The company’s initial product, the SP 200 Robotic Prescription Dispensing System, pioneered the use of robotics in community pharmacies. Today, ScriptPro offers a comprehensive line of over 200 pharmacy automation and management system products that have revolutionized pharmacy operations in the U.S. and around the world.
ScriptPro systems operate in thousands of pharmacy settings including:
- Retail Chains and Independents
- Hospitals and Community Health Centers
- Department of Defense, VAs, and Public Health Centers
- International healthcare sites in Canada, Hong Kong, the Middle East, Singapore, and Thailand
Many large pharmacy chains have standardized operations around the ScriptPro robotic model. Leading hospitals use ScriptPro systems to ensure accuracy and patient safety. Hundreds of VA, Department of Defense, and public health system hospitals rely on ScriptPro's robotics-enabled workflow to care for their patients. DoD deploys ScriptPro telepharmacy equipment at medical facilities around the world to make pharmacists available wherever needed.
ScriptPro has grown through invention and product development rather than through acquisition. It owns the core technologies utilized and manufactures, sells, installs, and supports all of its products.
ScriptPro has been honored with numerous awards for outstanding service to the pharmacy industry, its customers, and the community. ScriptPro maintains a comprehensive drug information system that has been recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as an important source of accurate and current information for prescription and over-the-counter drug products.
Mike Coughlin is the founder of ScriptPro, and president, CEO, and CFO of the company. His vision for “Perfect Integration” for pharmacy systems puts the company at the forefront of the industry.
Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions
Health systems are rapidly moving towards fully embracing ambulatory pharmacy programs. The benefits are huge – both for patients and for the financial well-being of the health system. ScriptPro offers a complete end-to-end solution for ambulatory pharmacy operations (see diagram below). On the left, we show interfaces with the health system EHR to receive patient, prescriber, and prescription information. The return arrow shows how dispensing history is sent back to the EHR so a central record is maintained for the patient. Every other system – from robots, point of sale, mobile and interactive voice response (IVR) applications, inventory management, 340B split billing, meds-to-beds, third-party claims reconciliation, revenue cycle management, and more – is engineered to work within a comprehensive, unified system supported by ScriptPro.
Point of Entry to Point of Sale
From point of entry to point of sale, ScriptPro is your single-source Unified Platform – a fully integrated suite of nimble tech solutions. Incorporating robotics, workflow, pharmacy management, mobile apps, and more, you can run your entire pharmacy operations on this single platform.
