Bloomsdale Pharmacy is in ‘sync’ with patients
Approximately 69 million Americans take three or more prescriptions per month, requiring multiple trips to the pharmacy. Many consumers say they miss doses of their medication because they forget to refill their prescription before they run out.
Bloomsdale Pharmacy’s medication synchronization program aims to curb missed or skipped doses of medication.
“Med sync allows you to pick up all of your ongoing prescription refills at the pharmacy on a single, convenient day each month, relieving worries of missed refills or running out of your medications” explained Jessica Toebben, Director of the Bloomsdale Pharmacy (pictured at right). “We work closely with providers at the Bloomsdale Medical Centre and Ste. Genevieve County Memorial Hospital, so keeping us aware of any changes to your medications resulting from doctor or hospital visits is important in maintaining optimal results from your prescriptions.
Med Sync works especially well with chronic illness or the elderly, as well as caregivers or family members responsible for helping them manage their prescription refills, according to Toebben. Missed or skipped doses of medication cause 125,000 deaths every year and account for 10 to 25 percent of hospital and nursing home admissions.
“Synchronization is more than just a convenience; it’s an important step to ensure our customers take their recommended medications on time, every time,” Toebben said. “As your hometown pharmacy, we take pride in building relationships with our patients.”
The Bloomsdale Pharmacy, since opening in 2012, has continued to add services and conveniences to their customers.
“We try to offer a range of services to improve people’s health beyond the safe dispensing of medicines,” she said. “In addition to our Med Sync program, we’ve added mobile apps for prescription renewals, text notifications, prescription transfers, medication management, Medicare Part D assistance, to name just a few. “We invite our customers to review with us other pharmacy-provided health services any time and visit our website (bloomsdalerx.com) for extensive health-related information.”
The Bloomsdale Pharmacy and its convenient drive-thru service is open seven days a week. For more information, call 573-483-2626.
