MedAvail Technologies, a healthcare technology company that has developed and commercialized an innovative self-service pharmacy kiosk solution, has partnered with Banner Health to deploy three MedAvail MedCenters™ in its clinics and hospitals in the Greater Phoenix area. The MedAvail MedCenter™ provides an innovative solution that supports the dispensing of first fill and refill prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications in as little as 90-seconds.
The MedAvail MedCenter™ helps integrate all aspects of healthcare, allowing physicians to meet patients’ needs all under one roof. This allows physicians to see a patient, issue and fill a prescription all during the same appointment. Additionally, physicans can take patients to the on-site kiosk to submit their prescription, as well as answer any questions or concerns the patient may have before leaving the clinic — further increasing adherance.
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 with several other planned deployments this year.
