TCGRx Installs First InspectRx™ System for Medication Pouch Verification in Allcare Pharmacy

POWERS LAKE, WI--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2012) - TCGRx (TCG) announces the first installation of the InspectRx™ pouch verification device at Allcare Pharmacy in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.

Allcare Pharmacy has implemented the ShortCycleRx™ System using both the Automatic Tablet Packager (ATP) and the InspectRx system from TCGRx. The ATP generates medication pouches for long-term care patients, which are then passed through the InspectRx for imaging and verification of the contents. The InspectRx images both sides of the pouch for labeling and medication content, analyzes the shape, size and color of the medications and recommends pouches for further inspection. InspectRx's software is user friendly and easily directs the user through visual inspection and automatic sorting of pouches with analysis of possible labeling and filling issues. Pharmacist time is reduced dramatically and peace of mind is greatly increased with the knowledge that the right medications are leaving the pharmacy.

"InspectRx allows us to stay at the forefront of technology while increasing our pharmacy's efficiency and maintaining the accuracy we expect," said Allcare Pharmacy's COO Stephen Carroll. "InspectRx significantly reduced our pharmacists' time spent checking strip medications, therefore allowing them to focus on the patients' medication therapy."

Allcare Pharmacy has developed into one of the largest independent pharmacy service providers with ten locations throughout Arkansas. Allcare Pharmacy offers retail and nursing home pharmacy services, which include disease state management programs, ADA certified diabetic education programs, medication reviews, hormone replacement therapy and compliant packaging.
