Talyst Supports Short-Cycle Dispensing Alternatives at ASCP and NCPDP Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 7, 2010 - ASCP/NCPDP Industry Meeting - Representatives from Bellevue, Wash.-based Talyst Inc., the leader in pharmacy automation systems, are participating in discussions hosted by the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) and National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) on best practices for complying with impending federal rules for reducing medication waste in long-term care settings. Talyst supports long-term care facilities and pharmacies nationwide with its InSiteRx™ Remote Dispensing System. It is the first medication management system designed to meet the unique challenges of long-term care, enabling timely, pharmacist-approved, on-demand medication dispensing right at the facility. It is expected that new rules issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will require alternative dispensing methods to reduce medication waste in long-term care, a move that is projected to save $6 billion in healthcare costs over the next 10 years. The rules are scheduled to take effect January 1, 2012.
