Grove Park Pharmacy is one of, now, four Orange Cut Rate Drug Stores that got their start in South Carolina in 1934. Over nearly 90 years and three generations, the operation has grown, and the scripClip will-call automation system has become essential to their operation.
“Ask anyone on staff – of anything in the pharmacy, they’ll say, ‘don’t get rid of scripClip!’” said Maggy Lawson, Pharm.D., RPh, pharmacy manager at Kubat HealthCare in Beatrice, Nebraska.
There are two main reasons Greg Bowles, Ph.T, associate director of pharmacy at the Los Angeles LGBT Center, sleeps better at night, having the scripClip™ system: “time management and patient safety.”
Pugh says that if he ever took the system out he is sure some of his employees would be upset and give him a serious “talking too.” “They love the system,” he says. And then he says, “As for me, saving time, impressing patients and pleasing my staff makes scripClip a sound investment.”
InterLink AI’s scripClip, pick-to-light, will-call bin system has been deployed at Nebraska Medicine’s flagship outpatient pharmacy, which has just completed a major expansion and remodeling with the new technology.
The scripClip system, in concert with their pharmacy management system, lets the pharmacy staff know if there are multiple bags for a particular person, or, if there are other prescriptions filled for other members of that person’s family.
Mark Vogler, RPh, is the owner of Martin-Tipton Pharmacy in Amarillo, TX. He says scripClip has allowed him to reduce the number of bags in his will-call bin from 400 to 300. Two metrics alone, he says, more than justify the cost of the system.
Tom Gierwatoski says it was the first piece of technology he has ever bought where no one on his staff pushed back. So, after nearly 18 months of operation I asked him what he liked most about the system. He identified five key things.
“The moment I saw it I was intrigued. It just seemed to be a great way to improve customer safety and service.” Finney says scripClip provides his pharmacy with three benefits.
David Vasenden, R.Ph., a partner in this unique operation says he first saw the scripClip will-call system at the Cardinal Health Retail Business Conference. While not actively looking for a will-call system he was acquainted with one of the sales representatives in the PerceptiMed booth so he took time to listen.
