Millennium Pharmacy Systems Invests in Advanced Technology from TCGRx for Enhanced Accuracy and Patient Safety

Millennium Pharmacy Systems chose TCGRx due to the technology advancements with their ATP Series and later the InspectRx machine to increase their patient safety, speed up the fill times, as well as increase the accuracy of every script filled.

 State-of-the-Art Pharmacy Automation System Tracks Medications from Pouch to Patient

Millennium Pharmacy Systems, one of the premier long-term care pharmacy service provider in the U.S., has invested in the latest technology from the Chudy Group (TCGRx) as part of their culture of continuous improvement. Working with TCG has enabled Millennium to optimize patient drug safety by employing the industry’s only closed loop pharmacy workflow solution. Millennium selected TCGRx because of their ability to deliver the most technologically advanced system available in the market.

Initially, Millennium implemented the Automated Tablet Packaging (ATP) system with SmartTrayRx™, which uses proprietary fill-to-light technology to dramatically improve the accuracy and speed of filling oral solid medications. For Millennium, this system works hand in hand with its advanced medication administration system which uses bar-coding technology to provide their customers a safe, accurate, and efficient way to administer medication. Millennium later added TCG’s InspectRx™ pill inspection system, which conducts an electronic 12-point imaging analysis of medication pouches—including size, shape, color and quality—to reduce the potential for error by tracking every medication from pouch to patient. The system also provides Millennium with the ability to recall images of every medication pouch sent to a facility, verifying that the proper meds were sent to the proper patient. InspectRx is an important diagnostic, verification and pharmacist assisting technology that allows the pharmacy staff to resolve potential issues proactively.

According to Jeffrey Newell, RPh, Millennium’s Senior Vice President Operations and Chief Compliance Officer, “Millennium prides itself on being a technology driven long-term care partner, and the sophistication of TCG’s solution has enabled us to elevate patient safety to a whole new level. TCG remains at the forefront of technology, enabling us to provide our patients with unprecedented levels of safety, accuracy and efficiency.” Lena Sturgeon, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical and Relationship Officer commented, “Ultimately, this enables Millennium to deliver the right drug, to the right patient, at the right time, for the right price... with complete confidence.”

TCG is committed to utilizing cutting-edge technology to design pharmacy automation systems that intelligently optimize workflow. Duane Chudy, President/CEO of TCGRx, stated, “We are pleased to be able to support Millennium in their mission to be the industry leader in providing pharmacy and clinical solutions to improve patient care, compliance and financial results. TCG also shares Millennium’s vision of transforming healthcare solutions to improve people’s lives.”
