Medication waste and inefficiency are ongoing problems in many post-acute and long-term care settings. As conventional pharmacies typically deliver medications in 14 to 30-day supplies, nurses and support staff spend endless hours related to:
- Storing and inventory
- Disposal and destruction of unused medications
- Processing requests for credits
- Reconciliation of credits being accurately applied
- Follow up on credits not applied
Nursing and staff time spent on these tasks is time lost with patients and their families. There is a solution available through Highly Reliable RX.
Do you struggle with these challenges?
- Unreliable and inconsistent service from pharmacy providers
- Concerns about availability of medications
- Administrative time lost and costs associated with processing returns/credits/re-orders
- Reduced time nurses spend interacting with patients due to time spent on medication delivery
- Increased stress on nurses managing medications and reduced job satisfaction
- Inconsistent performance of on-time medication deliveries
- Limitations on mobility of patients receiving IV medication therapy
Our innovative pharmaceutical dispensing system and professional services were developed with your facility in mind, and were tested and perfected in our own SNF, LTC and assisted living facilities.Our hands-on experience, innovative pharmaceutical dispensing system,and professional services makes Highly Reliable RX the ideal partner.
Highly Reliable RX provides an efficient, consistent and time-saving medication dispensing option through multidose strip packaging. We utilize Parata Systems technology, a proven leader for medication dispensing solutions, to deliver individualized packaging and processes that supports medication adherence and management, and produces measurable operational improvements.Packages are secure, yet easy to open, even for patients who are administering their own medications, allowing for both accountability and patient safety.
To reduce the possibility of medication administration errors, each packet comes clearly labeled with all pertinent information, including:
- Patient name and location
- Medication pass time
- Drug name and strength
- Patient and medication specific bar coding
- Physical description of each medication within the package
- Quantity dispensed
- Prescribing physician name
Highly Reliable RX is designed for the flexibility you need, and can be customized to accommodate any unique dispensing needs of your facilities.Medication strips can be sorted by your preference, such as room and bed, or by medication pass time. Variable cycle lengths help to minimize the impact of medication changes, and facilities/families are only charged for the doses actually dispensed. This saves money and eliminates the practice of charging and applying retroactive credits for unused medications. Additionally, packets can include over-the-counter medications, reducing the need to have stock bottles take up space in storage areas and medication carts.
