What Time Do You Have?

What would you do with more time in the day? To remain competitive, pharmacies must double their prescription volume over the next five years without increasing costs.

Profit Time or Loss Time?

"With the influx of prescriptions and third parties cutting reimbursements, we have to fill more without increasing our labor costs just to maintain a profit."
    Jack Pavis, Newhard Pharmacy, Northampton, Pa.

Parata RDS is the best single investment your pharmacy can make today to prepare for future growth. Parata RDS (Robotic Dispensing System) automates more than half of your pharmacy's prescription volume, with far greater speed and accuracy than manual filling, and frees staff time for higher-value activities.

Dream Time or Worry Time?

"I no longer wake at 3 in the morning worrying about medication errors in the previous day's prescriptions."
    Richard Logan, owner of L&S Pharmacy, Charleston, MO.

What is the value of preventing a single medication error? With prescription volumes rising at staggering annual rates, errors are on the rise as well. Parata RDS uses NDC bar coding to ensure the correct medication is placed in the machine's dispensing cell, eliminating the potential for prescription dispensing errors, and delivers 99.8 percent counting accuracy. Parata RDS frees staff time to counsel and support patients, check potential drug interactions and perform other activities that enhance patient safety.

Fill Time or Face Time?

"I cannot imagine - even if we were filling 1,000 scripts a day - getting to the point where our prescription volume is greater than what Parata RDS can handle. Even during our busiest times it ends up waiting on us."
    Jay Phipps, Phipps Pharmacy, McKenzie, Tenn.

Customers choose your pharmacy for your service and patient care. So, when you're stuck behind the counter handling prescriptions most of the day, it costs you business.

Parata RDS handles the nitty-gritty work of prescription processing with far greater speed and accuracy than manual filling. It processes a prescription in just 20 seconds, a cycle time that includes selecting and labeling a vial, counting, capping and sorting by patient last name.

SP 200® Robotic Prescription Dispensing System.

ScriptPro's SP 200 is a proven and reliable prescription dispensing system that automates the repetitive, manual dispensing tasks most subject to human error.

The SP 200, interfaced with the pharmacy computer system, delivers filled and labeled vials for up to 150 prescriptions per hour. The system contains 200 universal dispensing cells, which can account for up to 60% of your volume. Because the cells are universal, drugs can be added or removed on the fly as necessary. It handles tablets and capsules of all shapes and sizes, and supports standard pharmacy vials. Because the system fills directly from the dispensing cells, there is no drug cross-contamination. The SP 200 also prints and applies the prescription and auxiliary labels, and delivers uncapped vials for final inspection using on-screen drug image verification.

Bar codes are used throughout the process for accuracy and quality control. Pharmacists manage the dispensing process from prescription entry to approval of the finished product.



ScriptPro's SP Central Workflow Management System complements our robotic dispensing technology by coordinating the entire pharmacy workflow. Because every pharmacy has different needs, ScriptPro has built flexibility into the SP Central platform. The system offers a flexible and universal set of software tools that allow SP Central components to be configured for any pharmacy practice.

SP Central works with the existing pharmacy computer system and utilizes bar code scanning controls to ensure prescription accuracy. This advanced workflow technology directs the dispensing process from point of entry to patient delivery.
