2016 HCPC Compliance Package of the Year: Merck Zepatier Medication Package from WestRock

The Zepatier Medication Package presents a two-week dosing regimen with a calendared blister labeled by day on each individual pill cavity. (Two two-week packages make up a monthly supply of Zepatier.) A 5/6th panel provides space for medication information, dosing instructions, and details on how to navigate the calendar, reports HCPC.

“WestRock and Merck partnered to design the Zepatier package to help HCV patients adhere to their medication,” states John Grinnell, VP, Sales, Health, Beauty, & Adherence, WestRock, in the news release issued by HCPC. “Packaging is the one tool that stays with the patient throughout the medication journey, making it uniquely effective in providing regimen support.”

One judge stated that the package has a “very clearly explained regimen with an easy-to-read font type and size. The red color is used appropriately to emphasize important instructions. With clearly stated details printed on the inside of the fold-open package and arrows guiding the patient through each daily dose, the package encourages compliance by keeping the regimen as simple as possible.”
