ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, March 5, 2019 – CampDoc, the leading electronic health record system for camps, announced the launch of CampEpi, a new program offering discounted epinephrine auto-injector pricing for camps.
According to research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 25% of children have their first allergic reaction at school or while participating in out-of-school activities, such as camp. Many states legislatures have passed legislation that will allow camps to obtain and administer stock epinephrine auto-injectors.
“Not all children at risk for anaphylaxis have received an epinephrine prescription or always carry their auto-injectors with them,” said Dr. Michael Ambrose, Owner and Director of CampDoc. “Epinephrine is the only first-line therapy for anaphylaxis, and we’re excited to continue our mission of improving the health and safety of camp by helping camps get access to this life saving medication.”
With childhood allergies on the rise, the American Camp Association also advocates for schools, camps, and other youth serving programs to have access to these life-saving auto-injectors. Brand name epinephrine auto-injectors can be very expensive and have limited camps from getting access in the past.
CampDoc is the most comprehensive solution to help ensure the health and safety of children while they’re away at camp, and launched their discounted medical supply service in 2017. In addition to providing an easy and cost-effective solution for camps to order everything from over-the-counter medications, bandaids and thermometers, to crutches, stethoscopes, and AEDs, camps can now purchase stock epinephrine auto-injectors at discounted pricing without having to buy in bulk.
