HealthWarehouse.com implements Innovation’s PharmASSIST
Pharmacy automation company Innovation has gotten the seal of approval from a big new client. The Johnson City, N.Y.-based company’s PharmASSIST Quick Start high volume technology has been chosen by HealthWarehouse.com for use in its online/mail-order pharmacy in Florence, Ky.
“Deploying Innovation’s scalable, high-volume pharmacy automation lays the foundation for our rapid growth and expansion while maintaining our high standards of excellence in patient care and services,” HealthWarehouse.com president and CEO Joseph Peters said. “In our search for the right solution, Innovation set itself apart with its combination of premier robotics and highly configurable pharmacy workflow technology tailored to our unique requirements.”
The PharmASSIST Quick Start system that HealthWarehouse.com will use includes the PharmASSIST RDS robotic dispensing technology with Model 4 dispensers, which Innovation said can self-calibrate and count simultaneiously. The system also has pneumatic vial/cap delivery, a conveyer, digital pharmacist verification, collation, packaging and PharmASSIST Symphony workstations to allow for manual filling, the companies said.
“One of the key determining factors in choosing Innovation’s pharmacy solution was its inherent ability to scale for future growth,” Peters said. “The system’s open architecture also easily accommodated our proprietary e-commerce/pharmacy management system platform for servicing online customers and pharmacy workflow.”
Innovation executive vice president of global business development Doyle Jensen said, ““We’re excited to partner with HealthWarehouse and provide a highly automated, low labor, ‘right-sized’ solution that not only scales with them as they grow, but delivers exceptional efficiency for their Rx fulfillment.”
