Pharmacists need innovative solutions to help them reduce costs and focus on patient care.

Using Central Fill, pharmacies can aggregate prescriptions and funnel them to a centrally located prescription fulfillment center. Once there, prescriptions are assembled, verified, packaged, and delivered patient-ready back to the originating pharmacy or mailed directly to the patient.

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.

Pharmacy owned and operated Central Fill solutions can be custom designed based on:

  • Current and future prescription volumes
  • Prescription mix (new vs. refills)
  • Prescription turnaround requirements

McKesson owned Central Fill solutions are also available with little to no upfront cost.

Central Fill as a Service™ (CFaaS) is a McKesson-operated, centralized solution that allows pharmacies to use Central Fill without the investment in equipment, inventory, or staffing (other than a pharmacist).

Instead of the traditional central fill model that requires significant upfront investment, CFaaS is available to customers through a per-prescription fee that can dramatically reduce the pharmacy’s per-prescription cost to dispense.
