Delivering medication by postal or shipping service is convenient for your patients – but there are some risks, since even brief exposure to extreme temperatures can impact efficacy.
This NBC News investigation takes a deeper look at this issue.
The investigation notes, for instance, that including time-temperature indicators like the TransTracker® in shipments can provide patients with added peace-of-mind while reducing the need to replace medications that may still be viable. Daniel Kus, B.S. Pharm., RPh, VP of Ambulatory Services for Pharmacy Advantage – who has been using TransTracker for more than 5 years – agrees. “Patients want to know someone is looking out for their best interest. Using the TransTracker temperature device just shows our customers that we are committed to their overall health and safety because we are listening to what they are saying and paying close attention to the important details.”
