CSUN Accessible Prescriptions Session

Here’s a CSUN Session you won’t want to miss!  David Raistrick from En-Vision America will present a talk on prescription accessibility at CSUN’s 29th Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference in San Diego.
  • Title: ScripAbility: Implementing the ADA & FDA Safety & Innovations Act
  • Date: Friday, March 21, 2014
  • Time: 4:20 PM
  • Location: Old Town B
Synopsis:  In 2010, the Department of Justice amended language in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Pharmacies are expressly named under the act and are obligated to provide auxiliary aids and services where necessary to ensure effective communication to individuals with disabilities.  In addition, the recent FDA Safety and Innovations Act directs the National Council on Disability to undertake an awareness campaign to inform the public (and pharmacies) of recent U.S. Access Board’s “best practices”.  We’ll provide review of  these best practices and how ScripAbility technology is helping pharmacists help their patients. More than 100 independent and chain pharmacies are already offering varying components of this system, benefiting all participants. As more pharmacies are learning how to implement federal laws into their services, there is an increase in individuals who are now able to access prescription label information. ScripAbility facilitates pharmacies to comply with ADA statutes, and assists the blind in finding safe, private and independent management of their medications.
