Medical Packaging Inc. (MPI), a global healthcare packaging solutions provider for over 40 years, provides innovative pharmacy packaging solutions for packaging oral solid and oral liquid medication, and overwrapping and labeling of ampoules, vials and syringes, which contribute to saving patient’s lives by reducing medication errors while also increasing efficiency and automation in pharmacy packaging operations.

MPI’s pharmacy packaging solutions, which include the packaging system, MPI-certified consumable materials and MPI’s exclusive Pak-EDGE™ UD Barcode Labeling Software, have been developed in adherence to industry specifications and meet the requirements of governing regulatory bodies for the repackaging of medication into unit dose. Optional integration to First DataBank™ drug data, imprints and images library, assists the pharmacy in reducing potential dispensing errors and increasing safety and efficiency.

MPI’s solutions for packaging oral solid medication include the Auto-Print™ Standard packaging system, which packages sixty (60) packages per minute (ppm), the Auto-Print™ Express 90 packaging system, which packages ninety (90) packagers per minute (ppm), and the Auto-Print™ Punch Cut Machine, which packages forty-five (45) packages per minute (ppm) and produces unit dose packages with a punched hole in the upper half of the package specifically for use with centralized, robotic systems. Additional functionality can be achieved through the optional Oral Solid Feeder attachment, which packages bulk medication from the bottle into individual unit dose packages, the Variable Length Option, which allows for adjustment to the package length to accommodate packaging of non-standard sized tablets or capsules, and the Barcode Verifier Option, which automatically scans each package to assure that the printed barcode can be accurately scanned at the bedside.

MPI’s solutions for packaging oral liquid medication include the FluidoseSeries™ 5h packaging system for packaging medication into unit dose cups and the Auto-Draw™ Syringe Filling System for packaging medication into oral syringes.

The Fluidose™ Series 5h, which packages twenty-two (22) packages per minute (ppm), dependent upon fill rate and viscosity, produces a single, bar-coded, unit dose package containing liquid medication to be delivered to the bedside. Fluidose™ Series 5 is compliant with The Joint Commission (TJC) regulations for dispensing oral liquid medication and is capable of dispensing volumes between 1 mL and 40mL. Additional functionality can be achieved through the Barcode Verifier Option, which automatically scans each package to assure that the printed barcode can be accurately scanned at the bedside.

The Auto-Draw™ Oral Syringe Filling System is a semi-automatic solution that is capable of filling most oral slip syringes up to 50 mL in volume of varying viscosities providing the solution for batch filling of syringes with speed, accuracy and repeatability. Filling operations can be completed in a manner of seconds and no additional software is required. MPI’s Auto-Draw™ is ideally used for doses of oral liquid medication less than 5 mL or for those medications that are not typically packaged in unit dose cups or are not commercially available in unit dose.

MPI’s solutions for ancillary packaging include overwrapping and labeling solutions for ampoules, vials and syringes. MPI’s overwrapping solutions include the Pharmacy Accessory Bagging System (PABS), which produces up to thirty-five (35) filled and sealed packages per minute. Labeling and bar-coding is done directly on the bag, eliminating costly labels and allowing for customization of the barcode. Bags are available in several different sizes to accommodate even the most irregularly sized items. MPI’s Auto-Print™ Max Bagger, packages in bags with a punched hole in the upper half of the package specifically for use with centralized, robotic systems.

MPI’s labeling solutions include the Pharmacy Accessory Label Printer (PALP), which are offered with either direct thermal or thermal transfer technology to quickly and efficiently print accurate bar-coded labels for placement on ampoules, vials and syringes. Labels are available in several different styles to accommodate all labeling needs. MPI’s Auto-Wrap Syringe Labeling System, with labeling and wrapping speed of up to twenty (20) syringes per minute, automates the process of labeling syringes and assists in increasing production throughput while reducing repetitive stress injuries (RSI) by producing a printed label and automatically wrapping it around a syringe in one single motion. The Auto-Wrap™ can accommodate any type of oral or injectable syringe from ½ mL to 60 mL without any need for adjustment or changing of parts. Open-faced design allows for easy loading of label stock and access to all controls.

