Employees and students picking up prescriptions know the renovation project at the UT Main Campus Medical Center Pharmacy is complete.
The project was implemented after Industrial Engineering Technologies (IET) was hired to examine the space and determine what changes would increase efficiencies at the Main Campus Medical Center.
After the analysis, IET’s report suggested additional space was needed to improve workflow at the pharmacy. Therefore, the area was enhanced from 400 square feet to 1,500 square feet.
Cindy Puffer, coordinator of managed care of pharmacy services, said, “This renovation shows the University’s commitment to our mission of improving the human condition.”
The new space features a medical therapy management area where patients can be privately counseled on their prescriptions.
An area also was built to accommodate future robotic technology, which will count and label prescriptions.
