With all of the innovation in snack vending machines and drink vending machines, we were bound to see someone come up with the idea of prescription drug vending machines. In England, two types of the prescription drug dispensing machines are proposed to be introduced. There is currently one model being tested in West Sussex Sainsbury grocery stores. The reason behind the design? They’re supposed to make customer waiting times go down dramatically. Although the machines are to be available in addition to tradition counter service, it’s possible to get everything you need without direct human contact. The second prototype will be piloted this winter in English hospitals, with the hope that the machines will help patient get their medicines out of hours or in remote areas. This model has a videolink option so the pharmacist and patient can see and talk to each other. The pharmacist can use the cameras to check the prescription. The cameras photography it and the images appear on their computer. After the pharmacist has check the script, reviewed the patient’s full medical history, seen proper identification, and has take any necessary payment, they can authorize the machine to dispense the drugs, which are stored inside.
