Benefits of 24/7 Pharmacy Lockers

Convenience for Patients

pharmacy pick up lockersSmart prescription pickup lockers improve patient experience by reducing wait times even when the pharmacy is closed. Patients can access the lockers 24/7. This eliminates long wait times or the need to adhere to specific store hours, making it more convenient for busy individuals to retrieve their medications quickly and efficiently.

This convenience makes patients more likely to pick up their medications promptly. This helps improve medication adherence, as patients are less likely to miss doses when they can easily collect their prescriptions. Plus, patients receive automatic notifications and reminders when their prescriptions are ready for pickup. This helps ensure they know their medication availability and can promptly pick up their prescriptions.

Improved Pharmacy Operations

Pharmacies can use smart prescription lockers to automate the prescription pickup, freeing staff time for more complex tasks. This can streamline pharmacy workflow and improve overall operational efficiency.

Pharmacies can also track inventory levels more effectively using smart lockers. With the ability to view real-time data on medication usage from the automated pharmacy locker system, pharmacy smart lockers can help prevent stockouts and overstock situations, leading to better inventory management and cost savings.

Safety & Security

Prescription pickup lockers offer a private and secure way for patients to collect their medications. Smart lockers allow for a contactless prescription pickup process, reducing the risk of germ transmission. Security features such as access control and remote system monitoring reduce the risk of medication theft.

Automation through smart lockers also reduces the risk of human errors in prescription dispensing and pickup. The smart locker system ensures patients receive the correct medications, ensuring patient safety and reducing errors. Visit our online store to see our healthcare storage products.

How Prescription Pickup Lockers Work

accessing pharmacy lockersPharmacy pickup lockers, also called prescription dispensing lockers, make medication dispensing and prescription pickup more convenient than ever. Here’s how this pharmacy smart locker system works.

First, pharmacy staff places the prepared medication into a designated locker within the smart locker system. The locker is secured and safe until the patient arrives for pickup.

Once the prescription is ready for pickup, the pharmacy’s system generates a notification to the patient. This notification can be sent via text, email, or a mobile app. The notification includes a unique pickup code or QR code. Automatic reminders can be sent to patients if they haven’t picked up their prescriptions within a specified timeframe.

The patient arrives at the pharmacy or designated pickup location to retrieve their prescription. After verifying their identity with the pickup code and paying for their medication at the kiosk, they are granted access to the specific locker containing their prescription. The patient retrieves the prescription from the locker and closes the door.

The locker system records that the prescription has been picked up, updating the pharmacy’s records and inventory management system. This documentation helps maintain accurate records and ensures the patient receives their medication.

Healthcare Testimonials

parkland hospital

“Southwest Solutions Group assisted us in the setup of equipment and services for our offsite medical record warehouse housing over one million charts. They have moved over 330,000 records from the main hospital to the medical record warehouse in a weekend time period, and converted thousands of charts for us. They have provided us a new chart tracking system, labeling system, and file conversion services over a multi-month process. Their IT group was able to modify our existing records management software to “talk” to our main software program so we could print color coded labels for our medical record charts. In addition, they have provided many other services to Parkland hospital including file shelving, hospital storage equipment needs, and software support. Southwest Solutions Group does exceptional work.”
