New Service Announced

FRUITLAND – Apple Discount Drugs, a locally owned Health Mart pharmacy, now provides a new service that is bringing advanced blood pressure technology to the Lower Shore.

The PharmaSmart Blood Pressure Monitor, now available in the Fruitland location, is equipped with software that can record, track, graph and share blood pressure readings over an extended period of time.

The PharmaSmart blood pressure kiosk utilizes smart card technology to track and retain patient readings over time while providing printed reports with averages. Utilizing wireless technology, the device can upload data to an on-line tracker web application, which allows pharmacy/patient and even physician access from any computer.

“We are excited to share this cutting edge technology with anyone who walks into our store,” said Jeff Sherr, president of Apple Discount Drugs. “It allows patients to track their blood pressure readings and easily share them with their physician. Ultimately, this will help people better manage, control and lower their blood pressure.”

The online program also provides an outlet for patients to record and keep track of their glucose levels, weight and body mass index (BMI).
