Synergy Medical

For almost 10 years, Synergy Medical has been providing proven and reliable technology for blister card automation, and we consistently meet and exceed our customer’s expectations for performance and support.

SynMed is an automated dispensing system for solid oral medications in blister packs; an automated alternative to vials and pouches, that features more than 400 dispensing containers, barcode verification processes and user-friendly software. SynMed is a way to reduce costs, achieve high levels of dispensing accuracy, and a safe way to grow your business.

Efficiency & Cost Savings

SynMed’s 400 containers contain 98% of the medications a pharmacy would dispense in blister packs, so this is a highly automated process.

SynMed will pick and dispense 55 doses per minute; one technician can easily produce 1,000+ multi-dose blister packs over their regular weekly schedule.

Technician time compared to manual production will be reduced by a factor of 5, and Pharmacist verification time will at least be reduced in half, due to the system accuracy, and proprietary verification markers on the label.

Flexibility

SynMed is versatile and can adapt and interchange between both single and multi-dose blister packs. SynMed is compatible with over 30 (and growing) blister packs so will easily adapt to each unique environment; that means pharmacies can automate with the blister card their patients are used to receiving.

Safely Grow Your Business

SynMed is both a Medication Synchronization and Medication Adherence strategy to drive 5 star ratings, achieve high rates of reimbursement, and attract new patients.

Further, the unique SynMed generated compliance label features both patient pictures and medication images; this enables pharmacies to market this output to Community Patients, Assisted Living, Retirement Homes, and LTC facilities, all of whom highly value these label features.

In summary, SynMed’s flexibility with single and multi-dose card formats, 400+ containers, high production rate, and unique compliance label with patient picture and drug images, are all unique differentiators vs. other blister automation technologies.

Medication Adherence & Patient Drug Compliance

What are adherence and compliance?

Adherence and compliance describe the degree to which a patient correctly follows medical advice. These are the next largest issues in pharmacy after patient safety. Adherence refers to the patient filling and refilling medications on time, while compliance refers to the patient taking their medications on-time and as prescribed. Adherence and compliance are applied to other situations in healthcare such as medical device use, self-care, self-directed exercises, or therapy sessions. Both the patient and the health-care provider affect adherence, and a positive physician-patient relationship is the most important factor in improving adherence and compliance.

Why are patients nonadherent and noncompliant?

Patients are non-adherent and non-compliant for a number of different factors including:
*Socioeconomic factors
*Forgetfulness
*Treatment anxiety
*Misunderstanding the physician/pharmacist
*Length or complexity of treatment
*Unwanted side effects
*Disability
*They begin to "feel better"

There are many companies providing various solutions to solve non-adherence and non-compliance.

What does poor medication adherence and compliance lead to?

Poor medication adherence and compliance increases the amount of unnecessary complications due to:
*Disease progression
*Reduced quality of life
*Reduced functional ability
*Increased healthcare costs

How are medication adherence and compliance different?

Medication adherence refers to a patient filling and refilling their medications in a timely fashion. Medication compliance refers to a patient taking their medications on time and as prescribed, for the full length of time. Oftentimes, the two terms are used interchangeably.

Why are adherence and compliance important to patients?

Medications do not work if patients do not take them. Adherence and compliance to medication regimens are essential for patients to improve their health. Their medication therapies will not work if they are not followed as prescribed and for the full length of time. Medication adherence/compliance is highest when the drug treatment is short-term, has predictable symptoms that improve with the medication, has minimal side effects, and is taken once per day. Unfortunately, non-adherence and poor compliance are serious drug problems in the United States and lead to complications, hospitalizations, and death.

How can a patient improve his/her adherence and compliance?

The patient should form strong relationships with their physician and their pharmacist, find a motivator to increase adherence/compliance, use one pharmacy for their medications, become knowledgeable about their condition, and have access to affordable drug regimens. This will provide patients with the best optimal health outcomes and increase their adherence and compliance.

Strong Healthcare Provider-Patient Relationship Improves Patient Adherence and Lowers Healthcare Co
Healthcare outcomes on an outpatient basis are influenced by patient adherence. The likelihood of adherence is dictated by the nature of the patient--practitioner relationship. Factors such as trust and strength of relationship are primary gauges of the relationship and thus, predictors of adherence. Further, non-adherence has been linked to increased healthcare costs. These concepts have been extensively described in clinical studies. It is the object of this study, then, to evaluate the correlation between patient-practitioner relationship and adherence and subsequently how that impacts various healthcare costs.
