Typically we would be gearing up for our annual Block Party with festivities and games you all have come to know and love with this event but your safety is more important to us.

Monthly Technology First Feature
New CVS Pharmacy App Feature Can Read Prescription Labels Out Loud for Visually Impaired
 
CVS introduced Spoken Rx™, a new feature of the CVS Pharmacy app that can read important prescription information out loud. It is vitally important for patient safety and adherence that prescription labels are clear and visible, but for patients with visual impairments or those who can’t read standard print labels, that’s not always the case. By the end of 2020, 1,500 CVS Pharmacy locations will be equipped to affix special RFID labels to prescription vials. When the RFID labels are scanned by Spoken Rx in the CVS Pharmacy app, which can be accessed by users using Siri or Google Assistant on their phones, prescription label information will be spoken out loud, such as patient name, medication name, dosage and directions, in either English or Spanish to ensure patients are taking the correct prescriptions, as prescribed.
