OREM, Utah — Suncrest Solutions in partnership with EZ-RFID introduced the HangRx/p-link automated light guided will-call system.
Using radio frequency ID, this patented system easily converts existing the hangup bag will call system to a highly efficient, automated light guided will call, a win-win for pharmacists and patients, according to the company. “With integrations and relationships in today’s top pharmacy management systems, upgrading your will call doesn’t get any easier,” stated Suncrest.
“The technology has thus far been implemented at Drugco Discount Pharmacy in Roanoke Rapids, N.C. “The system provides a huge amount of [return on investment] for both money and time,” said Drew Huggins, chief operating officer for Drugco. “Our pharmacy fills 1,300 prescriptions per day and has over 600 individual prescription pick-ups on a typical day. If we are conservatively saving an average of 1 minute per prescription pick up, we are recouping almost 10 hours of employee time per day in retrieving prescriptions alone. Our cost savings are primarily associated with this reduction in employee time burden, as well as a decrease in costs associated with prescription pick-up errors and lost time for long searches.”
