How Geisinger Grew Its Prescription Mail Order Program With Pharmacy Automation

With more than 80 years of process automation expertise, Prescription Automation provides cutting-edge pharmacy dispensing automation, the innovative Sanitas Pharmacy Control System (PCS) software suite, and customized fulfillment systems designed and developed for today’s complex industry.

As the Industry leader in prescription filling automation, McKesson’s Prescription Automation can help you stay ahead of your competition, reduce costs, increase revenue, and stay compliant with ever changing regulatory requirements.

Prescription Automation does central fill any way you want

As a full-service provider, Prescription Automation provides comprehensive Central Fill services.

Central Fill as a ServiceTM is a value-added portfolio of products and services that addresses increasingly complex market challenges for its customers. CFaaS® is available for all pharmacies from small to large script volumes.

We provide our customers complete flexibility to provide central fill services any way they need them—either onsite at your location, or offsite at our McKesson owned facility!

If you process a large volume of prescriptions daily, Prescription Automation helps you build or customize your own onsite central fill facility equipped with a high-speed robotic system that can:

  • Reduce medication dispensing errors.
  • Deliver prescriptions to patients more quickly.
  • Free up pharmacy resources.
  • Spend more time counseling patients.
  • Improve operational efficiency.
  • Optimize financial performance.

Multi-Client CFaaS Solutions

For smaller volume prescriptions, you can use our Multi Client CFaaS facility where we do everything for you at an offsite location. We provide smaller to medium pharmacies with lower script volumes the opportunity to buy into a central fill product that allows central fill on a per-script fee. We assemble, verify, package, and deliver patient-ready medications from a central fill facility providing the highest level of automation and the lowest cost to fill.

Additionally, our controls platform is designed with integration flexibility in mind. If your facility contains existing hardware planned for integration with a Sanitas system, we support a wide variety of industrial network protocols (Modbus, EtherCAT, DeviceNet, CANBus, Profibus, etc.) and can also integrate systems using hard relays to communicate with legacy controllers.

We are proud of our reputation of consistently exceeding customer expectations. Representing decades of experience across many types of pharmacy automation, we provide consultation on industry-standard best practices, all while working with your organization to develop custom processes and software that integrates seamlessly with your business.
