Saying that technology has made an impact on the pharmaceutical maxim is perhaps an understatement. All in all, technological advances have seen major alterations on how things were done in the field initially. Marking this innovation is a tablet counter.
Pill counters are an effective way of preventing drug abuse. Pharmacists can be able to give the exact number of tablets that patients need. This means no additional pills for use by other parties, which amounts to drug abuse.
To health facilities, these counters are effective because they reduce costs. Traditional methods of manually counting tablets could see a patient take with them an extra pill or two; tablets that they did not pay for. This in the long run, leads to additional costs. Thanks to the invention of the pill counter, patients get what they pay for and hospitals and pharmacies can reduce costs.
The tablet counter is pretty durable. The common material used to make it is steel. Steel is rust and corrosion resistant meaning that a counter can last for years without having to get a new one, well, only if there is a more developed tablet counter in the market and a healthcare facility needs an upgrade of the same.
With tablet counters, there is a sense of diligence from the people using them. Hospital management can assign one machine to one user and expect accountability. This is facilitated by the fact that each counter has a password and this ensures that only one individual has access to this machine. This way, they can be accountable for it.
When it comes to care and maintenance of the pill counters, it is as easy as dusting. The machine comes with a removable dust extraction system that is inclusive of rear and front manifolds. This feature is essential as it facilitates saving time during the cleaning process. Having said this, one should be careful when removing these manifolds.
In additional to this, the counter tablets are very easy to use. This translates to mean that users neither have to be IT professionals neither do they have to go through special training to operate these machines. The counters also come with a comprehensible manual that outlines the steps of mounting the tablet bottles and any other relevant information.
If a firm is yet to join in the revolution of using tablet counters, they sure are missing out on a lot. For more information, contact us.
