Testimonials

The report tells me what I need to know, how many are expiring, where they are located and the name of the medication. I really like that I can run the report for 90 or more days because I order replacement medications 3-4 months in advance, plus my regular stock… so I know I won’t run out. Now instead of having to do a count by hand at the end of the month or so I check them in when I receive them and simply run the reports I need.

During various visits by the Ohio Board of Pharmacy, they have noted that they are impressed with how Jackson Township Fire uses the machine to control access to supplies. The UCapIt machine is the future of where EMS inventory control is headed, as everyone needs to watch expenses and inventory closely, to better adhere to budgets and departmental expectations.

If there is an incident overnight and a critical piece of equipment is needed, whether it breaks or it’s used on a patient, they will be able to get it immediately.

We will pay for the machine in 2 ½ years just based off of direct drug costs alone. That doesn’t take into account man-hours spent doing inventory prior to the machine.

Littleton has had their CAP dispenser for over two years and would be happy to share their success with you.
They are very creative at Littleton. This machine is used for controlled substance restocking for the EMS vehicles. But we are told they actually put a few snacks in the bottom row so the EMS staff can also get a yummy snack with their ID. We doubt the wives are getting automatic email alert notifications when their dieting husbands get a snack in the middle of the shift… but it’s possible to do. We can be as transparent as you want.
