Talyst, a leading pharmacy automation firm has entered into a vendor agreement with the fourth largest pharmaceutical wholesaler in the nation, H.D. Smith, for providing high quality and patient safety enhancing automation solutions for the Pharmaceutical industry’s extended care and acute customers.
Even as major market demand shifts are being experienced by pharmacy and healthcare industries, H.D. Smith persists in providing tools for anticipating and foreseeing these alterations. This partnership would help H.D. Smith to further its proactive approach to satisfy the needs of their customers and also help them to deliver high quality solutions for their customers.
The pharmacy automation technology developed by Talyst would offer inventory tracking and extra controls in the pharmacy, and also provide a base for enhancing patient safety using barcode administration practices. Distributing Talyst technology across all H.D. Smith’s distribution centers would be of great benefit to the facilities and pharmacies. According to Jeff Greer, who is the Vice President, National Accounts of H.D. Smith, this joint venture would be beneficial for pharmacies to improve their end-to-end supply chain, right from the wholesale dealer to the patient’s bedside. Workflow efficiency and patient safety would increase greatly. Carla Corkern, who is the Chairman of the board and CEO of Talyst, states that the partnership would help pharmacists to attain a superior performance level, which would motivate constant improvement. The company’s automated dispensing products would aid pharmacies to get ready and be organized for the future changes in Healthcare Reform by doing less with more.
