Also known as strip packaging, adherence packaging and compliance packaging, pouch packaging is used in long-term care, hospital inpatient and outpatient, retail chain, independent retail, specialty, and nutraceutical markets. It simplifies medication regimens by taking the guesswork out of the directions. Each pouch contains information such as strength, quantity, dosage and prescribing doctor, as well as icons and barcodes to help patients identify the appropriate time to take their meds. Pouch packaging is a great supplement to any adherence program, as it can be customized to help the patient maintain compliance. TCGRx offers the ATP® 2 Automated Tablet Packager, which dispenses medications into pouches to be separated by the pharmacy as needed.
