Pacmed

The PacMed System is ideal for use in assisted-living, long-term care and group homes with multiple patients, where multiple caregivers administer medications. The system consists of a strip of cellophane pouches, containing multi-dose or unit-dose medications, and a Pouch Porter box to store them in.

The PacMed System is also a great travel aid for individual patients: Pharmacare has the ability to customize the packaging of your medications and supplements into daily or multi-day pouches.
