ProMedica Expands ScriptCenter® to Grow Employee Prescription Services

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

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
