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.
Making your Pharmacy Better than Ever
RxSafe’s installation team is made up of highly trained professionals. They understand the critical path that properly installed technology and automation plays in the ultimate success of our pharmacy clients. Workflow disruption is always a major concern. So, our team of experts complete the implementation phase as quickly as possible to minimize your pharmacy’s down time.
Once the installation is complete, our skilled training staff steps in. They stay by your side to make this technology transition for your staff as easy as possible.
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.
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 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.
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.
We had a space issue prior to getting the RxSafe. We were in 1100 sqft and had 3 bays for medication. We were able to remove two of the prescription bays and put a 2-tower RxSafe in there. This saved us so much room.
