AdventHealth adds pharmacy kiosks
AdventHealth has added SpotRx pharmacy kiosks, to make it convenient and more accessible for patients to fill prescriptions before leaving the doctor’s office.
The kiosks will provide acute and chronic medications, over-the-counter products, as well as creams, ointments, eye drops and test strips. The stations will not house controlled substances such as diazepam or oxycodone.
Patients insert a prescription receipt, and the kiosk dispenses the medication.
The SpotRx pharmacy kiosk currently is available at AdventHealth Care Pavilion Westchase in Hillsborough County, and another one will be installed later this year at AdventHealth Care Pavilion Heathbrook in Marion County.
With the SpotRx embedded pharmacy model, home delivery also is available.
AdventHealth Care Pavilion patients will receive:
- Convenience of immediate access to prescriptions
- Free contactlesss next-day home delivery for all prescriptions and over-the-counter medications
- Instant access to SpotRx pharmacists via kiosk or phone
- Coordinated care between clinic provider and the pharmacy ensuring quality of patient care
- Follow-up care calls from a local SpotRx pharmacist after receiving the prescription
