PharmaSmart International, a specialist in blood pressure kiosks, announced that its machines meet new Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
The guide states that pharmacies and the kiosk machines they use should have software that directly transfers results to the pharmacist for quick, team-based care. PharamSmart is the only company at this point to use such technology. The guide also states that kiosks are to be clinically validated before use.
“In this guide, the CDC encourages pharmacists to assert their role in team care and intervene in cases where blood pressure is uncontrolled. This is great news for pharmacists,” Josh Sarkis, general manager and senior VP of strategic business development at PharmaSmart, said. “We are happy to see thse leading health care organizations promote the inclusion of trustworthy, proven and integrated blood pressure kiosks in the pharmacist’s patient care process.”
