Interlink AI was first venture-funded in 2013 with a driving purpose to reduce the margin of human error in the dispensing of prescription medications in retail pharmacies, long-term care facilities and hospitals.
Our identRx™ and medPass™ solutions use 360-degree imaging and machine learning technology to learn, count, verify and dispense medications. Coupled with our veriFill™ telepharmacy software, pharmacists can confidently approve prescription fills from a remote location.
Ensuring ease, accuracy and safety in the prescription pick-up process is also a priority. Our unique scripClip™ will-call system connects with the existing pharmacy management and point-of-sale systems to make sure every customer quickly gets the right prescription and pharmacy staff is spending their valuable time where it’s most needed.
With this suite of proprietary solutions and relentless commitment to innovation, InterLink AI is helping improve patient outcomes by making pharmacy experiences easier – for staff and customers, alike.
