VUCA Health’s MedsOnCue Named a Cardinal Health 2014 Best Practice
LAKE MARY, Fla. – (August 26, 2014) – VUCA Health announced today that Cardinal Health has named its MedsOnCue as one of its Best Retail Pharmacy Practices in its 2014 Best Practice Guide, as demonstrated by its use in Hobbs Pharmacy. Hobbs noted in the guide that it has received great feedback from the program, especially from mothers learning about antibiotics for their children.
One of the highlighted MedsOnCue features is the ability for patients to receive text reminders for doses and refills, helping improve adherence. Utilizing Quick Response (QR) codes printed on prescription labels, SMS text messaging and email, MedsOnCue engages and educates patients by linking them directly to thousands of medication-specific videos in the MedsOnCue library.
“In being named a best practice technology, coupled with national media coverage and partnering with leading-edge companies like QS/1, we are able to promote mobile technology that creates a powerful platform from which pharmacies can deliver meaningful patient education that overcomes the barriers to medication adherence,” said VUCA Health CEO David Medvedeff, PharmD, MBA.
MedsOnCue and VUCA’s technology have also recently received attention from Asbury Park Press, which illustrates the impact that technology is having on pharmacies and the way they deliver medication information to patients and caregivers.
MedsOnCue provides a robust library of thousands of prescription-specific video briefings that deliver information on top-prescribed medications, including proper usage, expected benefits and potential side effects. Available in English and Spanish, videos can also be integrated into individual pharmacy websites.
The MedsOnCue solution also includes three customizable services designed to reinforce patient relationships and cultivate pharmacy loyalty: Connect Me, providing “click-to-call” access to client-designated pharmacies or call centers; Remind Me for streamlined registration with a medication alert and reminder program; and Inform Me, providing on-demand access to additional prescription information and health or wellness resources.
