Supervalu Pharmacies Launches ARx System
Supervalu Pharmacies, owned and operated by grocery retailer Supervalu, has announced the companywide deployment of ARx, a pharmacy management system.
According to Supervalu, designed, developed, and tested by Supervalu pharmacists and technicians, ARx streamlines pharmacy workflow and operations. ARx introduces new technologies such as prescription label imaging and thermal printing. The application also features process enhancements which include a fully integrated electronic prescribing, or e-prescribing, module which provides a safer, more efficient method for prescription delivery, the company said.
Chris Dimos, president of Supervalu Pharmacies, said: "Supervalu Pharmacies is committed to the concept of empowering our pharmacy teams to provide convenient, personalized pharmacy care. By equipping our pharmacies with the innovative technologies included in ARx, we are providing our pharmacists with greater opportunity to apply their expertise as medication experts and develop creative solutions to common health conditions."
