Orlando, FL (PRWEB) November 10, 2010
ASCP Annual Meeting and Exhibition – Talyst Inc. will demonstrate its InSiteRx™ Remote Dispensing System (InSiteRx) as an exhibitor this week at the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) Annual Meeting and Exhibition in Orlando, Fla. InSiteRx is placed at long-term care facilities and packages residents’ medication doses automatically, freeing nurses to spend more time on the floor with residents. The remote dispensing model is an option for pharmacies transitioning to uniform dispensing models such as weekly, daily, or automated dose dispensing as required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
Developed on a powerful foundation of hardware and pharmacy automation software, InSiteRx distributes medications in patient-specific multi-dose packages, right before a medication pass, reducing opportunity for error and virtually eliminating medication waste. The technology also dramatically cuts time nurses otherwise spend on mundane medication and administrative tasks. Creating satisfied nurses and facilities.
“Any opportunity we have to shift our efforts from busy work to focus on our residents – whether it’s by improving the actual quality of care we give them or just quality time we get to spend with them – we are grateful,” said Robyn Kline, LPN for Milner Community Health Care. “Talyst has given us back lost time.”
Talyst supports its partner pharmacies nationwide by successfully positioning them to grow their business and help their LTC customers improve quality of care by providing them with exciting, proven pharmacy automation technology. As one of the first medication management systems designed around the specific needs of LTC nurses and residents, the InSiteRx remote dispensing model enables pharmacist-approved, on-demand medication dispensing right at the facility. Remote dispensing is the least labor intensive short-cycle dispensing solution for pharmacies. It is the most favorable options for LTC facilities. Talyst is equipped to support all types of dispensing models, including central fill models, as they have done for several years.
“Our commitment to our customers – the pharmacists – and our continued focus on differentiation in patient safety, innovation and quality of care, has earned us the opportunity to service many leading healthcare organizations,” said Carla Corkern, Talyst CEO. “We want to make the transition to adopting the necessary technologies to comply with the shortened dispensing requirements as seamless and easy as possible.”
