20WAYS TO IMPROVE PATIENT CARE & PHARMACY COST CONTAINMENT FillSafe™ Medication Security for Kirby Lester Robots WINTER 2014 I HEALTH SYSTEM • INFUSION 25 President & CEO: Garry Zage, R.Ph. Founded: 1971 Toll-free Phone: (800) 641-3961 e-mail: email@example.com Address: 13700 Irma Lee Court Lake Forest, IL 60045 Website: www.kirbylester.com Kirby Lester's KL60 and KL100 are the safest retail/outpatient pharmacy robots with the new FillSafe™ security system. FillSafe eliminates the chance of dispensing from the wrong cassette. Company Background Kirby Lester is a leading developer of tablet counters and robotic dispensing technology for community pharmacies. Kirby Lester devices significantly improve medication counting accuracy and reduce labor time associated with medication dispensing. Kirby Lester products can be found in more than 40,000 retail, hospital, specialty, and mail order pharmacies in more than 40 countries. Product Overview FillSafe is built-in peace of mind for technicians and pharmacists alike in retail/outpatient pharmacies. The foolproof FillSafe security system prevents dispensing from a cassette whose refill or return-to-stock was not authorized by a pharmacist. When any medication cassette is removed from the KL60 or KL100 robot, that cassette is automatically deactivated; reactivation is customized on the pharmacist's terms. For instance, the pharmacist in charge can set a certain time lapse for a cassette to be returned to the robot. Or a user can be forced to verify the cassette return with a fingerprint scan on the robot's biometric finger pad. Or the pharmacist-in-charge's fingerprint scan may be required for reactivation. Kirby Lester developed this new technology to prevent a user from bypassing the cassette refill process. Along with the FillSafe security system, Kirby Lester robots are equipped with multiple safeguards, including user fingerprint tracking, NDC barcode verification, 20+ reports for metrics, and keyed cassettes. The KL60 and KL100 robots balance the highest security standards with the fastest dispensing and most hassle-free operation of any pharmacy robot.
