The RxSafe 900 is READY. Are you?
The RxSafe 900 is so Much More Than a Vial Filling Robot
RxSafe’s Data Rich Interchange
Technology sets RxSafe apart.
One of our most recent developments is the DRI™, the first-of-its-kind, message initiation “data rich interchange” for the retail pharmacy market. This protocol is essential for real workflow, providing pharmacy management with a complete suite of reports at their fingertips. The DRI is an integral part of every RxSafe product, making it a unique offering in pharmacy management software. With the development of the DRI, pharmacy workflow becomes even more robust and streamlined than ever before.
RxSafe is CII Compliant
RxSafe is first and foremost a safe. Overriding the system requires two different keys. Access to CII’s for normal prescription filling requires the operator to have the proper credentials and biometrically log in. Every touch of the container is tracked and recorded to the operator from original stock replenishment until the container is discarded. RxSafe has a rich reporting suite of software, including CII logging.
Comprehensive, Automated Robotic Storage and Retrieval for Retail Pharmacies
The RxSafe 900™ represents an evolutionary leap in the scope of robotic pharmacy automation technology. Rather than simply automating fast-moving drugs the RxSafe 900 provides secure robotic storage and retrieval for retail pharmacy inventory.
RxSafe technology automatically and accurately tracks all drugs in the pharmacy down to the pill or package, while greatly enhancing pharmacy efficiency. Since all drugs are stored in native packaging, there is no need for pharmacy staff to spend time manually restocking dispensing cells. The remote stock management feature manages all the inventory and filling, even if it’s in the refrigerator. And, we’re compatible with virtually all pharmacy management software.
Paw Paw Village introduced the RxSafe 1800 two tower system in one of our 6 stores a year ago. We’ve seen the cost of generics increase the cost of on-hand inventory by an average of $30k in all of our stores except the one with the RxSafe. That store has actually seen a $50k decrease in on-hand inventory costs. This totals $80k in savings attributed to the RxSafe. We’ve also seen our inventory turns increase from 17 turns per year to 23+ turns per year. In addition, we’ve been able to reduce our labor costs by an average of 200 to 250 labor hours per month, which basically covered the payment on the unit. Therefore in four years that labor savings will go directly to cash flow.
I think the most important capability is speed and accuracy. It allows 1 person to fill a multitude of prescriptions quickly and accurately. With the RxSafe it finds it very quickly and brings the correct drug every single time to the operator.
The accuracy of the RxSafe gives me complete peace of mind. As the one responsible for any mistakes made in my pharmacy, this is priceless.
A specific area that we’ve been able to see a tremendous savings in time is through assigning tech’s to other areas. Prior to implementing the RxSafe they were handling inventory management responsibilities. Now we’ve been able to move a tech to our Med Sync program, effectively eliminating 30-40 hours per week of technician time.
Pioneer & RxSafe work together well and definitely make my job/our lives easier.
Adding the RxSafe to our pharmacy has allowed us to reduce the number of employees, monitor inventory levels remotely, and have the assurance of knowing that the machine is a deterrent for theft.
