Walmart, Sam’s Club offer audible prescription labels in U.S.

Bentonville, Ark – Walmart and Sam’s Club pharmacies recently announced a move to help customers who are blind or have low vision through En-Vision America’s ScriptTalk audible prescription labels which are available at nearly 1,200 pharmacies across the United States.

Walmart said it is adding up to 25 pharmacies with the capability each month, with 750 pharmacies added in the past three years.

“The ScripTalk system is important to providing convenient and safe healthcare for our customers,” said JoAnn Stevens, Senior Director of Health & Wellness Compliance at Walmart.

The ScripTalk labeling system, the industry leader in audible prescription labels, was developed by En-Vision America. To provide ScripTalk labels to their patients, the pharmacy places a RFID label on the bottom of a patient’s prescription bottle. The patient then places the bottle on a small, battery operated device called a ScripTalk Station, which is provided at no charge to the patient. The ScripTalk Station reads the prescription information out loud to the patient, including patient name, prescription number, drug name, dosage, use instructions, warnings, educational leaflets, and pharmacy information.

“We already have almost 1,200 Walmart stores and Sam’s Clubs offering the ScripTalk system,” says Amanda Tolson, a director of En-Vision America, maker of the ScripTalk system.
