Patient-facing kiosks automate prescription dispensing

dIgitalhealth

Kiosks are popping up in doctors’ offices and hospitals for patient registration, patient education and similar forms of data entry and dissemination. Behind the scenes, automated medication cabinets dispense bar-coded medication dosages to authorized healthcare professionals. Now, at least two companies have combined the two technologies to create self-service, medication-dispensing kiosks for consumers.

The machines represent a fast, convenient way of dispensing prescription drugs at pharmacies after hours, in community clinics with limited staffing and in rural locations that lack pharmacists. They also can free up pharmacists from the drudgery of counting pills to allow for more direct patient counselling.
