Innovation, makers of PharmASSIST® pharmacy automation solutions, today announced that MaxorPlus (Maxor) has implemented the firm’s PharmASSIST® high-volume pharmacy automation for its MXP mail order facility in Amarillo, Texas.
“As we planned for this mail order technology project, our main goals were to improve our prescription fulfillment quality for patients, achieve quicker turn-around times on our patient orders, and increase operational efficiency,” said Steve Smith, R.Ph., executive vice president, MaxorPlus. “Innovation’s high-volume technologies were at the head of the pack in various areas including process and logistics efficiency, quality protocols, scalability, and footprint.”
The Innovation high-volume system employs PharmASSIST Symphony® for High Volume, an intelligent operations management platform that enables Maxor to perform dynamic prioritization and workload balancing to automatically adjust to changes in demand. The system also comprises two robotic dispensing pods, pneumatic vial/cap delivery, the PharmASSIST RxCollect™ for robotic order collation, a conveying system, and several workstations for manual filling, digital pharmacist verification (PV2), packaging, manifest/sortation, and shipping.
“Maxor went about their search in a pragmatic and intelligent manner, taking advantage of our Pharmacy Intelligence™ service to analyze their data and simulate their process to develop their overall system design. We’ve worked closely with them throughout their implementation and look forward to a long-term partnership as they grow,“ said Doyle Jensen, executive vice president, global business development, Innovation.
