Instymeds Dispenses InstyDrugs
It won’t be long before pharmacists are replaced by InstyMeds, vending machines that can be placed in clinics, hospitals, and doctors offices. The current model holds 100 different drugs and 8 to 22 bottles of each drug. It labels and dispenses tablets, capsules, inhalers, sprays, creams and ointments, suspensions and syrups. Using PC writing software, the physician merely enters the patient’s information. The patient then uses a touchscreen to enter name and date of birth, chooses a printed prescription or fills it there and inserts cash or credit card. Insurance companies are billed automatically for co-pays. Not only will this cut down on handwriting errors, it may cut back on pharmaceutical errors, as long as it is loaded properly.
