SAVINGS

  • Drug costs are typically reduced 4-6%* since the facility is only billed for the medications that are used, unlike traditional punch card pharmacies that bill the facility when the medication is dispensed, whether or not is it used
  • By dispensing only the medication needed for that day, an average of 40 fewer tablets and capsules per patient are dispensed each month*
  • Nurses’ time freed up for more direct patient care and monitoring – more than four nursing hours saved per day

* Actual results of customers compared to what would have been dispensed in 30/15-day model.

ACCESS

  • Provides 24/7 access to more than 300 medications – enables facilities to admit higher acuity patients, even late at night and on weekends
  • Unique, proprietary dispensing systems provide access to all dosage forms, including tablets, capsules, liquids, inhalers, topical medications, refrigerated items and IV kits, and other supplies
  • Facility staff has access to certified geriatric clinical pharmacists for enhanced guidance and prospective analysis of medication-related decisions

SAFETY

  • Significantly more accurate than traditional pharmacy dispensing – ensures the right medication is delivered to the right patient at the right time
  • Reduced risk of medication administration errors – patient-specific medications are dispensed in individually sealed, labeled, compliant packaging
  • A proactive clinical focus works to optimize patient drug therapy, helping to reduce medication-related errors, falls and re-hospitalizations
  • Reduced potential for diversion with precise medication inventory tracking and monitoring, access controls and electronic auditing
  • Environmental impact of current medication disposal methods lessened by reducing the accumulation of unused medications
