Medication management systems

One of the top reasons patients are re-admitted to the hospital is the improper taking of medication. With a medication management system from Via Christi, you can eliminate missed medications and the chance of taking the wrong dose.

Our systems are programmed and filled according to your physician-ordered medication dosage schedule. At the scheduled times, themedication dispenser distributes single or multiple medications. The systems:

  • Can be filled by you, your caregiver or your nurse, if needed
  • Can be monitored by our call center to alert an appointed contact person if a dosage is missed
  • Come in either single or multi-month systems
