WEST BLOOMFIELD, MI--(Marketwired - June 11, 2014) - It is no secret that Physician Dispensing play an extra-critical role in health care. This "Point of Care" dispensing of medications faces challenges that include: Eliminating medication dispensing errors, Reducing patient non-compliance, and Managing health care costs. Automated Medication Dispensers, such as the MedVend AMD, are a safe and effective way of managing physician dispensing. It's all about the effective use of today's technology to ensure a safe and effective management of physician medication dispensing.
According to a report in The Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, medication dispensing errors account for approximately 21% of all medication errors. The system that most point-of-care physicians use for medication dispensing is error prone. Using Automated Medication Dispensers is not error prone, and offers many advantages over existing methodology. These errors in medication dispensing represents a significant risk to patients. The MedVend AMD has reduced medication dispensing down to an exact science.
Once a physician dispensing practice places an Automated Medication Dispenser in their office or facility, they have complete control over the prescribing process. The doctor would simply enter the prescription into the AMD system using a computer or tablet. The patient receives a four-digit PIN when they check out. They will then enter their date of birth and their PIN into the AMD, which will display the amount of the patient's copay (after adjudicating with their Pharmacy Benefit Manager) with instructions on how to pay for the medication. If the patient does not have insurance, they will see the cash amount they need to pay. After payment is made, the patient will receive their bottled prescription along with a medication guide and a receipt. All of this takes less than one minute. There is a phone on the AMD which is immediately connected to a pharmacist technician who will answer any patient questions through two-way video conferencing.
Patient non-compliance is at epidemic proportions throughout the Unites States. It directly impacts on patient wellness. Every time a patient leaves the dispensing physician's office without their medication, the likelihood of non-adherence increases. It is well known that when patients have immediate access to their prescription, they are more likely to fill it, and thus begin their medication immediately. According to a company spokesperson, the MedVend AMD not only is an excellent additional income stream, it relieves staff of time-consuming duties so that they can focus more on direct patient care. At the same time, it ensures that all Federal, State and local regulations are satisfied. Also, Federal and State entities inspect the AMD Units for safety and compliance.
Medications are pre-packaged at an FDA Regulated Facility, which removes the possibility of cross-contamination which occurs using "prescription filling trays." HIPAA Standards are easily met through the AMD System's use of top security and safety functions. The integrity of prescriptions is promoted multiple times throughout the prescription filling and delivery process.
