Parata's COVID-19 Response

Solutions for Long-Term Care Pharmacies

Pharmacy Automation and Technology are Next-Gen Business Tools
for the Long-Term Care Pharmacy

LTC pharmacies are challenged to provide accurate and safe medication in easy-to-use packaging for their customers and nursing healthcare centers. As the LTC landscape changes to accommodate an aging population, pharmacies are evaluating solutions to increase efficiencies in labor, workflow, and inventory management while delivering medications specially packaged to streamline medication administration.

Many LTC pharmacies find themselves at a crossroads — embrace automation or risk a failure to scale or expand services. Parata powers the long-term care pharmacy to help patients lead healthier lives. That’s why the LTC pharmacist counts on Parata.

We understand the challenges today’s LTC pharmacies face and the improvements you’d like to make 

Workflow Efficiencies and Improved Utilization of Labor
No matter the size or scale of your operation, efficiencies matter. We know busy nursing centers and their residents count on pharmacies to fill each script with safety, accuracy, and time in mind to keep costs down.

The LTC pharmacy must focus on production and continually improve processes to keep costs down while accommodating demand for shorter cycles. and rapid turns. That includes tracking inventory down to the pill, securing CII medications, and reducing wasted production steps.

Better Inventory Management
Mindful of waste and diversion, pharmacies are increasingly searching for reliable, cost-effective, and secure solutions for inventory management, reducing on-hand inventory. Accurate inventory management software helps you pinpoint your medications and save on inventory expenses. Technology solutions reduce floor space taken up by inventory by up to 60%. Stay organized and keep track of your inventory down to the pill while also optimizing the use of space in a busy pharmacy.
Customized Packaging
Gain and retain customers by providing packaging exactly the way they need it — whether blister, pouch, or both. While each facility may have its own labeling requirements, you can meet the challenge with ease. Create a library of designs to choose from and customize with graphics, time of administration settings, barcodes, and even color. Win over new business by demonstrating flexible options.
