|QS/1 Releases Will-Call Storage System||| Print ||
RetrieveRx, a fully integrated solution to help pharmacists quickly store and retrieve prescriptions, is now available from QS/1.
RetrieveRx uses the RxMedic prescription bags, which are made from heavy-duty materials that can withstand repeated use in a pharmacy. The bags hang on a rack for a more organized appearance and use color-coded lights for easy identification. After filling, the prescriptions are assigned and placed into a bag. Upon pickup, RetrieveRx sends a signal to the bag, which activates the lights in order to find the appropriate bag. Employees can be assigned their own light display combination to eliminate confusion in higher-volume pharmacies with multiple pickup areas. The new storage and retrieval system is driven by QS/1’s NRx pharmacy management system.
“Pharmacy staff spend a significant amount of time digging through bins looking for prescriptions,” says Tom McLeod, QS/1 VP of administration and marketing. “Prescriptions may be put in the wrong bin or are not collated with other prescriptions for that patient or family members. RetrieveRx enables pharmacy staff to visually see where prescriptions are located so the pickup process is more efficient.”