The DOSIS L60 Meets Your Short-Cycle Needs

Did you know that an L60 can produce 60 fully ready (filled, sealed, and patient labeled) seven-day/count cards at 45 cards per hour? Yes, the same machine for 30/31 Day single medication blister cards is your answer to Short-Cycle Filling Staying with the standard blister card that you are utilizing today, means you can meet your needs without turning everyone's world upside down. The blister cards that are produced by the L60 are ready for the traditional secondary check by a pharmacist in your pharmacy; no rubber banding or boxing and labeling again! The L60 is truly a method for extending your staff to reach your short-cycle demands.

DOSIS® L60 is a robotic solution for completely automating prescription filling, sealing, and patient labeling of 30 or 31-Day single medication blister cards (a.k.a. bingo-cards) in a physically compact enclosure. This solution offers unbounded value to pharmacies in need of higher prescription throughput without extra staffing. DOSIS is the most cost effective automated prescription packaging of blister cards in the market. Blister cards, which typically hold a single medication 30-day supply, are preferred for use in Long Term Care facilities due to their ease of handling, inspecting, and administering to patients. DOSIS has the capacity to run continuously for up to four hours unattended before restocking empty blisters.

Don't let the competition fool you.

Dispensing seven pills into a 30/31 day blister card is not wasteful. Maintaining the same format makes everyone's lives simpler. Blister card cost has proven over the last few decades to be the most cost effective solution to deliver medications in the LTC marketplace. After all, can you glance at a roll or a box of unit dose pouches and validate that the correct medication is in each pouch and the count is correct? The manufacturers of the blister cards have optimized their business to be the most cost effective on the 30/31 day blister card production. Even going to a seven or a 14 day card will not reduce the cost of the 30/31 day blister card cost by half! So the best thing to do is to continue utilizing your existing material and just increasing your volumes for purchasing additional 30/31 day blister card materials.

Short Cycle Dispensing Solutions

CMS Releases Part D Proposal for LTC Short Cycle Dispensing 2010:
CMS released its proposal for short cycle dispensing of prescription drugs in long term care facilities.

  • All pharmacies serving long term care facilities have to dispense brand name drugs in no greater than 7-day increments; exceptions are drugs that are difficult to dispense in 7 day increments, such as drops, sprays, etc, as well as that are dispensed for acute illness such as 14 day antibiotics.
  • Part D plans must collect information on the dispensing method used for each dispensing event and on the nature and quantity of any unused drugs returned to the pharmacy. Part D plans must allow for pharmacy to receive credit for unused returned drugs where permitted.
  • CMS revises it definition of Part D dispensing fee as follows: "Dispensing fees should take into consideration the number of dispensing events in a billing cycle, the incremental costs associated with the type of dispensing methodology, and with respect to Part D drugs dispensed in LTC facilities, the techniques to minimize the dispensing of unused drugs. Dispensing fees may also take into account restocking fees associated with return for credit and reuse in long-term care pharmacies, when return for credit and reuse is permitted under the state in law and is allowed under the contract between the Part D sponsor and the pharmacy." However, there are no requirements on Part D plans to pay additional dispensing fees to account for the increased frequency of long term care dispensing.
  • The proposed rule allows some exceptions for "independent community pharmacies", who can dispense up to 14 day supply through December 2012 if the independent serves one or more facilities with fewer than 80 beds, and primarily serves LTC facilities in rural areas.

TALYST
Talyst Supports Short-Cycle Dispensing Alternatives at ASCP and NCPDP Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 7, 2010 - ASCP/NCPDP Industry Meeting - Representatives from Bellevue, Wash.-based Talyst Inc., the leader in pharmacy automation systems, are participating in discussions hosted by the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) and National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) on best practices for complying with impending federal rules for reducing medication waste in long-term care settings. Talyst supports long-term care facilities and pharmacies nationwide with its InSiteRx™ Remote Dispensing System. It is the first medication management system designed to meet the unique challenges of long-term care, enabling timely, pharmacist-approved, on-demand medication dispensing right at the facility. It is expected that new rules issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will require alternative dispensing methods to reduce medication waste in long-term care, a move that is projected to save $6 billion in healthcare costs over the next 10 years. The rules are scheduled to take effect January 1, 2012.
