ScripTalk Talking Prescription Labels
Based on RFID text-to-speech technology, ScripTalk Talking Prescription Labels are designed to help you better serve your patients who are blind, visually impaired or print impaired. By using a smartphone app or a ScripTalk Station Reader, your patients can hear all their vital prescription information read out loud, including:
• Drug Name, Dosage & Instructions
• Warnings & Contraindications
• Pharmacy Information
• Doctor Name
• Prescription Number & Date
You simply place a small electronic tag on their prescriptions, which is easily programmed on Windows Compatible Software and integrated with many pharmacy software programs. If you need a specific language for your patient, let us know. We have several languages available.
How effective is this solution in improving medication safety and independence for your patients? The results of an independent study speak for themselves: Almost all participants (98%) reported feeling safer taking their medications since using ScripTalk.
In 2012, the FDA Safety and Innovation Act provided a list of best practices for pharmacies to implement to ensure that patients would have a safe, private, independent, reliable and consistent access to prescription label information. ScriptAbility’s prescription labeling system helps you meet all of those needs.
