MedBox Develops Patent-Pending System for Storage and Retrieval of Prescription Drugs
Date:11/16/2011

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Nov. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MedBox (Pink Sheets: MDBX) (www.thedispensingsolution.com) announced today that they have filed a patent for their new biometric secure medicine storage and retrieval system.

This revolutionary system, nicknamed "MedBox Rx," allows patients to pick up their filled prescriptions from a convenient self-serve system that could be open 24 hours a day.

The process is as simple as it is ingenious: When a customer drops off a prescription at their favorite pharmacy, the pharmacist will ask if they want to pick it up at the counter (which means possibly waiting in line and being subject to the pharmacy hours), or pick it up at the self-serve storage system – usually located immediately next to the pharmacy counter. If the customer opts to pick up their medicine from the convenient self-serve system, the pharmacist will register the patient, which is a one-time process that takes about 2-minutes. When the order is completed the pharmacist will place the medicine in a pre-determined slot in the self-service storage system. The customer can return to the store at their convenience, swipe their ID Card, place a finger in the biometric fingerprint verification system, and the appropriate slot will be able to be accessed by the customer.

Dual redundancy and military grade security assures that the proper medicine is dispensed. A proprietary software program is incorporated into each unit to track and verify each transaction.

The units are built by MedBox's manufacturing partner, AVT, Inc. in Corona, California.

"Our systems are designed to provide benefits to both the store owner and the consumer," states Vincent Mehdizadeh, Founder and CEO of MedBox. "Retailers and pharmacy owners can reduce costs by utilizing an automated self-serve solution, and customers will enjoy added convenience with no wait times. The MedBox Rx system will play a significant role in the future of pharmacy retailing and we plan on having these units either in the test phase or fully deployed at well known pharmacies nationwide within a year."
