Improved Prescription Filling Speed and Accuracy at Lakeview Pharmacy
As one of the only privately owned pharmacies in their region, Lakeview Pharmacy in Racine, Wisconsin processes prescriptions for both retail and long-term care customers.
Founded in the 1970s, the company has garnered a loyal customer base that contributes to the pharmacy’s average of processing 150 to 250 prescriptions per day on the retail end alone, operating six days a week. To ensure Lakeview’s pharmacy technicians – five working in retail and four in long-term care – could fill prescriptions at high speed and with high accuracy, the company sought a tabletop automation solution: the Eyecon® system by Avery Weigh-Tronix.
“Prior to Eyecon, we would hand-count all prescriptions, which can be time-consuming for large orders,” said Tiffany McWhorter, pharmacy technician at Lakeview. “Eyecon has expedited and improved the accuracy of our fill counts, and it serves as a convenient backup for prescriptions that must be double-counted.”
Eyecon is a prescription validation, counting and filling system designed to improve filling accuracy, customer safety and inventory management. Employing a unique Visual Counting System™, Eyecon was designed to keep up with challenging workloads, filling 100% of your prescriptions. Eyecon benefits pharmacy technicians as well – reducing tedium and stress while freeing up technicians to spend more time with customers.
