MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, PerceptiMed announced that its pharmacy will call location system, scripClip™, has now safely processed three million prescriptions in the U.S. Since being placed into widespread availability last year, the scripClip™ Will Call System continues its rapid expansion across the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

Over three million prescriptions have been located and distributed to pharmacy patients, providing both faster and safer service. An estimated 3,000 safety incidents, based on pharmacy safety study statistics, have been averted through the use of scripClip™, including misplaced prescriptions, incorrect patient names, adverse safety events and HIPAA violations.

Bob Curry, PerceptiMed's CEO, commented, "Our scripClip™ product provides pharmacies with a customer facing solution for faster prescription pickup combined with improved safety. It's the rare pharmacy automation product that pharmacy customers can actually see in operation and tells customers that their pharmacy cares about both service and their safety as a patient. We are proud of reaching this milestone in having delivered our three millionth prescription."

The technology has also offered significant long-term savings in its use, helping pharmacists avoid potentially expensive or time-consuming mishaps as well as optimal inventory management.

PerceptiMed Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Terry Cater, R.Ph., stated, "2018 has been a significant year for scripClip™ industry acceptance and usage. scripClip™ has rapidly gone from the one million to three million mark in less than 9 months. The fast increase can be attributed to scripClip™ pharmacies achieving quick ROIs in only six to twelve months of use. The financial savings are a combination of better inventory management through enhanced return-to-stock protocols, higher customer retention rates and will call labor savings."
