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.
At RxSafe we care about your pharmacy’s needs and concerns. That’s why we spend quality time getting to know what’s important to you before we begin to design anything…because listening to you will produce the best solution for your workflow environment.
Via phone calls, emails and/or face-to-face consultations we gather the information and details that are critical for your improved success—number of employees, security concerns, space constraints, inventory management issues and other elements that are unique to your pharmacy. Once we understand all the relevant details, our team of designers and engineers render your layout using our advanced 3D software. Upon design approval, installation begins.
RxSafe’s design strategies include a wide array of design choices that incorporate the latest industry advancements. We can change and arrange the machines and the software features, including the interfaces to the PMS (host) systems. We can place the systems in unique arrangements within your pharmacy space. We offer fixtures and furniture from leading manufactures to compliment the design ensemble as needed. The end result is an updated pharmacy space with optimized workflow. That efficiency translates into more money to your bottom line.
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.
