The RxSafe 1800 robotic storage and retrieval system from Innovation, makers of PharmASSIST pharmacy automation solutions, gets high marks from Matthew Maker, owner of Donlon HealthMart Pharmacy in Decorah, Iowa. Following his recent implementation of RxSafe, Maker has found that the system has helped to reduce unneeded stock.

Maker generates a 90-day returns report every weekend and sends back to the wholesaler any sealed stock bottles that are not needed, receiving full credit as long as the wholesaler receives it before the 90-day window expires. He sees RxSafe as part of keeping a leaner inventory.

His pharmacy fills between 275 and 300 prescriptions a day. The RxSafe 1800 is integrated with the pharmacy’s Computer-Rx WinRx pharmacy management system.
