Founded in 2003 by Dr. Armando Bardisa, South Miami Pharmacy (SMP) aims to improve the quality of life for its customers and patients through personalized service.
To provide this individual service, SMP offers hard-to-find medications, compounding services, one-on-one fertility specialists, and medication therapy management for specialty pharmacy patients.
Serving patients in most of the 50 US states and many international countries, South Miami Pharmacy rebranded itself as SMP Pharmacy Solutions in 2015 to better reflect its global services. The company ships approximately 10,000 prescriptions each month from two Miami facilities and safe shipment of temperature-sensitive products is particularly critical to their focus on patient care and quality.
Fertility treatments are also a large segment of SMP’s business and most of these medications require refrigeration. Acknowledging that this is a highly sensitive and emotionally invested treatment for the patients they serve, product integrity is critically important to SMP.
Vice-president of SMP Pharmacy Solutions Brian Brito said: “Particularly during the summer months, we would receive calls from our patients stating that the ice packs were melted and they were not sure if the medications were still effective and safe to use.
Plus, we also needed to implement this cold chain procedure for our specialty pharmacy accreditation and state requirements.”
