The case for pour and count pharmaceutical packaging
THIS ARTICLE will compare the two major delivery systems for prescription drugs, namely the “pour and count”(P&C) system generally used in the United States and Canada, and the “unit of use” (UOU) system found in Europe and other parts of the world.

U.S. Navy Pharmacies improve patient care with Telepharmacy
After testing all available telepharmacy systems, ScriptPro’s Telepharmacy was the only product found to meet the high standards established by the Navy to ensure that patients receive the same high quality care via remote interaction with their pharmacist as they would if the patient and pharmacist were face to face. The largest Telepharmacy rollout in history is now underway.
’09 Hospital Buyers Guide Featured Pharmacist, Jim Germano, R.Ph.
CT: What motivated you to select ScriptPro?
Germano: I was already familiar with their robotics from experience in retail pharmacy. When it comes to the workflow, I really feel that they have a product that creates a strong safety profile, with all the barcoding and the ability to see the tablet image on the screen when you are verifying the prescription.
Filling a Void
How a progressive regional chain in the upper Midwest uses telepharmacy to provide service to a community in need.
“We didn’t spend a lot of time looking at competitive systems,” Gallagher says. “Since we already had a positive relationship with ScriptPro, we decided to go down and look at what they had, and we were really impressed.”
Gallagher especially liked ScriptPro’s data storage capabilities that he says allow retention of pill, prescription hard copy, and other images for an unlimited amount of time.

Working with the System
Though bringing this system on board did not enable us to reduce our staff levels, it has enabled us to make better use of the pharmacists that we have by allowing them to check products remotely at their convenience, thereby eliminating the need for a pharmacist to be physically present at the time of compounding. Most importantly, this process adds a safeguard to our chemotherapy preparation process. We can now replicate the impact of having a pharmacist present at the point of admixture by having them review all admixture steps retrospectively.
Now? You’ve got to be kidding me
Automation can be expensive, so how can I rationalize it in the present economy? Now, more than ever, may actually be the best time. Let's evaluate.
We have always fought battles with the insurers, chains, credit card companies, discount card issuers, and everyone else that can figure a way to extract dollars out of our pharmacies. We do not expect that to change or get better. But we have survived. Our profession has always been a battlefield, so the national economy is just another skirmish.
Scientist Calls for Federal Review of Exposure Issue
Personal Exposure Monitors Show Pharmacy Workers Inhale Drugs When Using Air Pressure-Activated Dispensing Machines
AlburtyLab released a report on its comprehensive evaluation of health risks for workers in pharmacies using air pressure-activated drug dispensing machines. The study tested pharmacy workers wearing personal exposure monitors (PEMs) while using the two leading types of air pressure-activated dispensing technologies – the McKesson/Parata Max and the McKesson/Parata RDS. This is the third major study conducted by AlburtyLab examining the issues relating to pharmacy worker exposure.

Mister Cory's Neighborhood
It’s said that a pessimist sees a glass as half empty, and an optimist views it as half full. As for Tom Cory, RPh, you’ll probably need a bigger glass to keep the water from spilling over the top.
Cory, born and raised in Fall River, Massachusetts, is owner of Standard Pharmacy, located only a few blocks away from where he grew up. He describes himself as “the local guy who made good and came home.”
