MedPoint partners with Cegedim
We’re delighted to announce that MedPoint machines seamlessly integrate with Cegedim solutions.
Our partnership supports Cegedim with their long-term strategy to outline a vision for fully integrated community-based healthcare.
The integration, which uses QR codes within Cedgedim’s Pharmacy Manager, removes the need for manual prescription bag scans when loading a MedPoint. This optimises the overall efficiency of pharmacy teams, increases productivity, and reduces the amount of time spent on admin.
Pharmacists can shift focus to providing more extensive care and professional advice to patients, due to time saved thanks to automation. Overall this can lead to increased delivery of care and the potential for additional revenue generation via new services.
Together our solutions deliver a convenient service for pharmacists and patients. Patients can benefit from 24/7 access to their medicines, outside of traditional opening hours and away from queues.
Adam Dennett, Managing Director, Cegedim Healthcare Solutions, said: “We appreciate a need for transformational changes to help pharmacies thrive. We believe that community pharmacies need to be recognised as the front door to health and an indispensable component of the urgent care pathway.
“We are confident that our new integration with collection robots and partnership with MedPoint and Pharmaself24 will allow pharmacists to spend more time delivering care, offering professional advice and improving their business and sales whilst delivering a convenient service for both themselves and their patients. This is an important step towards our vision for fully integrated community-based healthcare.”
Kevin Murphy, Co-founder & Clinical Director, MedPoint, comments: “We are delighted to be working with Cegedim Healthcare Solutions who are very reactive to customers’ needs. The integration has been seamless and the team has been helpful and flexible.
“The use of the QR code within Cegedim’s Pharmacy Manager ensures that there is no need for any manual scanning, saving pharmacists’ time and reducing footfall in stores. Cegedim has also been integrated into some of our freestanding collection points, the MedPoint Solo, further increasing convenience for all. The growth of technology in pharmacies is increasing rapidly due to the pandemic and the ability to have 24-hour collections is huge.”
