Increasing Adherence from Asteres

Medication non-adherence following a hospital discharge remains a pressing concern for healthcare systems.1 Common contributors to non-adherence include patients’ failure to fill discharge.2 Increasing accessibility to discharge medication is an important step to increase adherence to medication regimens.3

Utilization of a ScriptCenter Kiosk at the time of a patient discharge can have a positive impact on medication access and adherence. 

Asteres is the industry leader in 24/7 automated pharmacy pickup. They develop the ScriptCenter kiosks and lockers for the secure and safe pickup of prescriptions and healthcare products. ScriptCenter allows the pharmacy staff to maintain control of filling and checking prescriptions, while Asteres takes care of the secure storage, tracking, pickup, and payment of your pharmacist-filled prescriptions.
