Diplomat hosts a ‘Keep Kids Safe and Healthy’ event

BY Michael Johnsen

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Diplomat on Saturday hosted a ‘Keep Kids Safe and Healthy’ event at the specialty pharmacy's retail store.
 
The event helped promote Diplomat’s new children’s vitamin program. Parents or guardians of children ages 2 to 6 years were able to sign up to participate in the initiative and will be able to pick up a free bottle of children’s vitamins, once per month at Diplomat’s Grand Rapids location.
 
In addition to signing up for the vitamin program, representatives from the Michigan State Police were on hand to speak about children’s safety and make free EZ Child ID kits available. The EZ Child ID software records a child’s fingerprints, photo and voice. In the event that a child goes missing, this ID information can be vital to assisting law enforcement personnel in their recovery efforts.
 
Children were also able to take photos with a fire truck from the Grand Rapids Fire Department and talk to representatives about fire safety.

Kinney Drugs launches EZSync pharmacy program

BY Antoinette Alexander

GOUVERNEUR, N.Y. — In an effort to battle medication non-adherence, regional player Kinney Drugs has unveiled its new EZSync program to synchronize pickup dates and prescription refills.

“Compliance is supported by convenience, and it’s easy for people to be noncompliant when their prescriptions are on different schedules and individual refills are scattered throughout the month,” stated David Adsit, director of pharmacy services at Kinney Drugs stores. “With EZSync, our pharmacists can help their patients better manage their medications and take them as prescribed by their doctor.”

EZSync is another pharmacy service offered by Kinney Drugs to promote healthier outcomes for their patients. This new service complements existing services like ReadyScripts automatic refills; EZRefill, the mobile, online and phone-in refill service; free prescription delivery; and immunizations for seasonal flu, meningitis and shingles.

In the United States, patients who rely on medication synchronization programs at their community pharmacy are 30% more likely to take their medication as prescribed, according to the National Community Pharmacists Association.
