PickPoint® is a technology leader that has brought innovative tools to the outpatient retail pharmacy market, including the PickPoint® Will Call and Remote Dispensing Systems. PickPoint® is a division of Maxor National Pharmacy Services, a powerhouse that provides a range of services through various divisions, which include pharmacy management services; specialty, home infusion therapy, and mail-order services; 340B third party administration; and pharmacy benefit management (PBM) services.
The Joint Commission requires that all prescriptions undergo pharmacist verification prior to dispensing or administration, which can be challenging for remote clinics or emergency rooms. PickPoint®’s Remote Dispensing System (RDS) allows remote locations to meet this requirement and dispense onsite. RDS is a secure medication storage system that is installed in high patient-traffic areas that do not warrant a separate in-house pharmacy. It ties into prescription fulfillment activities within your in-house retail pharmacy operation, allowing for expanded use of labor and lower cost of providing prescription services to your clientele. The RDS dispensing process is as follows:
"As a pharmacist, nothing gives you peace of mind like an assurance that the patient received the right drug at the right time. In rural Alaska, it’s a big challenge for us to provide pharmacy services and products to multiple remote villages. I struggled with that for years until PickPoint brought the ultimate solution to that problem with their barcode-proof RDS system."
