Recently, Masonic Villages Pharmacy was among the first in the country to implement the ATP 2 Duo technology, which allows for both pouch and multi-dose blister packaging in one machine. The choice to evolve alongside the technology was an easy decision, as this state-of -the-art automation would be able to handle both their multi-dose blister and pouch packaging needs.
Due to high-volume workloads in the pharmacy, the efficiency that the new technology provided was essential. The automation allowed pharmacists the ability to utilize multi-med blister card packaging, multi- and single-dose pouch packaging, up to 480 canisters, the option to package by the batch, and flexible, easy-to-use software for a wide range of reporting. Today, the pharmacy is filling around 26,000 to 28,000 pouches a week and 100 blister cards a week.
