A corporation committed to ending a crisis
Every day, all across America, prescription medications help people heal, whether they have a short-term illness or a chronic disease. But a sad fact is that medicine, when not used properly, can cause harm. The misuse of medication has become a serious problem around the country, and J M Smith Corporation, in conjunction with the J M Smith Foundation, is committed to helping end this crisis. From our business practices to our philanthropic efforts, we are working to combat medication misuse.
SafeMeds: Tracking and flagging drug diversion
Drug diversion is the practice of transferring legally prescribed medications from the patient for whom it was prescribed to another entity, usually for illegal use or abuse. Drug diversion happens all too often, and is directly related to the increase in prescription drug abuse.
At J M Smith Corporation, we are committed to being part of the solution to prevent drug diversion. From compliance programs to software, from education to policies and guidelines, we hold ourselves and our pharmacy customers to the highest standards. Our comprehensive program, called SafeMeds, includes software to track trends and opioid purchasing, compliance monitoring and educational components.
