In 2009 we purchased a Scriptpro SP200 Robotic Prescription Dispensing System at our 18th St location. Immediately after installing and operating the system, we realized the advantages of this new technology to our staff and to our customers in increased accuracy and efficiency.
Inside of the SP200, a robot arm selects the correct size of vial from three choices, picks the correct drug out of the 190 drugs in the robot, and counts the pills into the vial. The vial is then moved by the arm to a conveyor belt where it is labeled with the correct label and then sent out on the belt. It is then sorted into one of 5 lanes where it is listed by name on a computer screen. A staff member scans their badge and receives the filled vial and continues the checking procedures.
In September of 2011 we purchased and installed our second Scriptpro SP200 at our Franklin Blvd location. While it is a significant investment, we feel it adds another layer of protection and accuracy for our valued customers. Feel free to come in and see our robots in action and ask us any questions about our new friends!
