    MediMate DAA Packing Service

    What is MediMate all about?

    MediMate is the new DAA (Dose Administration Aid). Dose Administration Aids are medicine packaging systems designed to reduce unintentional non-adherence by simplifying the management of oral medicines. Such administration will aid in improving your medication adherence and thus health outcomes and quality of life.

    MediMate is the Priceline-branded term for a dose administration aid (DAA). Typically, DAA is done in a blister packet like to allow patients or to anyone you’re looking after to take their mediciation at the right time.

     One great thing about the MediMate service is it actually comes in a sachet form as well, which we tend to prefer. The sachet is very handy in size and has all the details printed on there. If you’re taking a couple of medications, you can actually tear your dose off for the day and put it in your pocket you can actually travel with it

    Any individual is able to use MediMate DAA Packing Service at Priceline Pharmacy West Brunswick.

    The Importance of MediMate DAA Packing Service

    Here are the reasons why it is time to get DAA packing service for yourself.

    1. Your medication is precisely packed

    2. The sachet is laser scanned for accuracy

    3. It saves your time sorting your medicines

    4. You can have your meds delivered at your door or made ready for collection

    5. It is very portable and handy

    6. It is easy to take with you wherever you go.


    Sachet packing is faster, cheaper and more accurate than
    blister packing, and is now the global standard for driving
    medication packing growth.

    Whilst some existing DAA patients are change resistant and welded to a blister pack, new patients are much more amenable to sachet packs. It is the electronic scan checking of sachet packs that provides an extremely low error rate of 1 in 10,000. The error rate for manual blister packing in a pharmacy is reputedly as high as 1 in 10 if ‘jumped tablets’ are
    included.

    In Sachet or In Blister Pack?

    We can organise your medications either in a sachet or in a blister pack. There’s a common misconception that if you’re using one of these dose administration aid systems that you need to be taking lots and lots of medicines, or you need to be elderly. We, in fact, encourage everybody to use one of these, even if you’re not an elder yet, and you’re taking multiple regimes of supplementation, like natural medicines.

    Come in and speak to us because we can make it easy for you to pack when you take your supplements and at different times. We make it so convenient for you so you won’t miss a single pill.
