We are excited to introduce Sona’s new SynMed robot!
What is the role of the new robot?
The robot’s speciality is filling personalized 7 day pill packs with efficiency and accuracy.
The robot is synced to our pharmacy’s management system, and has an automated process of preparing the packs using multiple checkpoints and sensors to ensure accuracy.
Quick Robot Facts:
- – 5x increase in production speed means patients will get their medications quicker
- – Barcode scanner and detection sensors for quality control
- – Manages inventory and checks expiration dates on all drugs for patient safety
Once the process is complete, a Sona pharmacist checks every pill pack to ensure accuracy.
What Are 7 Day Pill packs?
A 7 day pill pack is a type of packaging that help patients keep track of when they need to take their medications.
This packaging option is one of the most effective ways to help patients adhere to their drug regimens.
97% of patients with this packaging completely adhere to drug regimens (compared to only 61.2% of patients without it).
Each pack has a patient photo, along with information on the drug, and when to take each pill. The new robot will help us get these personalized packages to our patients quickly!
How will the robot benefit our patients?
With the robot helping prepare these pill packs, our pharmacists and technicians will have more time to develop relationships with patients!
By spending time with one another and getting to know each patient’s health, we can make a big impact in the lives of our customers.
Overall, this new addition to the Sona team will help us deliver quality, personalized care to our patients.
We are excited about achieving better results with the new robot at Sona!
