Arizona health care system to expand self-serve pharmacy kiosks
Banner Health in Arizona, which operates 28 acute-care hospitals, has selected the MedAvail MedCenter, a self-serve pharmacy kiosk, to enable remote dispensing of prescription medications, according to a press release. Banner Health will begin by deploying three MedCenters in its clinics and hospitals in the Phoenix area.
The MedAvail MedCenter dispenses first-fill and refill prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications under the full control of a remote pharmacist.
Banner Health currently has two MedAvail MedCenters installed in the greater Phoenix area, including Banner - University Medical Center Phoenix and Banner Behavioral Health Hospital in Scottsdale. A third is slated for deployment this summer.
