VA Selects ScripTalk for Its Nationwide Audible Prescriptions Program

Normal, IL (September 7, 2004) – En-Vision America, Inc., has been awarded a national contract for it’s ScripTalk Audible Prescription system by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. The Blanket Purchase Order (BPA) contract, in conjunction with a recent VA Directive, calls for nationwide implementation of the ScripTalk service inside all VA outpatient pharmacies over the next 12 months.

The ScripTalk System includes a tiny, RFID-based microchip embedded in the prescription label that is printed and programmed by a VA’s outpatient pharmacy (VistA) computer system. At home, the veteran uses a handheld ScripTalk Reader that reads the information stored on the microchip and speaks the label information to the patient.

“After a long evaluation period of this and other technologies available, the VA selected ScripTalk because it is cost effective and easy for the pharmacy to deliver,” said David Raistrick, VP of En-Vision America. “We hope that this device will give vision impaired and elderly veterans the ability to stay safely independent for at least an additional 5 to 10 years.”

The company is also moving forward on plans to move the system into the retail pharmacy sector.
