The RxSafe has provided us with a myriad of benefits – it’s allowed us to reassign employees, save space in the pharmacy and made it faster and more accurate to fill scripts.
When we were broken into last year, the burglars took all the drugs off the pharmacy shelf, but they didn’t even touch the RxSafe.
Before we had the RxASP we were manually filling all the short cycle dispensing, and now we can automatically fill those and don’t have to worry about medication errors. Adding the RxASP has saved us more than 30% of our time in filling.
The accuracy that the RxSafe provides has improved my peace of mind. Now I don’t have to worry about errors and I feel secure knowing that what is dispensed is 100% correct.
Our RxSafe automation freed up space, time and people in our pharmacy so we could do other things.
I love knowing the drugs coming out of the RxSafe are always correct. Plus, the machine tracks inventory expiration dates and quantities so I know what drugs are where at all times.
Space available for us to work in has been increased because storage space for the drugs is all in the RxSafe and that frees up a lot of space around it for us to work. We’ve been able to add a very good will call system that wasn’t available before because of space constraints.
Our operational costs are significantly lower due to the tracking and reporting now available to us through the RxSafe. We’ve been able to reduce our overall inventory by $70,000 since we installed the RxSafe. They provided us with the most professional install I’ve ever had.
We introduced the RxSafe 1800 into one of our pharmacies two years ago. That store had a $50,000 decrease, which totals $80,000 in savings and our inventory turns have increased by 6+ turns / year. Additionally, we’ve reduced labor costs by 200–250 labor hours per month, which covered the payment on the unit. In three years that labor savings will go directly to our bottom line. The cost of on-hand inventory in our other stores, without the RxSafe, has increased by $30,000.
Three months after introducing the RxSafe we saw a reduction in technician labor hours of between 200–250 hours per month. This reduction basically covers the cost of the RxSafe.
What makes our biz very unique is the niche service that we offer through the RxASP 20. We can now offer our patients the option of picking up all their prescriptions once a month, organized so they can easily take them as prescribed, and get them on track to achieve 100% adherence. This really helps our business, but it also helps our patients achieve their health goals.
Controlled substance security is greatly enhanced with the machine. I was broken into 3 weeks ago and they didn’t get anything out of the RxSafe.
Our inventory is always accurate and therefore what we order is always accurate.
I would absolutely purchase the RxSafe again. It does exactly what I was told it would do, and the support has been phenomenal!
In just six weeks, we’re seeing tangible results in staff productivity and we’ve been able to focus more on compounding in our new compounding lab and on our customer care.
Our fill-related errors are virtually non-existent since we installed the RxSafe because it’s impossible to put the wrong medication in the prescription bottle.
