Patient Safety The Medical Center Pharmacy uses a robotic system for prescription accuracy and patient safety. We have installed a robotic prescription dispensing system that can automatically fill up to 200 common prescriptions and the SP Checkpoint, which is a system that verifies other medications, such as liquid, or specialty prescriptions. SP 200® Robotic Prescription Dispensing System ScriptPro’s SP 200 is a proven and reliable prescription dispensing system that automates the repetitive, manual dispensing tasks most subject to human error. The SP 200, interfaced with the pharmacy computer system, delivers filled and labeled vials for up to 150 prescriptions per hour. The system contains 200 universal dispensing cells. It handles tablets and capsules of all shapes and sizes, and supports standard pharmacy vials. Because the system fills directly from the dispensing cells, there is no drug cross-contamination. The SP 200 also prints and applies the prescription and auxiliary labels, and delivers uncapped vials for final inspection using on-screen drug image verification. Bar codes are used throughout the process for accuracy and quality control. Pharmacists manage the dispensing process from prescription entry to approval of the finished product. SP Checkpoint™ SP Checkpoint is an interactive prescription verification, tracking, and management device that provides control over the entire dispensing process. With SP Checkpoint, managers and supervisors can access pharmacy operations, local or remote, and view the status of prescriptions in process. Workload and workflow can be managed on-screen in real time. Used at the point of dispensing, SP Checkpoint provides paperless prescription tracking and batching for each patient. SP Station® SP Station is a compact, interactive device for manually dispensing medications. The countertop unit integrates a touchscreen monitor, labeling device and bar code scanner to provide workflow control and dispensing accuracy. SP Station interfaces with ScriptPro’s SP Central Workflow System to display on-screen prescription status lists and automate the collation of patient prescriptions. It presents prescription labels after verifying that the correct drug has been scanned, ensuring labeling accuracy.
