MedifriendRx® prescription kiosk is now up and running in our brand new location inside the Urban Inter-Tribal Center of Texas Clinic. The medifriendRx® prescription kiosk allows patients to pick up their medication without having to leave the clinic. There are many benefits to having a prescription kiosk located in the clinic including but not limited to the patient receiving immediate access to their medication and increased compliance.
The machine stands 6ft tall, weighs approximately 600 pounds, can store between 350-400 drugs, and provides all of the care of a pharmacy without the usual cost. If patients have questions about their prescription? Don’t worry, real-time consultations are offered through a video monitor and a private phone attached to the kiosk.
MedifriendRx® is proud to be affiliated with the Urban Inter-Tribal Center of Texas (UITCT), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that has a successful 46-year history of providing culturally-sensitive, community-based services to meet the diverse needs of over 76,000 American Indians/Alaska Natives living in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
“I am very pleased with our new location and the changes we made in providing a better patient experience. Showing our ability to not only provide a product to our clients but also our knowledge and services. The future of pharmacy shouldn’t be only focusing on making things faster, but making experiences better. Our kiosk helps in building a stronger relationship between the Pharmacist, Patient, and Provider. Urban Inter-Tribal Center of Texas is a great representation of what is possible. We originally created this product to help under-served communities. I hope we can expand in these communities throughout Texas and the United States.” – Max Iantorno, CEO medifriendRx®
