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.
The RxSafe 1800 is READY. Are you?
The RxSafe 1800 is so Much More Than a Vial Filling Robot.
RxSafe’s Data Rich Interchange
Technology sets RxSafe apart. One of our most recent developments is the DRI™, the first-of-its-kind, message initiation “data rich interchange” for the retail pharmacy market. This protocol is essential for real workflow, providing pharmacy management with a complete suite of reports at their fingertips. The DRI is an integral part of every RxSafe product, making it a unique offering in pharmacy management software. With the development of the DRI, pharmacy workflow becomes even more robust and streamlined than ever before.
RxSafe is CII Compliant
RxSafe is first and foremost a safe. Overriding the system requires two different keys. Access to CII’s for normal prescription filling requires the operator to have the proper credential and biometrically login. Every touch of the container is tracked and recorded to the operator from original stock replenishment until the container is discarded. RxSafe has a rich reporting suite of software, including CII logging.
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.
Only Item Level Tracking Solution
Accurate, perpetual, real-time inventory tracking is one of the major inventory management benefits of the RxSafe 1800. In fact, RxSafe has the only item level tracking solution in the industry. Add to it item level forecasting powered by Datarithm, with cost data, and you end up with a powerful tool called RxCloud Analytics™. Return the management of inventory back to management. Spend money on something other than inventory. 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.
Get DSCSA Compliant now!
RxSafe technology automatically and accurately tracks all drugs in the pharmacy down to the pill or package by product lot number, expiration date, national drug code (NDC), and a serial number. While greatly enhancing pharmacy efficiency, this level of inventory tracking gets your pharmacy ready to read Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) barcodes now since this data satisfies serialization by the unique product identifier. Let RxSafe help you get DSCSA compliant-ready by the November 27, 2018 deadline hassle-free.
Now Comes With a Remote Workstation
Many pharmacies’ workflow requires concurrent tasks like checking in inventory, filling prescriptions, and accessing reports for things to run smoothly and efficiently. Since the RxSafe 1800 now comes with an RxAWS™ (Auxiliary Workstation), these activities can be accomplished simultaneously without disruption.
Available as a Single or Multi Tower Automated Drug Dispensing System
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
