Pharmacist-owner Tom Gierwatoski opened Platte Valley Pharmacy in 2013, serving the patients of Platte Valley Medical Center in Brighton, CO. His pharmacy offers a bit of everything—prescription filling, compounding, gift items, and durable medical equipment. Gierwatoski says,
“By the time we were filling 120 daily prescriptions, I recognized we were going to outgrow our current staffing model. While 120 prescriptions is still a pretty low volume, it was the right time to start looking into pharmacy technology and automation. As a pharmacy owner, you have to consider not just where you are now, but where you want to be in the future.”
The future turned out to include the help of ScriptPro automation. In choosing the right company, Gierwatoski felt feedback from peers was key. He notes,
“I’d attend tradeshows and listen to robot customers at different vendor booths. ScriptPro customers came across as happy with their robot and spent their time talking to staff about additional products in the ScriptPro pipeline, rather than, ‘I’m having issues.’ There was a positive vibe, and I like how all their robots are still out working in the field—a one-time purchase versus a fill-in-the-gap product.”
With ScriptPro as its partner, it looks like Platte Valley Pharmacy has a very bright future ahead.
