37 Pharmacy Tech Innovations

From Vending Machine Pharmacies to Virtual Diagnosis Apps

— December 18, 2014 — Lifestyle
These pharmaceutical tech innovations range from vending machine pharmacies to virtual diagnosis apps that are being used by medical professionals across the globe. When looking at the pharmaceutical industry, custom medication deliveries and at-home health labs are saving the public time and money and are ensuring that mild medical problems are solved in a timely manner.

For those looking to treat more serious medical issues, modern pharmacies and clinics are focusing on patient comfort and convenience when it comes to their interior design concepts. Looking to the future, pharmacies like Belgrade's Oaza Zdravlja and London's Dean Street Express clinic are not only aesthetically striking but are also infused with modern technology that allows for easy check-ins and prescription orders while helping to decrease patient wait times.

In addition to interior design details, these pharmaceutical tech innovations also include virtual triage kiosks that allow patients to check-in to hospitals conveniently and without added wait time. This technology is also widely used in portable pharmacies and medical vending machines that make mild prescriptions accessible to the masses.
