Better Together, Parata and TCGRx Offer New Solutions in Pharmacy Automation at Mckesson ideaShare 2019

United Company to Showcase Updated, Scalable Options for Pharmacy Growth 

Since merging in December 2018, Parata Systems and TCGRx are poised to display their biggest tradeshow booth to date, one built to showcase several unique pharmacy automation and workflow solutions designed to delight attendees and vendors at ideaShare 2019.

Hosted in Orlando, Florida, McKesson ideaShare is one of the nation’s leading trade show and continuing education conferences for independent pharmacies.

“We’ve planned a space to share and demo our MVPs, whether originating from TCGRx or Parata,” said Mark Longley, EVP of Sales and Marketing. “There are new ways to look at some of our legacy products and entirely new solutions designed to set the retail independent pharmacy apart from the competition.”

Attendees will be treated to a sneak peek of Parata Max® 2 during the tradeshow. The updated second generation of Parata’s vial filling robot, Max 2 promises several enhancements such as a sleek profile, verification camera, improved easy-to-use software, and incorporated automatic canister calibration.

Workflow and patient experience solutions are also set to impress attendees. Uniquely designed inventory management system Beacon® is planned to showcase efficiency in pharmacy workflow, not just via technology but also in its thoughtful use of space. WellSpotTM prescription pick-up locker and Parata SpotLight™ wireless light-guided will call system enhance the customer experience by reducing wait times at pick-up and providing convenience for patients.

For medication adherence solutions, familiar pouch packagers ATP2® and Parata PASS 208® will be on the tradeshow floor. For attendees seeking blister packaging solutions, SmartCardRx™ is a multi-dose blister adherence system using light-to-fill guidance and barcode technology to help facilitate the efficiency of blister card filling. SmartCardRx enables the pharmacist to fill up to four cards per patient, or four patients per tray, using a unique barcode system and patented fill-to-light technology for improved productivity, accuracy, and safety.

Several complementary loading, splitting, and inspection technology products are also set to join the lineup. Booth visitors can witness Parata Perl ® Pouch Inspector’s newly-added capability to inspect both PASS and ATP® pouches. With the PASS Canister Build Kit, attendees will get first-hand experience in the versatility of PASS smart canisters, similar to ATP2 canisters.

Attendees can expect to see demonstrations of Parata’s vial filling robots Max® and Mini® solutions, long regarded as best-in-class for their accuracy, speed, and security.

Pharmacy teams can discover everything new Parata has to offer at ideaShare booth # 2400.
