Talyst, a leader in pharmacy automation systems, is moving beyond the booth at the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Expo taking place this week in Rosemont, Illinois. Groups of select pharmacists will go on site visits to Northwestern hospital pharmacy for an in-depth look at Talyst products in operation.
"For many pharmacists, there is nothing that compares to the value of seeing a fully-equipped and operational pharmacy," said Carla Corkern, Talyst CEO and chairman of the board. "We'll also be taking full advantage of the floor space at ASHP to exhibit our products that solve key issues pharmacists are dealing with today such as navigating 340B, controlling costs and ensuring the safety of patients."
Talyst's products, such as those implemented at Central DuPage and Northwestern hospitals, are designed to increase efficiency and reduce medication waste and errors. Edwin Weill, pharmacy informatics manager at Carolinas Hospital System in Florence, SC, found that since automating their pharmacy, prescription fills that used to take 14-16 hours can now be accomplished in one to three hours. Weill has also seen a 30-35% reduction in inventory.
At ASHP, Talyst is exhibiting its AutoSplit® 340B, a product that dramatically eases the processing of 340B claims. AutoSplit automatically processes and tracks pharmaceutical usage to help eligible healthcare facilities maximize the 340B contract portfolio.
Also on display at ASHP are Talyst's AutoPharm® software platform and its innovative AutoCool™ access-controlled refrigerated storage. The AutoPharm software platform allows pharmacists to manage medication inventory from arrival to delivery. AutoCool keeps all valuable refrigerated medications in a secure environment and dispenses them automatically.
Talyst has been building momentum this year, acquiring new customers in acute care as well as in new growth markets. Within the corrections field, Parkland Jail Health in Dallas, TX; the Allegheny Correctional Health System in Pittsburgh, PA; and Westchester Medical Center in New York State are the latest facilities to begin implementing Talyst products. Further, Wellfount Pharmacy in Indianapolis, IL is currently implementing Talyst's InSite™ Remote Dispensing System in the long-term care facilities it services.
Talyst's recent successes have been recognized through numerous industry awards including Inc. Magazine's "Inc. 500" list of fastest-growing U.S. private companies, the Deloitte "Fast 50" Technology Companies in Washington State, the Puget Sound Business Journal Fastest Growing Private Companies and the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce Eastside Business Awards.
