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.
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.
Our ROI was roughly a year for this machine, mainly because I didn’t have to move and that savings was pretty up front for us. Even after the first year you’re constantly seeing increases to our bottom line in terms of profitability.
Pioneer & RxSafe work together well and definitely make my job/our lives easier.
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.
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.
You can’t make a mistake unless you insist on making a mistake.
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.
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.
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. RxSafe provided us with the most professional install I’ve ever had. 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.
