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.

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® represents an evolutionary leap in robotic pharmacy automation technology. Rather than simply automating fast-moving drugs, the RxSafe 1800 provides secure robotic storage and retrieval for your entire pharmacy inventory including controlled
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.
Now Comes With an RxAWS 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
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.
What we liked about RxSafe vs the competitors was the speed of the device and the security of how it stores the medications. We just felt that that combination of speed and security was the right for our volume.
When we were broken into last year, the burglars took all the drugs off the pharmacy shelf, but they didn’t even touch 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.
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.
