Medication synchronization is creating a lot of buzz these days. Various pharmacists have come up with such programs to help people in many ways. In fact, the programs have several hidden benefits that will be explored in later sections of this article.
Medication synchronization programs are basically intended to help patients with the refill of their medications. The pharmacist coordinates the refill so that the patient or caregiver can pick all the medicines on a single day each month. It helps people who have to miss doses of their regular medications for some reasons like non-availability of medicines at the regular pharmacist. Med sync ensures there’re no missed doses.
What it does?

These are the obvious benefits, but some hidden benefits are not discussed much. Let’s talk about the less obvious benefits of med sync:
Opportunities for Patient Care

They can have sole tasks of patient immunization or other things that become difficult to manage in the lack of experienced staff.
Efficient Deliveries
Home-bound patients often find themselves struggling when it comes to their medication refills. Fortunately, many pharmacists have come up with med sync programs that also offer medicine delivery. Initially, patients with several prescriptions used to have several deliveries each month. Now with the med sync program, they can have just one delivery each month for all of their medication needs. It allows better control on the medication plan while saving the valuable time of the patient as well as the pharmacist.
