Why offer a Medico Pak service in your pharmacy?

Often, the most accessible healthcare provider is the local pharmacy. Pharmacists will play an increasing role in assisting customers to manage their health care needs.

In Australia today, it is estimated that consumers miss up to 25 percent of their prescribed medication doses. Numerous studies conducted both in Australia and overseas have shown that pharmacist intervention can lead to better patient medication compliance.

An effective DAA strategy includes programs to drive DAA growth with staff and customers alike combined with high quality consumables. Medico Pak from Amneal provides pharmacies and customers with an effective, inexpensive medication management tool.

No matter the quantity of DAA packs your pharmacy prepares, Amneal is the only Australian generic company to have a complete in-house DAA solution to drive growth. Our solution comprises two exceptional core programs; our DAA Growth Program drives workflow efficiencies through support tools and staff training, while our Patient Engagement Program directs potential customers to your pharmacy through a combination of marketing and professional service initiatives.
