Express Rx Refills Available at Rite Aid

Author:

The Rite Aid in Narberth, Pa, is now home to a ScriptCenter prescription refill kiosk. ScriptCenter allows pharmacy patients to pick up their refills from a machine after the pharmacy closes or during busy periods at the pharmacy counter. ScriptCenter, which is safe and secure, was developed by Asteres Inc.

Before using ScriptCenter, patients must first enroll at the pharmacy and receive a confidential enrollment number to create a user identification name and password. Refill prescriptions are loaded into the ScriptCenter machine by pharmacy associates.

Phil Keough, senior vice president of pharmacy operations for Rite Aid, said, "Giving our patients an option to quickly pick up refills will help free up our pharmacists so they can spend more time with patients who need a consultation or additional help with their health care needs."
