How One Pharmacy Doubled Its Prescriptions in Five Years
Corley’s Pharmacy, located in Greenville, TN, was able to double its prescriptions in five years with the same staff. For a local pharmacy, this is quite a feat. How did they do it? The power of robotics. After purchasing ScriptPro’s SP 200 CCC, the volume has doubled without the need to add staff. The compact size and onsite cell calibration made it an easy fit for Corley’s Pharmacy and helped right away with the pharmacy workflow. The pharmacy employees even named the robot “Phred” and are happy that Phred lowered the traffic behind the counter.
The owner, Alan Corley, is in a better place. Not only is he filling prescriptions at a volume that he couldn’t even imagine five years previously, his pharmacists now have more time to spend with their patients. Without spending pharmacist time filling prescriptions, they can now focus on servicing customers and answering questions about medications. Now, Phred is a valuable member of the staff.
