|Short-Cycle Solution from TCGRx||| Print ||
TCGRx has launched ShortCycleRx to provide long-term care pharmacies with a series of comprehensive dispensing options to meet the demands of the potential CMS regulations to reduce medication waste.
CMS has its eye on reducing medication waste by dispensing medications in cycles of seven days or less. TCGRx is providing either a central pharmacy production model, which is a hybrid solution for central filling and facility medication access, or a complete remote medication access solution, which includes a real-time packaging product for the facility.
The central pharmacy solution includes a tablet packager that automates unit-dose or multi-dose pouches, replacing more expensive 30-day packaging formats. The hybrid model allows for central pharmacy filling while leveraging remote dispensing from a secure medication cabinet for first doses, STATs, PRNs, and LOA medications.
