According to Louis Micolucci, President of Boothwyn Pharmacy, "We are excited to add the Med-ePhone and Med-eMonitor products to Boothwyn's ongoing services to improve medication adherence for senior citizens in independent living centers, women with high risk pregnancies monitored through pharmaceutical company programs, and managed care patients.

We intend to distribute Med-ePhone and Med-eMonitor to our existing institutional customers and consumers, and then use these products along with other services we provide to expand our customer base. As a pharmacy that has pioneered methods to improve the care of our consumer customers and our institutional clients, we look forward to advancing this important tradition through our partnership with InforMedix."
