REMEDI SENIORCARE OPENS STATE-OF-THE-ART PHARMACY IN OKLAHOMA CITY
New Pharmacy to Benefit Residents in Region’s Nursing, Rehabilitation, and Assisted Living Facilities
Baltimore, MD – May 4, 2016 — Remedi SeniorCare, one of the country’s leading long- term care (LTC) pharmacies, is pleased to announce the opening of Oklahoma’s newest state-of-the-art and most technologically advanced long-term care pharmacy, serving residents living in skilled nursing facilities, assisted living communities, and rehabilitation centers. The new 27,000 square foot facility is located at 4243 Will Rogers Parkway in Oklahoma City.
“With the number of seniors aged 80 and older expected to grow in the Oklahoma City region, Remedi SeniorCare’s expertise in innovation, technology and safety will better serve the changing needs of long-term care facilities and residents throughout the area,” said Remedi SeniorCare CEO Jeff Stamps, R.Ph. “Our customer-focused approach, along with our “nurse-inspired” technology, increases medication safety, while dramatically reducing waste and significantly cutting costs for our customers.”
As an industry leader, Remedi SeniorCare provides effective solutions in a complex healthcare landscape, including: cost management services, Electronic Health Record (EHR) integration, clinical and regulatory expertise, and sophisticated technology, including Remedi’s revolutionary med-pass system Paxit®, a fully-automated robotic dispensing technology.
In fact, Remedi plans a conversion to the innovative Paxit system in the Oklahoma City pharmacy in late 2016.
Remedi’s Paxit med-pass solution is the industry’s only fully-automated, medication dispensing system, delivering resident-specific, 24-hour, unit-dose medication with unsurpassed accuracy, reducing medication costs by 15 percent or more and increasing med pass efficiency by 30 percent or more. Paxit reduces inventory levels to just 2 days, eliminating the waste often associated with 30-day “bingo cards.” Paxit is the first and only medication dispensing system designed by nurses with the primary objectives of resident safety, nursing efficiency, and cost reduction.
Celebrating the Grand Opening of Oklahoma City’s Most Advanced LTC Pharmacy
Remedi SeniorCare will celebrate the Grand Opening of its newest Oklahoma City Long-Term Care pharmacy later this year with special events to include a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The Oklahoma City pharmacy location will employ between 30 to 40 trained staff members by summer 2016 with plans to increase that number to more than 60 associates by the end of the year.
