ScriptCenter has expanded pharmacy access for Keesler AFB’s pharmacy by 28 hours per week.
In light of the pandemic, patient access to prescriptions is at the top of mind for pharmacists. Keesler AFB has recently expanded its pharmacy access without having to knock down walls or add additional staff. The base recently added a ScriptCenter prescription pickup kiosk to their pharmacy’s fleet of technology. By having another designated pickup location, the pharmacy can clear up congestion and add convenience for patients. Patients no longer have to stand in long lines to pick up their medication. Instead, they can pick up their medications adjacent to the pharmacy.
With expanded pharmacy access increased by 28 hours each week, patients appreciate the broader pickup time window. Now, instead of delaying picking up their prescriptions to find time during pharmacy hours, patients can pick up for themselves and their dependents when their schedule allows. On average, 30% of prescription pickups from ScriptCenter happen in the first 3 hours, and 40% within the first 8 hours.
