Pharmacies often choose Parata PASS packaging as a tool to differentiate and grow their businesses and increase their prescription volume.
When they need to streamline the pharmacist verification process to keep up, they turn to Parata Check PASS: a high-speed, high-accuracy visual inspection aide that efficiently and safely identifies the contents of each PASS Pack.
Studies show that even skilled pharmacists’ ability to accurately inspect prescriptions declines as time, volume and distractions increase. Immune to these pressures, Check PASS ensures accuracy around the clock for safer, faster inspection.
• Parata Check PASS scans each pouch for pill quantity, size and shape. It reads a barcode printed on each pouch and compares the contents with batch information from the PASS packager. If something doesn’t match — the number of pills or the size and shape of a tablet — Check PASS flags the pouch for a pharmacist’s inspection and continues inspecting other pouches.
• Check PASS identifies pouches that need close attention from a pharmacist by batch, so they can be reviewed at one time. This creates a clean, predictable workflow for pharmacist verification and gives pharmacists more time for patient counseling and other responsibilities. Pharmacies have reduced verification time by as much as 75 percent with the use of Parata Check PASS.
• Check PASS captures and saves an image of every pouch it inspects, so you always have a visual record of each pouch’s label and contents. The image can be viewed within the Check PASS software for 30 days. After 30 days, archived images can easily be retrieved for review.
While other inspections systems require extensive set up, Check PASS is a quick addition to your pharmacy and processes. Our pill image library contains inspection parameters for more than 6,000 NDCs, giving you a head start on your formulary. Check PASS’s small footprint makes finding the right location in your pharmacy easy, and its interface with Parata PASS makes it feel familiar right away.
