Skilled Care Pharmacy, TCGRx to implement medication packaging and quality control system

US-based Skilled Care Pharmacy has selected TCGRx to implement its medication packaging and quality control system using the latest technology available.

Initially, the partnership will see the introduction of the Automated Tablet Packager (ATP) and Smart Tray which allow Skilled Care to implement 7-, 14-, and 30-day cycle fills that are compatible with E-MAR systems.

The pharmacy could maximize customer service levels and scale more volume, using barcode and image validation.

The TCGRx documents and stores an image of every prescription sent to patients electronically. To help ensure that the correct prescription is being distributed to the correct patient, the pouch verification device inspects 12 physical characteristics of the medication.

A pharmacist will verify each pouch to ensure safety and every image captured is archived for easy referencing in the future.

TCGRx president Duane Chudy said, "Our system is now capable of allowing pharmacies to address the shift in the market toward shorter cycles while controlling labor costs."
