Developed jointly with LTCPCMS, Inc., MWV’s pharmacy innovation partner, the Avive system synchronizes patients’ medications, so all prescriptions are picked up on the same day each month from a single pharmacy. The system also creates a customized regimen specifically for each person, which consolidates dosing times consistent with Universal Medication Schedules and aligns with patients’ current daily habits for ease of integration. Medication dispensing is completed in a central-fill location through a combination of pharmacist oversight and a highly accurate robotic system. It arrives at the local pharmacy ready to dispense, following a final inspection from the pharmacist.Each Avive package features a month’s supply of pre-filled medication packets, labeled with medication names and dosing instructions for the medications inside. The Avive system also includes patient education information with the container. Using this system helps the patient incorporate their medication routines into their daily lifestyle, providing convenience and helping reduce medication errors. Avive is one of five MWV adherence solutions that HCPC has recognized in the last three Compliance Package of the Year Awards. MWV solutions, together with our partners, have won HCPC’s top award three times in the past three years and the second runner up award twice, including this year. This year’s second runner up is the Strattera Physician Sample, packed in MWV’s Dosepak® by AndersonBrecon for Eli Lilly. This is a titration pack that includes a color-coded, calendared dosing format and patient education materials. In further supporting patient compliance, the Strattera design identifies dosing instructions including tips to avoid side effects and identifying optimal daily timing for doses. The pack also directs patients to a supporting website to seek further information and prescription savings. A medication guide is included for the patient in the cover panel of the Dosepak sleeve.
