Retail Pharmacy Automation Solutions

TCGRx has developed a comprehensive line of retail pharmacy solutions that include adherence packaging (AdherePac™), automated tablet packaging, pharmacy fixtures, high-density storage, will-call management, and inventory management. The highlight of TCGRx systems is the integration we provide with your existing pharmacy systems that is tailored to your needs and budget. Our solutions can be scaled from simple tabletop packaging technology to enterprise-level perpetual inventory management. We provide the tools and strategies to make your pharmacy more efficient and reliable. TCGRx pharmacy automation equipment will help you prevent medication filling errors, and increase pharmacy staff efficiency.

The benefits of automated pharmacy systems are substantial, as your pharmacy can automate the pill dispensing process to affordably stay competitive and provide benefits to the patients. TCGRx has the most experienced team in the industry for pharmacy consulting and design. The staff at TCGRx works with you to determine your needs and analyzes your space to define the appropriate products for your pharmacy.

 

How to identify the needs of your retail pharmacy

The talented staff of pharmacy designers and engineers at TCGRx work with you to determine your needs to analyze your space and define the appropriate products for your retail pharmacy. Our team of industry experts are with you every step of the process, from pre- to post-implementation process. TCGRx will take the time to learn your individual pharmacy needs, before delving into your design. Our flexible equipment allows us to develop a completely new pharmacy or integrate our pieces into your current environment.

1. The process begins with a consultation from our sales team.

Our sales team will work with you to identify your pharmacy’s needs and overall workflow. They discuss with you the number of scripts per day your pharmacy manages, your budget, space allocation, whether you are looking for automation equipment or workstations, and the best solution to maximize your footprint.

 

2. Depending on the size and complexity of the project, a TCGRx workflow engineer is brought on to the project.  

If workflow adjustments are needed, a certified TCGRx workflow engineer is brought on to the project. We can provide onsite evaluations to thoroughly review the project, and determine the solutions that best fit your space. The engineer will go through the design with you and determine if any additional electrical will be required based on the new floor plan.

 

3. TCGRx will then provide you with a quote.

It is a quick process for TCGRx to identify your retail pharmacy needs. Depending on budget, your retail pharmacy can buy a piece of equipment now and another piece next year. You may see that things have improved in your workflow, but you may also find things that still need to be improved upon and TCGRx can reevaluate your retail pharmacy astime progresses. One of the best aspects of working with TCGRx is that everything is mobile and on wheels so it can be moved around if your design changes at a later date.

 

TCGRx has developed a comprehensive line of retail pharmacy market solutions including pharmacy fixtures, adherence packaging (AdherePac™), workflow automation, will-call and inventory management. With all of our solutions, your retail pharmacy can use modules or integrated systems depending on your needs and budget. Our Beacon® product is geared specifically to improve retail pharmacy workflow efficiency while also reducing the area for prescription filling so that you can add new TCGRx products and services, and increase productivity. TCGRx also offers some of the most innovative solutions including our ATP Series for adherence packaging to help improve patient compliance.

Pouch Packaging Storage

Disposable Boxes

Disposable boxes are ideal for nursing cart fills or provide an inexpensive option for adherence programs. When filling these boxes, the “fan fold” method of distribution is used, allowing the pouches to be removed freely from the boxes. Available in medium and large, each size handles approximately 53 to 160 pouches respectively.

Reusable Boxes

Medications are dispensed into 7, 14, or 30-day rolls, and sent home with the patient to maintain adherence. If your patient has a caregiver, the caregiver can check the boxes at random and verify when the last dose was taken. The boxes allow for reuse, therefore reducing waste. Available in small, medium and large, with pouch capacities of 42, 133 and 255 respectively, an additional advantage of the reusable boxes is the ability to customize boxes with your unique pharmacy branding. You can add logo, colors, and store/website information to match your pharmacy look, and provide contact information at a glance for the patient.

TheBox™

A timed dispensing unit helps patients increase medication adherence. It promotes independence, allowing patients to be in charge of their medication administration process. There are four (4) distinct alarm settings that are programmable for different times throughout the day. An alarm will sound when it is time to take medication. For everyday use, an AC plug is provided as well as battery backup for power loss or when traveling, as it is small, compact and portable.

CompletePac™

CompletePac is a convenient, easy-to-handle solution for discharged patients that require a few days of meds to hold them over until follow-up with their physician after discharge. It offers the best of both worlds: multiple unit-dose packaging in one pass time-specific pouch for easy distribution. Our larger pouch option integrates both oral solids and unit-of-use items for easy patient handling.

Beacon Mobile

Beacon® Mobile

Beacon is designed to replace or supplement existing systems by providing perpetual inventory management with individual package monitoring for quantity, expiration date, and touch frequency.
