CVS Pharmacy is introducing this week its ScriptPath Prescription Label and Prescription Overview in its more than 1,100 locations in California. The prescription label and overview is a component of the ScriptPath Prescription Schedule, which CVS launched last fall. According to the company, the new prescription label features clearer directions, larger text, color-coded icons for different times of day, and clear refill details to make reordering prescriptions easy. "Fifty percent of patients struggle with understanding how and when to take their prescription medications, and for those with complex prescription regimens it can be even more challenging," said Troyen Brennan, CVS Health executive vice president and chief medical officer. "By providing them with a clear and concise dosing schedule on their prescription label and overview, along with an easy-to-understand prescription schedule, we can help improve medication adherence and overall health." Additionally, a tool in the ScriptPath Prescription Management System automatically reviews all of a patient's CVS Pharmacy medications and prescribers' instruction to provide a schedule with the most effective times to take the medications.
