With today's steady prescription growth and a widespread pharmacist shortage, many pharmacy operators are looking for new and creative ways to handle prescription fulfillment. Pharmacists are looking for innovative solutions to help them:

  • Reduce labor productivity costs
  • Free up pharmacists' time
  • Maintain the important patient relationship

Central Fill, a widely accepted industry solution, is designed to address these exact needs.
Using Central Fill, national retail chain pharmacies can aggregate prescriptions from multiple locations and funnel them to a centrally located prescription fulfillment center. Once there, prescriptions are assembled, verified, packaged, and are delivered to patient-ready back to the originating pharmacy or mailed directly to the patient's house.

Central Fill is not a "one size fits all" product. McKesson offers a wide range of Central Fill solutions for pharmacies of all sizes. Because of Central Fill's flexibility, pharmacies can combine both Central Fill and in-store automation to maximize efficiencies for all site locations and volume levels.
