The RxAnytime System
The RxAnytime system provides the consumers an opportunity to pickup prescriptions from a pharmacy without waiting in long lines. Medical counseling can be done through a pre-recorded automated process, a call to the pharmacist, or , if during pharmacy hours of operation, an old-fashioned face-to-face conversation with the pharmacist. As repeat customers continue to use their local pharmacy, the checkout time is reduced by leveraging data entered during the previous visit(s). The customer will also have the opportunity to purchase additional store items during the same transaction along with the payment process for their prescriptions.
Provide consumers with a secure and automated method to pick up prescription medicines without taking valuable time from the pharmacist or pharmacy technician. This system allows for a substantial cost savings in labor hours and benefits cost. This system also allows for 24 hour access for consumers to pick up their medications once the prescription has been filled. The system can be modified to provide consumers with an external access point like a “Walk-up” Kiosk on an exterior wall, should the facility close its doors during the night. Merchants will also have the opportunity to deliver pre-recorded ads to the customer through the LCD display as the customer is awaiting their prescription.
There is demand for pharmacy chains, and mom and pop pharmacy offices, to cut cost, automate processes, implement additional systems security, work within a defined floor space, add value to operations, enhance services and customer experience, and provide extended hours without additional cost. With the RxAnytime system deployment, the pharmacist can do just that. Additional benefits include the ability for the RxAnytime systems to smoothly integrate with merchant IT systems. Th pharmacist can also use pre-recorded counselling videos that are shared with the customer at the time of customer checkout without interruption of the pharmacist.
About R.H. Maxwell
I have been in the IT industry for 35 years. The last 15 years I have been architecting solutions for complex operations for Fortune 500 companies. My wife and I have decided to start a company in which we introduce robotics and kiosk systems, working together, resulting in added value to the operations of any size pharmacy. Our systems will enhance the consumer’s experience at their local pharmacy, where they may bypass lines at the counter, and conduct self-checkout. For added value, the merchant has the option to add an external-facing kiosk to support after-hours service for customers needing to pick up their pharmacist-filled prescriptions.
