Industries & Markets We Currently Serve
In the pharmaceutical industry, there is no room for error. There is no time for second-guessing. There can be no lapse in performance. ARxIUM excels in this demanding environment because we only provide the best pharmacy automation technologies the industry has to offer and match those systems with our unique Pharmacy 4.0 approach to streamline the entire inventory management and fulfillment operation, successfully cutting costs, minimizing waste and boosting the overall safety and efficiency of the pharmacy.
To better showcase our expertise and capabilities, we have highlighted the top industries and markets we serve.
Hospital Inpatient Pharmacies
A hospital’s internal pharmacy is responsible for making sure prescriptions are precisely filled in a timely fashion. While the pharmacists, themselves, are medication experts, the technologies they employ must also be as accountable and reliable – if not more. ARxIUM’s Pharmacy 4.0 approach, combined with our top performing fulfillment systems, ensures that you get the most out of your pharmacy without sacrificing quality. And when a hospital’s pharmacy is used to its fullest potential, it can become a vital arm to the overall growth of the entire hospital.
A properly-operated outpatient pharmacy fills a rising need: quick prescription fulfillment with professional advising. These departments also act as a new source of revenue for some hospitals and medical facilities. As a hospital, owning your own outpatient retail pharmacy is one way to give your facility a profitable advantage over competitors.
You have the patient’s complete electronic medical records. Your staff will know the exact message that must be relayed to the patient. This improves the transition of care while ensuring proper medication use. And when an outpatient pharmacy has fulfillment technology it can rely on for the long-term, its team can continue to leverage its most invaluable asset: personalized attention to each patient. ARxIUM suits your facility with the hardware and software systems necessary to manage inventory, fulfill prescriptions, ensure quality, minimize human error and improve the overall patient experience.
Long-Term Care Pharmacies
The long-term care industry includes:
- Assisted living facilities
- Continuing care retirement communities
- Nursing homes
- Hospice care centers
- Pain management clinics
- Home care networks
While the diversity of services and target audiences can range greatly, there is a common need that must be met among the group: consistent, reliable prescription fulfillment.
No matter if your long-term care facility needs to fulfill 1,000 prescriptions a week or 100,000, solid pills and/or IV bags, we offer a network of fully-integrated and automated pharmacy fulfillment solutions, complete with both hardware and software technologies.
From federal health administrations to correctional facilities, each government-funded pharmacy has similar goals: reduce both costs and fulfillment times and decrease the bottom line without sacrificing quality of service. We have worked with a number of government pharmacies to automate prescription filling tasks and minimize waste. With Pharmacy 4.0, ARxIUM is able to assess the facility’s specific needs, implement the correct hardware to complete the tasks and integrate each system with the proper inventory management software to ensure a quicker and smoother pharmaceutical fulfillment process.
Specialty pharmacies are focused on the dispensing and delivery of medications for patients with
complex and/or chronic disease states. Typically these medications require special handling, have specific storage requirements, processing challenges, and other unique needs making them more costly than traditional formulary medications. These factors can lead to significant patient care and financial issues should an error in
prescription processing ever occur. Examples of the types of diseases addressed by specialty pharmacy include, but are not limited to:
- Crohn’s Disease
- Gaucher’s Disease
- Growth Hormone Deficiency
- Hepatitis C
- Immune Disorders
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Pulmonary Hypertension
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
Experts in Centralized Pharmacies
Across all segments of pharmacy, we have seen a trend in consolidation and centralization, which we expect to continue for many years to come. More and more Health systems and IDNs are moving towards a central shared services centres model, where the delivery of medications and supplies are managed out of a large, manufacturing-style pharmacy. In Long Term Care pharmacy providers continue to implement smart solutions to support multiple facilities from a central pharmacy. In the retail and mail order markets, we see continued growth for large central fill/manufacturing operations. The good news is, ARxIUM has deep experience in delivering a wide range of solutions that focus on end-to-end central processing. From consulting and inventory management to workflow and dispensing solutions, we are the right partner to support your plans for centralizing pharmacy services.
