Sam Alexander Health Mart Now Provides optaPHONIC Audio Label

SAM ALEXANDER HEALTH MART PHARMACY TO PROVIDE AUDIO LABEL OPTION FOR MEDICATION

Arkansas-based Pharmacy to Host Local Customer Trial of the optaPHONIC™ Audio Label

 

NORMANDY PARK, Wash. (June 14, 2016) – AccessaMED™ is pleased to announce that Sam Alexander Pharmacy, a Health Mart affiliate, has begun a pilot with AccessaMED™. As part, Sam Alexander will offer the optaPHONIC™ Audio Label to those who wish to have their prescription label information provided in an audio format, not just the standard printed label that is provided on all medication. As part of this offering, new and existing Sam Alexander customers who are blind, low vision or have difficultly reading the print label will be eligible to receive prescription and over-the-counter medications with the optaPHONIC™ Audio Label at little to no cost.

The optaPHONIC™ Audio Label is two inches tall by one inch wide and attaches to all medication containers. With a push of its button, it provides an audio description of the medication prescription details, including patient name, medication details and warnings/instructions. This information is programmed by the pharmacist at the time the prescription is filled, ready for the customer upon pickup. The optaPHONIC™ Audio Label does not require expensive or complicated reading systems for customer.

“We are excited to collaborate with Sam Alexander during this trial for its visually impaired customers,” said Carly Langdon, Executive Vice President of AccessaMED™. “For the blind, low vision and senior communities, taking prescription medication can often be an unnerving and unsafe situation. We find it commendable that Sam Alexander recognizes this and is proactively finding the right solution for its customers.”

Sam Alexander Pharmacy is located at 127 N Main Street, Harrison, Arkansas 72601. Sam Alexander will have this assistive technology product available for trial until September 15, 2016.
