We are extremely pleased to be able to partner with Banner Health in Greater Phoenix and extend the reach of their pharmacy capability throughout their network.

MedAvail Technologies Inc.™, a healthcare technology company that has developed and commercialized an innovative self-service pharmacy kiosk solution has announced an agreement with Banner Health in Arizona. Banner Health has selected the MedAvail MedCenter™ as its solution to enable remote dispensing of prescription medications. Banner Health will begin by deploying three MedCenters in its clinics and hospitals in the Greater Phoenix area.

The MedAvail MedCenter™ is an innovative self-service pharmacy kiosk solution that supports the dispensing of first fill and refill prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications under the full control of a remote pharmacist in a fast, secure, and convenient manner.

Through the self-service MedAvail MedCenter™, the patient can depart from the clinic or hospital with their required medication in hand and begin treatment immediately. This fast and convenient solution is expected to improve adherence and health outcomes.

Banner Health currently has two MedAvail MedCenters™ installed in the greater Phoenix area, including Banner - University Medical Center Phoenix and Banner Behavioral Health Hospital in Scottsdale with a third slated for deployment this summer.

Banner continues to demonstrate leadership by providing innovative solutions such as the MedAvail MedCenter™ with a goal to improve health outcomes while providing superior customer service.

“Our partnership with MedAvail has helped Banner Health to provide pharmacy services in spaces that have historically been too small for a retail pharmacy,” said Michael Young, Sr. Director of Retail Pharmacy Services at Banner Health. “Our latest deployment of Banner Rx Box, Banner’s branded MedAvail kiosk, in our Behavioral Health Hospital in Scottsdale will conveniently provide patients with their prescriptions at the time of discharge as part of our brand promise of Making health care easier, so life can be better.”
