AcuDose-Rx cabinets feature the exclusive RightStock™ inventory
optimization functionality, which has been shown to reduce medication
stock outs by up to 70 percent and also reduce the number and instances
of expired medications. In addition, RightStock helps track medication
usage, enabling pharmacies to reclaim up to one-third of cabinet space
for fast-moving medications.
In the central pharmacy, Jameson is implementing PROmanager-Rx™. This bar code-driven robotics system is designed to fully automate the storage, dispensing, returns, and crediting of manufacturer-packaged, oral-solid unit doses. As a result, pharmacies can increase filling accuracy while reducing pharmacy labor. The MedCarousel® storage and dispensing system will help support better inventory management and improved productivity.
Jameson also plans to implement Fulfill-Rxsm, an electronic data interchange between McKesson pharmaceutical distribution centers and hospital automation solutions. Fulfill-Rx expedites ordering and synchronization of key formulary information, while bar-code-driven processes help reduce order receipt and restocking time.
“Our integrated product portfolio supports accountability for medications across the entire medication workflow, giving the pharmacy visibility at every step in the process,” said
New partnerships like Jameson demonstrate the continued value of McKesson distribution solutions and pharmacy automation solutions in providing high quality, cost-effective and efficient solutions that safely deliver the right medication closest to the patient.
