The traditional prescription fulfillment process involves placing the medications and labels in a tray. Trays have a higher risk of contamination, spills, and medication mix ups. A label can be placed in the wrong tray or a tray may get misplaced. Additionally, trays do not really convey the urgency of an order, which directly hinders the organizational capabilities of a pharmacy.
Many pharmacies are switching to a more efficient prescription fulfillment approach. Bagging systems deliver a secure method for organizing and managing patient medications. Hanging bags take up less space than trays as well as provide a sealed, hard to spill location. They can used to easily manage a large number of medications from start of fulfillment to patient pick-up based on urgency.
