Automated collation solutions for high volume pharmacy automation in central fill and mail order locations.

iA’s SmartCollator enables central fill or mail order pharmacy providers to streamline the collation of prescriptions in a small, efficient footprint. iA’s robotic collation solution performs bar code scanning across all vial and bottle labels at the collation input area and during the collation queuing process to ensure the right medications are collated together. iA’s SmartCollator can grow as needed with any central fill or mail order pharmacy and is interoperable with any pharmacy automation solution.

Streamline High Volume Workflow

iA’s SmartCollect was created to increase prescription throughput for central fill and mail order pharmacy providers.

Automated Scanning and Collation of Prescriptions

iA’s SmartCollect scans every label twice – once at input and again prior to placing a vial or bottle into a collation queue. Once the final item is received for an order, the SmartCollect robotic arm releases the order into an RFID designated tote, which then proceeds onto its next destination.

iA's intelligent enterprise pharmacy fulfillment software platform — NEXiA — is the technological foundation of our automated fulfillment solutions, connecting many aspects of the prescription fulfillment process — from prescription acceptance to delivery, across many different touch points. NEXiA manages prescription fulfillment, while continuously processing prescription orders in real time, evaluating constraints, and preparing orders to ensure prescriptions reach patients with optimal speed and efficiency.
