Improving Patient Health Through Adherence
McBain Family Pharmacy is an independent pharmacy owned by Clayton Gilde, RPh. In business since 2013, the pharmacy has two locations in the rural farming community of McBain, Michigan. Patients must often drive long distances to get to the pharmacy or have their prescriptions delivered to them.
The pharmacy’s typical patient is an older adult who might need extra help taking multiple medications. According to Gilde, one of the reasons that patients choose McBain Family Pharmacy is because they can get all their prescriptions filled at one time and packaged in easy to use adherence pouches.
McBain attributes its success to the staff’s close community ties as well as their ability to meet patient needs by providing services that competitors don’t offer, such as adherence packaging and delivery services.
