Kudos for acquiring a cabinet for after hours pharmacy. As one of the ER physicians who does a lot of after hours prescribing, I feel it adds greatly to the safety and efficiency of that process.

After years of struggling to find a solution for after hours dispensing, the cabinet by PickPoint provided the answer. The unit is efficient, easy to use and best of all, cost effective. After just a few days, even the medical staff in the Emergency Department were convinced the problem was solved.

As a pharmacist, nothing gives you peace of mind like an assurance that the patient received the right drug at the right time. In rural Alaska, it’s a big challenge for us to provide pharmacy services and products to multiple remote villages. I struggled with that for years until PickPoint brought the ultimate solution to that problem with their barcode-proof RDS system.

We were looking for a cost effective way to improve our will call process and the Pickpoint WCS solved most the issues we were dealing with. The WCS provided efficiency and safety during dispensing. Our prescription retrieval and patient wait times were reduced significantly. Our technicians used to dread to do RTS because it was so cumbersome and time consuming. Now RTS is just a walk in the park. Bottom line, the system created value for our patients and pharmacy staff.

(In response to manual dispensing when prescription software goes down) CHCS (Military Prescription Software) has been down here for 4 hours. The PickPoint cabinets are being used manually to treat our active duty! Providers are happy and patients did not have to wait for meds, unlike at our main facility where operations went to a halt.

I have been interested in automation solutions for many years, but never felt they could cost-justify themselves. However, at an industry tradeshow I discovered PickPoint, and the price was right for the solution I thought it could give my pharmacy. My pharmacy has really grown in the last year, and we are now filling about 1,300 scripts per week. Generally, without interruption it used take up to 2 minutes to fill an script. However, now it handles around 50% of my volume, and the complete process for getting a customer a script takes under a minute with the PickPoint cabinet. This has enabled our pharmacy volume to grow without adding more headcount.
