Make Your Pharmacy Competitive with RxSafe
Save Space Instead of Remodeling with RxSafe.
The high cost of retail space in California makes it hard for independent pharmacies to be profitable. Remodeling or moving to a larger space will cost you money or customers in the transition. Ken Thai, owner of El Monte Pharmacy was contemplating moving to a larger space, but when he say RxSafe’s high-density storage capabilities he realized he did not have to.
The El Monte Pharmacy in California competes with the chain drugstores. In 12 years, the independent pharmacy has grown in size to more than 40 employees, filling more than 1,000 scripts per day. El Monte uses an RxSafe system. El Monte has automated 85% of its pharmacy’s production volume by leveraging the efficiency of the RxSafe 1800 system. RxSafe’s ability to pay for itself in as little as 12 months — coupled with tax savings achieved under IRS Section 179.
Comprehensive, Automated Robotic Storage and Retrieval for Retail Pharmacies
The RxSafe 1800™ is a pharmacy workflow solution that represents a revolutionary leap in the scope of robotic pharmacy automation technology and automated drug dispensing systems. Rather than simply automating fast-moving drugs the RxSafe 1800 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.
The RxSafe 1800 is available as a Single or Multi Tower Automated Drug Dispensing System
Since we got the RxSafe we’ve found that our workflow is more efficient, our fills are more accurate and the speed allows us to focus on patient needs more than any other automation solution could.
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.
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.
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.
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.
