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.
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.
As an innovator, Ken Thai is among the first to have invested in the scripClip LED lighted will-call system. He says he was “in the market” for a way to improve the look and feel of the will-call area. But, up to that time the systems he had looked at were too expensive; and installing them also required expensive rearranging of the prescription pick-up area.
