MedPoint are delighted to announce a new partnership with EDIA Healthcare in Ireland

The partnership reflects our joint commitment to ensure that pharmacies and dispensaries across Ireland increase efficiency and minimize error whilst embracing digital technology and supporting adaptation in a fast-changing healthcare environment.  We hope that, with this new partnership, MedPoint will be able to support more independent pharmacies to futureproof their businesses.

EDIA Healthcare were established in Northern Ireland in 2021 due to a demand for monitored dispensing system robots and pharmacy automation within the UK and Ireland.  Their ethos is to drive value for money and customer satisfaction whilst providing training to ensure users are equipped with the knowledge to utilise their new equipment to its full potential.

Over 2022 especially, MedPoint have gone from strength to strength recently surpassing the one millionth prescription item collected from a MedPoint machine.

What sets MedPoint apart from the rest?  British-made, MedPoint provides a safe, quick, and secure way for patients to collect their repeat prescription or medicine orders, 24/7.  Automating prescription collection through MedPoint gives patients convenience, whilst increasing customer loyalty and freeing up vital time to provide more extensive care and professional advice to patients, leading to a better delivery of care and the potential for additional revenue generation.  It also delivers a more convenient service for patients with 24/7 access to their medicines and no reliance on opening hours or queueing.

The unique, fully automated scanning system means loading prescriptions takes just a fraction of the time compared to that of other solutions currently on the market.  Safety has been dramatically improved, by virtually eliminating the chance of human error from hand-held scanning by staff.

MedPoint has helped many pharmacies to innovate and improve their business proposition and patient’s experiences already.  We’re excited about partnering with the EDIA Healthcare to help even more pharmacies to thrive during what is a challenging time for many community pharmacies, in turn saving Pharmacist’s time, money and hours across all aspects of their practice.
