PHOENIX, AZ (September 10, 2018) – CUBEX® LLC’s MedBank™ Medical Solutions, a leading provider of pharmacy and supply management technology, announced the introduction ofMedBank Mini and Tower, two newsolutions for healthcare facilities and institutionalpharmacies looking to reduce the legal and financial risks associated with controlled substance management. The MedBank Mini and Tower offer automated, DEA compliant safeguards for storage of controlled substances and other medications, alongside bi-directional integration with pharmacy information management and electronic medical records systems creating an automated, closed-loop workflow.
The company expects the MedBank Mini and Tower to revolutionize the process of first dose and emergency medication for non-patient specific needs in long term care facilities. The current method of accommodating these medication needs is through the use of low security carts or tackle boxes, which are hindered by manual processes and high rates of diversion, according to MedBank Medical Solutions president Michael Boivin.
“Rising acuityisa growing challenge within the long-term care market,” said Boivin.“Nursing facilities and servicing pharmacies havean increased need for safe and immediate access to medications, including controlled substances.MedBank Mini and Tower ensure security and adherence to federal laws, while drastically reducing the chance for medication errors.”
MedBank Mini and Tower’s compact,ergonomic design manages both controlled substances and supplies in one footprint, streamlining clinical workflow. Cabinets are custom configurable and adjustable, providing flexibility for formulary changes without having to swap drawers or reconfigure. The devicesfeature next-generation Smart CUBIE technology; tamper-evident pocketsthat allow for secure transport and restock verification between servicing pharmacies and facilities. This exchange process supports nurse replenishment as approved by State Boards of Pharmacy and has wider regulatory approval than any other solution in the long-term care market.
“Creating efficiencies within our pharmacy is key to our ability to provide our customers with the best possible service,” stated Mike Horosko, Director of Service at Hometown Pharmacy. “Since we’ve been using the MedBank solutions we have been able to automate many of the manual processes previously used with tackle box exchanges and improve medication availability to the facilities we service that are also utilizing MedBank.”
Amid the increase in opioid abuse, inventory control and regulatory compliance of controlled substances is a top priority for health care businesses. Companies are also seeking a safe, efficient and cost effective method for medication dispensing to ensure the best possible care for patients.
