|Innovation Adds Mobile Device to Product Liney||| Print ||
With so many pharmacies offering drive-thru windows and home delivery, Innovation has introduced a mobile signature capture and delivery pad. However, according to the company, this wireless device goes beyond capturing signatures outside the pharmacy. It’s a small, Windows-compatible, portable pad that shows all of the information for a prescription. And for hospitals and long-term care facilities, the pad can track bedside delivery of medications.
The company is currently working on extended applications for the pad to run PharmASSIST Symphony in order to perform all workflow tasks, operate patient consultation modules, and support receiving of payment information.
The company has also announced a five-year contract for up to $49 million from the U.S. Navy to supply pharmacy automation to its high-volume pharmacies around the world. “Innovation is pleased that the U.S. Navy has awarded us this significant contract to upgrade their prescription fulfillment processes and quality control,” says Mary Reno, Innovation’s CEO. Prior to this, U.S. Navy hospitals acquired their pharmacy automation systems individually. The new contract calls for central acquisition and management of a standardized automation system throughout the life of the contract.
