Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2010
Talyst Inc. will demonstrate its InSiteRx™ Remote Dispensing System as an exhibitor this week at the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living Annual Convention and Expo. Talyst will show attendees the benefits of remote dispensing, a model that satisfies coming federal rules for long-term care (LTC) stemming from health reform - particularly as it relates to resident safety, operational workflow, and waste reduction.
The recently-passed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (March 23, 2010) mandates the use of specific uniform dispensing techniques, “such as weekly, daily, or automated dose dispensing” to reduce waste in this market. LTC facilities will have many options from which to choose to help them meet the new requirements, including the InSiteRx Remote Dispensing System by Talyst.
Given the many models designed to satisfy new regulatory requirements, Talyst will educate visitors on the ways in which its system solves the problems facing LTC. In addition to virtually eliminating medication waste, the system allows nurses to have more time with residents, ensuring a higher quality of care. InSiteRx caters to these guidelines by dispensing medications in patient-specific multi-dose packages, right before a medication pass, reducing the opportunity for error.
“We were trailblazers for the elimination of medication waste through remote dispensing well before health reform validated its relevancy,” said Carla Corkern, Talyst CEO. Now we’re hearing from pharmacies and partner organizations that facilities are stepping up to advocate for the technology – citing the positive impacts the new model will have on their business.”
Effective January 1, 2012, new weekly or automated dose dispensing model requirements will take effect. Talyst’s InSiteRx remote dispensing model is designed to virtually eliminate medication waste, a primary objective of the new health reform law. Talyst is helping its LTC partners understand the new requirements and prepare for them, while enhancing resident experiences and operational efficiencies.
