Pharmacy Automation For Any Volume Pharmacy

Capsa’s pharmacy automation represents a wide range of technologies. Our prescription-filling technology features Kirby Lester-brand counting systems that efficiently handle exact prescription processing and record-keeping in busy pharmacy settings, plus anywhere an exact inventory count of tablets/capsules is needed (even manufacturing settings). Capsa’s pharmacy automation lineup also includes RoboPharma high-volume fully automated central filling and mail order/digital pharmacy systems, and solutions for patient prescription processing and pickup. Capsa’s pharmacy automation helps secure controlled medication handling, and tighten inventory processes in pharmacies of all types and volume across Canada. When every DIN needs to be double-checked against the patient script, when every controlled medication pill must be accounted for, and when labor costs must be scrutinized for business success, you can count on Capsa’s automation.

Kirby Lester KL1Plus Pill Counter

The KL1Plus is like 4 tools in 1 for pharmacy dispensing, in one small device. 1) the KL1Plus is based on the same counting technology as the trusted KL1. 2) KL1Plus prevents wrong strength/DIN/patient for 100% of scripts (oral solids and unit of use). 3) KL1Plus is your proof against customer disputes since each fill is stored for up to 10 years. 4) KL1Plus is your inventory solution to maintain tight control (especially controlled substances).  So much more than just a pill counter, this is your safeguard against prescription filling errors and customer discrepancies. Suitable for any volume or size community or outpatient pharmacy.

  • Forces a check for all medications and DIN before counting; KL1Plus software alerts the technician to a potential error (wrong med, strength, or quantity)
  • Orders are verified and filled in less time than traditional hand-counting (14.3 seconds faster (avg.) than hand-counting for a 90-count Rx)
  • Completed prescriptions can be retrieved for up to 10 years
  • “Directed Dispensing” ensures all pharmacy staff follow designated controlled medication procedure
  • Biometric finger scanning for user and time tracking
  • Complements any robot (like the Kirby Lester KL-SR) since it manages the Rx filling of all orders not handled by the robot, for 100% counting & scan-verification

Central Fill/Central Fulfillment Pharmacy

RoboPharma is the industry leader for central filling automation with a unique model that focuses on speed, efficiency, and reliability. RoboPharma individualizes each system to manage every step from when the pharmacy submits a patient’s repeat prescription directly, to when the completed order is shipped back to the pharmacy for patient pickup. A RoboPharma build-out efficiently fills hundreds to thousands of prescriptions per day at a remote location in a hub-and-spoke model. Our technology is expandable as your volume grows, is  significantly faster than other robot-arm designs, and has an amazing uptime record.

Mail Order Pharmacy/Digital Pharmacy

In global regions where prescription orders can come directly from the patient or a dedicated website, a RoboPharma digital pharmacy solution would receive the patient order, process it, and deliver directly to the patient. This is an end-to-end solution similar to the central fulfilment pharmacy solution except that orders are received from a public patient-dedicated web platform and not from a network of retail pharmacies.
