Collaboration Aims to Educate Pharmacists

APRIL 01, 2004

ChainDrugStore.net and Retail Management Products Ltd are working together to help reduce prescription errors across the health care industry. Retail Management Products' RxScan product line will use ChainDrugStore.net's online communication network to directly communicate information about its products to thousands of independent pharmacies and >185 retail chains and wholesalers.

The Department of Health and Human Services has reported that prescription drug errors injure or kill 50,000 to 100,000 patients annually, and these mistakes cost health care purchasers $177 billion each year. The RxScan solutions involve prescription verification and inventory management solutions as well as other software solutions targeted to benefit pharmacy and the public.

"ChainDrugStore.net is pleased to offer our unique connectivity services to RxScan Ltd, thereby helping pharmacies of all sizes to reduce prescription errors, improve efficiency, and, most of all, enhance patient safety," said Brad Mitchell, president and chief executive officer of ChainDrugStore.net.

"RxScan is dedicated to promoting accurate prescription dispensing. We design dispensing technology and processes with the goals of decreasing the number of dispensing errors that reach the patient, increasing pharmacy efficiency, and decreasing the time it takes to accurately dispense a prescription," said Max Peoples, RPh, president of RxScan Ltd.
