PALMETTO, FL — En-Vision America recently partnered with a Midwest grocery chain to offer talking prescription labels in 26 languages for visually- and print-impaired patients.
The labels will be available at more than 275 Hy-Vee Inc. Pharmacy locations. Additionally, the labels will be provided for free to Hy-Vee Pharmacy patients, according to a statement.
En-Vision America President David Raistrick came up with the product idea for his uncles, who were both diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, which can affect a person's eyesight later in life. Being around that, Raistrick always sought ways to improve vision or ways to make life easier for those with impairments. While the company got its start in 1996, ScripTalk wasn’t invented until 2003. It’s an electronic label that pharmacies can put on the prescription. It can read off a customer’s name, the drug name and instructions for how to use it. The company is located in Palmetto, in north Manatee County.
