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.
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. We’re the only vial-filling solution not impacted by USP <800>. Each medication is safely stored in the original packaging inside the RxSafe 1800, eliminating the risk of cross contamination created by dust.
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 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 RxRWS™ (Remote Workstation), these activities can be accomplished simultaneously without disruption.
Available as a Single or Multi Tower Automated Drug Dispensing System
I love knowing the drugs coming out of the RxSafe are always correct. Plus, the machine tracks inventory expiration dates and quantities so I know what drugs are where at all times.
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.
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.
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.
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.
