3. Optimize Workflow
Our workstations and flexible equipment allow us to develop a completely new pharmacy or integrate our pieces into your current environment, allowing you to rearrange your space as your business grows.
Central Fill Implementation
Central Fill pharmacies require a completely different design and layout than other markets. The Central Fill design is on a much larger scale, due to the amount of space that is required to process a large volume of scripts per day. Our design engineer will work on designing the workflow to incorporate your existing equipment with our solutions, or strictly with TCGRx solutions. When a pharmacy is looking to start a Central Fill, we determine the number of prescriptions per shift that are currently being processed, and what the projected increase would be.
TCGRx can build a Central Fill pharmacy equipped to handle volumes from 500 to 20,000 prescriptions per day. Our Central Fill design will streamline productivity, improve accuracy and reduce costs, while supplying medications quickly and accurately.
