QS/1 Releases RetrieveRx™ Will Call Storage System
Spartanburg, SC – May 2, 2012 – QS/1 announces the release of RetrieveRx™, a fully integrated solution to help pharmacies quickly store and retrieve patient prescriptions.
“Pharmacy staff members spend a significant amount of time digging through bins looking for prescriptions,” said Tom McLeod, QS/1 vice president of Administration and Marketing. “Prescriptions may be put in the wrong bin, or not collated with other prescriptions for that patient or family members. RetrieveRx enables pharmacy staff to visually see where prescriptions are located, so the pickup process is more efficient.”
RetrieveRx utilizes the RxMedic prescription bags. The bags and handles are made from heavy-duty materials that can handle the rigors of a busy pharmacy. The bags hang on a rack for a more organized store appearance. RetrieveRx is driven by the NRx™ Pharmacy Management System. The pharmacy maintains RetrieveRx completely within NRx, eliminating the need to learn a new system.
RetrieveRx uses storage bags with color-coded lights for easy identification. After you fill the prescriptions, medications are assigned and placed into a bag. When the patient picks up the prescriptions, RetrieveRx sends a signal to the bag which activates the lights to alert the staff where they can find the medications.
Employees can be assigned their own light display combination, eliminating confusion in higher volume pharmacies with multiple pickup areas.
“We are excited about this new product and the integration with RxMedic,” McLeod said. “It shows our focus to help pharmacies achieve their goals. Increased efficiency reduces cost and makes pharmacies more profitable.”
