Asteres Inc., the industry’s leading provider of automated kiosks for 24/7 prescription pick up and consumer product sales in retail, hospital, and DOD/VA sites, announced the expansion of ScriptCenter at ProMedica.
ProMedica was looking for a solution to expand their pharmacy services to employees at their ProMedica St. Luke’s Hospital location, but the hospital didn’t have an outpatient pharmacy. ProMedica St. Luke’s Hospital has a busy inpatient pharmacy, but no ability to service their employee’s prescription pick up needs. ScriptCenter was an obvious solution to fill that void.
“Last year, we installed our first ScriptCenter kiosk at ProMedica Toledo Hospital to allow employees to pick up their prescriptions 24/7, even when ProMedica Pharmacy Counter was closed,” said Bryan Coehrs, PharmD, RPh, director of pharmacy operations for ProMedica Pharmacy Counter. “After seeing the tremendous success we had with more than 70% of our employees using the pharmacy now picking up their prescriptions from ScriptCenter, it was clear that we needed to expand the program to our other locations.”
“We are thrilled to be able to bring our prescription services to additional locations,” continued Coehrs. “ProMedica continues to have a strong relationship with our employees and their wellness needs. ScriptCenter has been a great asset to helping us improve and expand our employee wellness program.”
ProMedica Achievements with ScriptCenter 24/7 Prescription Pickup
1. Expansion of prescription pick-up to locations without an outpatient pharmacy
2. Significant increase in employee/family prescriptions on 2nd & 3rd shifts
3. 24/7 pharmacy services without extending hours or adding staff
Asteres Inc. develops secure self-service kiosks for delivery of prescriptions and consumer products worldwide. Asteres’ premier product is ScriptCenter, the first prescription pick-up kiosk for retail, healthcare and military pharmacies that allows patients to pickup and pay for their prescriptions even when the pharmacy is closed.

In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
