CutisPharma Partners With Rite Aid for Prescription Kits
CutisPharma has signed a partnership with Rite Aid that will make its First unit-of-use prescription compounding kits available for the approximately 27,000 pharmacists and pharmacy technicians at around 5,000 Rite Aid stores nationwide.
Rite Aid will carry CutisPharma's First unit-of-use prescription compounding kits nationwide in all its distribution centers, assuring constant availability.First products are expected to allow Rite Aid the ability to offer compounding service to their customers and, for pharmacies already providing the service, increase the efficiency of their compounding offerings.
CutisPharma's First unit-of-use prescription compounding kits are said to be designed to provide an easy and time- saving solution for pharmacies. The pre-measured, pre- weighed components enable pharmacists to dispense the prescribed dosage accurately every time.
Rite Aid Pharmacies will work with CutisPharma in notifying local physicians about the availability of compounding services at neighborhood Rite Aid stores using First kits.
Indu Muni, chairman and CEO of CutisPharma, said: "Our First unit-of-use prescription compounding kits are user-friendly, save compounding time (by over 70%), and can be compounded by a Rite Aid pharmacist while the patient waits, increasing Rite Aid customer satisfaction and eliminating the need for an extra trip to the pharmacy."
