AdventHealth rolls out medication kiosks in Florida
- AdventHealth has partnered with SpotRx Pharmacy Technologies to launch two pharmacy kiosks in Hillsborough and Marion counties
- The kiosks aim to reduce waiting times between the time you are prescribed a drug and the time you can pick it up at the pharmacy.
- A home delivery service has also been rolled out, increasing patient access to life-saving medicines
AdventHealth, one of Florida’s largest healthcare providers, has partnered with SpotRX to launch two pharmacy kiosks in Hillsborough and Marion counties. The pair of kiosks aim to reduce wait times for prescriptions and increase accessibility for those in need of medication.
Kiosks will provide acute and chronic medications, over-the-counter products as well as creams, ointments, eye drops and test strips. Kiosks, however, will not house controlled substances such as diazepam or oxycodone.
“We are committed to making life easier for our patients by finding innovative ways to deliver healthcare that fits into busy schedules,” said Jean Johannessen, Senior Executive Officer of Non-Acute, AdventHealth West Florida Division. “Our partnership with SpotRx provides another time-saving convenience in our care lodges so patients can get the care they need and not have to make another stop before heading home.”
Along with kiosk services, patients can now use the integrated pharmacy model to request home delivery services. Using the model, those seeking treatment through AdventHealth patients will receive immediate access to prescriptions, next-day home delivery for all prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, and instant access to SpotRx pharmacists through a kiosk or by telephone.
“We are excited to partner with AdventHealth and expand patient access to our differentiated pharmaceutical solutions in Florida. We are further excited to leverage our new Central Pharmacy in Tampa to service these clinics,” said Mark Doerr, CEO of MedAvail. “We look forward to serving AdventHealth patients through this collaboration and expanding our footprint in Florida where we see tremendous opportunity and need for SpotRx.”
