Safecor Health offers a safer, more cost-effective and higher-quality method for drug repackaging. Outsourcing unit-dose drug repackaging can help reduce the burden of packaging in-house and eliminates packaging equipment, packaging materials, and labor costs.
More than cost savings, repackaging with Safecor Health allows pharmacy staff to focus on what truly matters: the patients.
For institutional pharmacies, limited time and resources often prevent pharmacy staff from being able to ensure each order is repackaged into unit-dose following all quality and regulatory standards. It also pulls valuable pharmacy staff from other critical areas of work.
For example, if a pharmacy has a bulk bottle of medication containing 200 doses, a pharmacist must
repackage that bulk bottle into 200 separate doses based on drug formats like:
Unit-dose oral solids
Liquid unit-dose cups
Safecor Health is cGMP, ISMP, ASHP, and USP compliant, registered with the FDA, and licensed with the DEA and all applicable state agencies. We also use stability testing on various packaging formats and drugs as necessary to ensure quality, safety, regulatory compliance, and proper expiration dating. We also track each drug and lot number for every medication that we repackage, so if there is a recall, you’ll be notified immediately.
Our quality processes are the primary reason why hundreds of pharmacies across the United States utilize Safecor Health for their unit-dose drug repackaging.
The hospital orders the medications through their wholesaler on a Bill To/Ship To repackaging account.
Safecor Health repackages the hospital’s order according to their specific needs.
The repackaged medications are shipped from Safecor Health directly to the hospital pharmacy ready to dispense.
At Safecor Health, we understand that each hospital pharmacy we serve is unique. That’s why our repackaging and bar coding formats support most pharmacy systems and scanning hardware. We also help hospitals implement cost savings and patient safety initiatives, including label standardization, bar codes, and product standardization. Our standard labels automatically include Tall Man lettering (using FDA and ISMP lists), and notations for hazardous and light-sensitive medications.
