Offering unprecedented accuracy in prescription pill verification and administration, the IdentRx automated medication-verification device dramatically improves patient safety within pharmacies, long-term care facilities and hospitals.
The system from PerceptiMed, a Mountain View, California firm, optically analyzes every single pill that will be given to a patient to make sure it precisely matches each prescription.
This macroscopic imaging capability captures and identifies all imprints, regardless of type ensuring that every single pill dispensed is the right drug, the right dosage, in the right quantity and from the right manufacturer.
The manufacturer company claims that the device sets the industry standard for validation with a 99.9% error detection rate. In a press release, it said that the technology seamlessly integrates with existing pharmacy management systems for quality assurance in every step from the prescribing doctor to the patient.
"Its small footprint requires no modifications to existing pharmacy layouts. The IdentRx automatic medication-dispensing system advances pharmacy operations, while saving time and money. All of which ultimately gives pharmacists more time to focus on their customers. Which is right where you want them to be," the company said.
