Jones Healthcare Launches Sustainable FlexRx™ One Blister Pack, Designed for Automation
New Unit-Dose Adherence Package Accelerates Prescription Preparation, First to Use Eco-Friendly Bio-PET Material
The FlexRx™ One by Jones Healthcare Group is now available to pharmacies looking for a more sustainable blister pack, which also works seamlessly with automated filling technology.
“Sealing adherence packs has to be just as quick as filling them with meds using automated robots. Otherwise, pharmacies and centralized fulfillment centres will see bottlenecks in their operations,” notes Trevor Noye, Senior Vice President – Medication Adherence. “Working with our clients in their pharmacies, we found ways to reduce time and motion to seal this packaging, while ensuring the process is easy and repeatable. The FlexRx One takes half the time to seal compared to other solutions.”
The new unit-dose adherence package is ideal for retail, specialty and long-term care pharmacies using centralized fulfillment or automation in-house. These packs also work well for pharmacies preparing prescriptions by hand, since the speed and quality of sealing remains the same regardless of filling method.
“The FlexRx One takes half the time to seal compared to other solutions.”
Part of a range of new sustainable adherence packaging exclusive to Jones Healthcare, the FlexRx One is made with Bio-PET. This bioplastic is manufactured from renewable resources, is free of any chemicals of concern, and is also readily recyclable across most households in North America. The FlexRx One is the first and only unit-dose solution available with this more environmentally friendly Bio-PET construction.

Pharmacies using the FlexRx One can take advantage of many additional benefits:
- Less material used – No additional labels need to be applied to the FlexRx One. All patient information can be printed directly on the package.
- Patient accessibility – Medication cavities have perforated backings, so it’s easier for patients to push through the backing and access their medications compared to non-perforated backings.
- Customization – Pharmacies can print their brand messaging in a large space on the package to build recognition and awareness with their patient base. This feature not typically available for unit-dose adherence packaging.
