[LISTEN] ATM pharmacies dispense chronic meds for chronic patients
Chronic patients in parts of Johannesburg and the Mangaung district now have the option of using ‘ATM pharmacies’ set up by Right ePharmacy to collect their monthly medication during the lockdown.
Right ePharmacy MD Fanie Hendriksz says the dispensary is only available for public health patients.
In the front it looks like a normal ATM but at the back we have got quite clever robotics that dispense and label the medicine...Fanie Hendriksz, MD - Right ePharmacy
How it works is that you actually get decanted by the healthcare professional ta your clinic or the clinics surrounding our ATM sites, so the healthcare professional identifies you as a stable chronic patient and then you are allowed to collect your medicine or next repeats from the ATM sites.Fanie Hendriksz, MD - Right ePharmacy
Currently we give the patients two months' supply and we have done over 400,000 repeats on our ATMs already and we have got about 40,000 unique patients...Fanie Hendriksz, MD - Right ePharmacy
