Greenwood Village, CO – September 4, 2018. Secure Medication Systems, a company creating a new category in secure cap and closure packaging with its initial award-winning launch of Safe Rx® locking prescription vials (LPVsTM), today announced its selection for two exclusive investor conferences in September.
On September 6, 2018, the Company will present at the Seed Angel Forum in Boulder, CO, alongside four other Colorado startups, and again on September 20 at the Big Idea Connectpreneur Fall Forum in Washington, DC, one of the highest rated early stage investor events on the east coast. The two events follow the Company’s recent selection to present at TiECon Northwest 2018.
Safe Rx® LPVsTM represent the first significant improvement to secure packaging for prescription dispensing since 1970, when the Poison Prevention Packaging Act established child resistant standards. Prescription vial security has lagged the development of highly addictive opioid medications in the intervening period, and today prescription drugs are the number one gateway to heroin, with pilfering – sneaking a few pills at a time in secret – from family medicine cabinets the number one source for teen abuse.
Safe Rx® LPVs™ won the prestigious Product Showcase Award in the pharmacy supplies and equipment category at the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ 2017 Total Store Expo, the largest pharmacy industry trade show in North America, and are sold to pharmacy retailers and major health systems.
