Dose Administration Aid (DAA) pharmacies, also known as compliance or medication management pharmacies, specialize in providing Dose Administration Aids to patients. DAAs are sealed, tamper-evident packages that allow individual medicine doses to be organised according to the prescribed dose schedule. The primary goal of DAA pharmacies is to improve medication adherence and reduce medication errors. They accomplish this by assisting patients in managing their medication regimen more effectively. DAA pharmacies package medications into organized, compartmentalized containers or blister packs, typically sorted by the day and time of administration. Each individual dose will have a label, making it easier for patients to know which medications to take at specific times.
High Volume, High Speed DAA Preparation
Some pharmacists are embracing the opportunities associated with an aging population and dose administration aids. We helped APHS (now Epic Pharmacy, with DoseAid being their Dose Administration Aid division ) become the first TGA-certified facility for the high volume dispensing of DAAs. Packaged into sachets, the APHS’ dose administration aids are prepared using automated tablet dispensing and packaging systems.
If you are planning a non-pharmacy facility for the automated and computerised dose packing systems required to prepare high volumes of DAAs we can help you get the regulatory approvals you’ll need as well as show you how to reduce costs and improve efficiencies.
It’s likely you’ll need help with:
- Designing and building the facility or fitting out an existing building
- Implementing and optimising a Quality Management System
- Selecting and validating machinery
- Optimising processes to reduce errors and operational costs
- Managing the recurrent costs and continual effort required to remain compliant
- Preparing for a regulatory audits and responding to any findings
- Training staff
- Risk assessment and management
