OnSiteRx® Launches First for Arizona: Automated Drug Dispensing in Nursing Home
Date:2/16/2012

DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- OnSiteRx®, Inc. (http://www.onsiterx.com), parent organization for OnSiteRx® of Phoenix, LLC, in partnership with Covenant Health Network, announces today that they have successfully implemented the first automated drug dispensing system to operate in a long-term care facility in the state of Arizona.

"It is not often when healthcare can increase patient safety and lower medication cost," states Dr. Reef Gillum, Founder and CEO of OnSiteRx®. "This is a giant step for healthcare in Arizona. The system transforms a 30-year-old antiquated process by providing daily dispensed, individually packaged, pharmacist-reviewed medication within minutes, significantly increasing safety, decreasing drug waste and improving documentation."

OnSiteRx's ODS™ (OnSiteRx Dispensing System™) was fully operational at the Christian Care Nursing Center in Phoenix, Arizona on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. Through its own patent-pending web-based software application, the system remotely communicates to a dispensing packager positioned in a secured location at the facility. OnSiteRx's local pharmacy closely monitors and supplies the inventory within the packager, and handles all emergency deliveries for the facility as well.

Matt Luger, CEO of the Phoenix-based non-profit organization Covenant Health Network, states, "This new model of medication administration will revolutionize the way pharmacy services are provided in senior care settings. First dose orders can be processed and are available for the nursing staff to pass immediately, rather than having to wait hours for an off-site pharmacy courier to deliver. Medications are dispensed and the facility or resident is charged only as used, rather than a week or month in advance. Nursing staff time saved, due to the reduction in the length of each med pass, can be re-directed to more resident-focused functions."

OnSiteRx's system incorporates controls and reporting capabilities to ensure the highest level of regulatory compliance for the residents' safety. Through this method of dispensing medications, the system will reduce cost to residents and insurance providers, can reduce the opportunity of facility errors, and reduce the thousands of dollars of drugs currently destroyed by each facility every month.

OnSiteRx®, Inc. also owns and operates pharmacies in Texas and Pennsylvania and plans to extend its footprint into additional states.
