iA, a company that provides an integrated pharmacy fulfillment platform for retail, health system and government pharmacies, has reached an agreement with Euclid Medical Products, a provider of high-quality, efficient multi/unit dose automated packaging and barcoding systems.
This partnership will result in the integration of Euclid’s Axial Adherence Packaging Technology into iA’s NEXiA Enterprise Software Suite, expanding the capabilities of iA’s centralized fulfillment solutions. As a leader in pharmacy fulfillment, leveraging cutting-edge software and advanced robotics, iA is dedicated to building solutions that support a more sustainable work environment for pharmacy providers, which can ultimately advance the pharmacist’s role in health care.
“We’re excited to embark on this collaborative partnership with Euclid. Our two companies share a vision of improving healthcare outcomes through robust solutions. This partnership shows our dedication to further elevate our capacity to provide solutions for our valued pharmacy partners," said Marvin Richardson, CEO of iA.
Richardson added, "We understand the importance of providing solutions that will allow the ability to meet the increasing expectations of patients who seek choice and convenience in their healthcare experiences. Together with Euclid, iA empowers pharmacy providers to reap the benefits achieved through centralized fulfillment with the patient and pharmacy operation top of mind."
As a result of this strategic collaboration, iA will be a distributor of Euclid’s Adherence Packaging Technology, enhancing the dispensing capabilities available within iA’s Pharmacy Fulfillment Platform. Adherence packaging built into centralized fulfillment solutions can offer significant value-add by enhancing medication safety, adherence, efficiency and workflow. This partnership allows iA to extend its reach and deepen its collaborative efforts across pharmacy settings, encompassing community, health system, retail, specialty and federal pharmacies.
“The Euclid adherence packaging solution provides prescription filling and dispensing into patient specific multi-dose packets. Adding our technology to a centralized fulfillment solution in partnership with iA will empower pharmacy providers to continue to meet the increasing demands of patients across any pharmacy environment, including retail and specialty pharmacies,” said Kevin Copsey, business unit director at Euclid Medical Products.
“At iA we pride ourselves in being able to provide more options, which allow our customers to enhance their offerings, including adherence packaging, through iA’s Pharmacy Fulfillment Platform,” said Thomas Utech, president, chief operating officer at iA. “Our partnership with Euclid enables iA to provide a patient’s medications all in one pack and all in one place from a central fill location, freeing up pharmacists time to collaborate with patients.”
