NuScriptRX deploys a bar-coded prescription drug dispensing model designed to increase patient safety, and reduce waste, costs and medication administration time while improving access around the clock.

“One of our challenges is providing prescription medications quickly and efficiently to new residents admitted after hours,” says Bruce Robertson, president of Sentara Life Care. “We will now have access to prescription medications at any hour thanks to NuScriptRX, and that will greatly improve service for new residents.”

NuScriptRX’s eMed-Stat™ system keeps frequently used medications on site at each Sentara Life Care location.

“This is a great partnership with Sentara Life Care,” says Jim Beaumariage, chief operating officer for NuScriptRX. “We look forward to working with this respected system to help improve medication safety and patient-centered care.”

NuScriptRX is able to reduce costs while improving medication access without the geographic limitations of the traditional courier-based delivery model. By deploying their proprietary eMed-Stat™ and PharmCom™ medication access and innovative communications technologies, NuScriptRX provides timely, cost-effective and safer administration of medicines to long-term care nursing facilities in eight states from one pharmacy center in Nashville, Tenn. This enables the company to provide a higher level of service and cost-saving solutions to customers through reduced drug waste and improved access to medication 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
