Robotik Technology UK Compliance Aid Automation

Compliance aid automation

Compliance aid dispensing has long been seen as a way to support patient concordance as well as increasing the number secure, repeatable NHS items. There are benefits for both patients and your business and are critical to the viability of some pharmacies. However, you will be acutely aware that the profitability of this type of prescription item is lower than most due to the relative levels of effort required to assemble and check the medicines.

In times of growing patient demand and increasing financial pressure it is not an option for many to stop dispensing this kind of prescription. Compliance aid automation can increase the profit you make from these prescriptions while freeing up time to grow sales in other areas of the business. Here we help you understand what compliance aid automation is, a little about the various solutions and our key tips on how the launch your project.


What is compliance aid automation?

As experts in pharmacy automation, Robotik Technology UK have developed the UK market in compliance aid automation. We have the answers you need. Compliance aid automation is the process of integrating machine led dispensing of medicines into compliance aids as part of your dispensary workflow. The machine will dispense, seal and even complete a preliminary accuracy check of medicines for up to 60 patients per hour.


What sort of machines are they?

There are a wide range of machines to suit your business in terms of scale and specification. We are always happy to talk technical details so get in touch if you are ready but let’s focus on how compliance aid automation will help initially.

Some jobs need the human touch, others you can safely leave to the robots.

You can choose a machine that dispenses traditional compliance aid trays which can be tailored to your specification and will integrate with your existing PMR. This type of machine is called Blisterpack.
