Innovation introduces PharmASSIST Light-Way storage, retrieval system
JOHNSON CITY, N.Y. — Pharmacy automation company Innovation has a new offering for pharmacies. The company’s new PharmASSIST Light-Way solution is a tool for will-call management, prescription order collation and inventory management for retail central fill/mail order pharmacies.
Light-Way is made up of configurable cabinetry featuring multicolored light strips, with the option to add such security measures as lockable doors with biometric light strips. The intelligent pick-to-light technology uses the lights to assist pharmacy staff by showing where to place or pickup prescriptions, or where to stock medication.
“There continues to be a need for affordable and highly configurable tools that improve the quality of the prescription fulfillment process, especially in the areas of medication picking, order collation, inventory management, and sortation. Existing tools are targeted at high volume facilities, come at high costs, and only address specific operational flows,” said Tom Boyer, COO at Innovation. “Our Light-Way technology breaks through these barriers by providing a fully configurable, low cost, guided pick-and-place solution that’s scalable to any size pharmacy.”
Light-Way is integrated with Innovation’s PharmASSIST Symphony workflow and operations management program. It also can be integrated with third-part pharmacy management systems through a software development kit, the company said.
