En-Vision America has announced a new program to aid the blind and visually impaired in obtaining accessible prescriptions. Under their Pharmacy Freedom Program, eligible individuals may obtain a free ScripTalk Station patient reader that will allow them to access their prescription label information.
ScripTalk Station utilizes RFID (radio-frequency identification) and TTS (text-to-speech) technologies to allow those that cannot read their prescription labels a way to access the information. It has been adopted by the Veteran’s Administration for use in their facilities across the country.
Participating pharmacies attach a small label to each prescription that contains all printed information. This provides a safe, private and independent way for the blind and visually impaired to manage their medication regimen, as well as helps pharmacies comply with ADA regulations in serving their patients.
Interested individuals should contact En-Vision America to get their free reader and provide pharmacy details. Pharmacies concerned with meeting the needs of their special needs patients may also contact the company for more information about the program.
