clinical services include pharmacist-driven comprehensive medication reviews.
