The innovative self-serve pharmacy kiosks will make it easy for patients to access medication faster than ever before.
TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- AdventHealth is now home to SpotRx pharmacy kiosks to make it convenient and more accessible for patients to fill prescriptions before leaving the doctor's office. The kiosks will provide acute and chronic medications, over the counter products as well as creams, ointments, eye drops and test strips. The kiosks will not house controlled substances such as diazepam or oxycodone. Patients insert a prescription receipt, and the kiosk dispenses the medication. The SpotRx pharmacy kiosk is currently available at AdventHealth Care Pavilion Westchase in Hillsborough County and will be installed later this year at AdventHealth Care Pavilion Heathbrook in Marion County.
"We are committed to making it easy for our patients by finding innovative ways to deliver health care that fits into busy schedules," said John Johannessen, Senior Executive Officer of Non-Acute, AdventHealth West Florida Division. "Our partnership with SpotRx provides another time saving convenience at our Care Pavilions so patients can get the care they need and not have to make another stop before they get home."
With the SpotRx embedded pharmacy model, home delivery is also available. AdventHealth Care Pavilion patients will receive:
- Convenience of immediate access to prescriptions.
- Free contactless next-day home delivery for all prescriptions and over-the-counter medications.
- Instant access to SpotRx pharmacists via kiosk or phone.
- Coordinated care between clinic provider and the pharmacy ensuring quality of patient care.
- Follow up care calls from a local SpotRx pharmacist after receiving the prescription.
AdventHealth Care Pavilions provide additional convenient access to patients by integrating multiple health care services into one location. The goal of the Care Pavilion is to focus on making health care easier to access while enhancing the overall patient experience.
"We are excited to partner with AdventHealth and expand patient access to our differentiated pharmacy solutions in Florida. We are additionally pleased to leverage our new hub pharmacy in Tampa to service these clinics," said Mark Doerr, Chief Executive Officer of MedAvail. "We look forward to serving AdventHealth patients through this collaboration and broadening our footprint in Florida where we see a tremendous opportunity and need for SpotRx."
