Broomfield, Colo. (March 5th, 2019) – Swisslog Healthcare, a leader in automated medication management solutions for long-term and post-acute care facilities, launches the InSite In-Facility Medication Packaging and Dispensing Service while exhibiting at the MHA Business Summit in Las Vegas March 6th and 7th.
"As the market experiences a growing higher acuity aging population with more complex cases and limited clinical resources, the importance of proper and cost-effective medication management and pharmacist oversight are key to providing quality care," explains Huan Nguyen R.PH., Vice President of Business Development for Swisslog Healthcare’s Long-Term Care division. "The InSite In-Facility Medication Packaging and Dispensing Service helps long term care pharmacies leverage automation by minimizing the risk of investing.”
In contrast to traditional purchase models, this service relieves pharmacies of the burden of system ownership. Swisslog Healthcare maintains all responsibility for InSite, keeping software up to date, so customers always have the latest safety and efficiency enhancements.
"As interest in Long Term Care Pharmacy automation continues to grow, cash flows and shorter facility contract periods have left many feeling apprehensive about investing in technology,” states Mike Carmody, Vice President of Swisslog Healthcare’s Long-Term Care division. “With Swisslog Healthcare’s InSite In-Facility Medication Packaging and Dispensing Service, pharmacies can obtain their equipment and software without a large capital outlay of cash, pause their subscription in the event of a gap between facility contracts and cancel this service at an individual site at any time. These are just a few of the ways we are minimizing the risk of changing from their traditional dispensing methods”
