Blister Card Packaging

Pharmaceutical blister packaging is an alternative for adherence packaging in retail, while remaining prominent in LTC, hospitals and senior living communities.

1 in 4 adults have two or more chronic health conditions that require strict adherence to medication regimens according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Approximately 187 million Americans take one or more prescription drugs, and when adding the factor that 3 out of 4 patients do not follow their doctor’s orders, healthcare costs average  $105B due to medication non-compliance. According to results from the American Pharmacists Association Conference (APhA) in 2014, when using multi-med blister cards, patient medication adherence increases from 7% to 93%.

TCGRx now proudly offers SmartCardRx - a new blister-filling solution that utilizes barcode and LED technology, revolutionizing the way technicians fill blister cards. By using barcode scanning during each step of the process, it makes filling safer for both the pharmacy as well as the patients receiving the prescriptions. TCGRx also offers a unique variety of blister card solutions that fit the needs of long-term care pharmacies, retail pharmacies, specialty pharmacies and VA pharmacies. Our blister product line provides multi-medication and unit dose cards with blisters in a variety of sizes to fit the unique needs of each script-filling pharmacy. We provide cards in 28-, 30-, 31-, 32-day doses as well as weekly cards with multiple pass times.
