Community Pharmacy Practice Resident
Elisha comments: “A true Iowa City native through and through. I am a 2016 graduate of the University of Iowa, College of Pharmacy and the Current PGY-1 Community Resident. My practice site is at the Hy-Vee DrugStore Pharmacy in Iowa City, IA where I spend my time in direct patient care activities such as travel clinic, enhanced patient counseling, smoking cessation and diabetes education, MTM, and immunizations. Community pharmacy has been a passion of mine since I was first exposed as a technician nearly 8 years ago. I thrive on direct patient education and building trusting patient-provider relationships. Outside of pharmacy, I enjoy exploring new restaurants with family and friends, as well as spending time with my dog, Samson.”

Pharmacy Podcast co-host and President of GRX Marketing interviews pharmacy owner Eric Pusey, R.Ph., CDE, with Medicap Pharmacy in Olyphant, Pennsylvania and current president of the Pennsylvania Pharmacist Association.
What is compliance packaging? Pharmacies across the nation now have another option to offer their medication management patients with medication compliance packaging, whereby a patient’s medications are blister-packed into cards or another packaged system organized by time-of-day and day-of-week.
The pharmacy staff organizes all the medications for your a patient's convenience. A multi-dose packaging system makes everything simpler for patients. Sorted and packaged by a staff member or pharmacist, each dose is personalized for that specific patient and they’re clearly labeled by date and time of day, giving the patient comfort of knowing they took the right medication at the right time. No more guesswork, and no more bottles or pillboxes.
For more information on marketing Compliance Packaging to your patients contact GRX Marketing: http://www.grxmarketing.com/grx-news.html
Today's guest was Mr. Eric Pusey, R.Ph., CDE
