Modular Pharmacy Casework Systems Are Adaptable to Change
Businesses have used traditional or on-site built cabinetry (or casework) for years. However, as technology advances and companies seek to become more eco-friendly while remaining adaptable to changing requirements and expectations, there is a new type of casework rising in popularity.
Modular casework is engineered to best support the unique requirements of your environment, now and in the future. It can be used in a variety of pharmacy settings and has become a critical storage solution for healthcare facilities, thanks to its adaptability.
What Is Modular Casework?
Modular casework refers to cabinetry which can be reconfigured and relocated. It is similar in appearance to fixed casework, but it is different in function. Compared to traditional casework, modular casework is free standing, configurable and adaptable to change. This allows for more flexibility in changing floor plans and interior design layout.
Most movable casework is custom made with the intent to “set in place,” meaning you can place the casework wherever you want. With modular casework, there are no anchoring pieces required, which saves you time and provides a convenient, hassle-free installation process.
How Modular Casework Can Benefit Your Pharmacy
R.C Smith can fulfill all your modular pharmacy casework needs, offering multi-faceted benefits for your inpatient, outpatient, retail or central fill pharmacy.
Modular Casework Designed for Pharmacy
R.C. Smith Modular Pharmacy Casework has been engineered specifically to meet the demanding requirements of today’s active pharmacy environment. Order verification, unit dose picking, interfacing with pharmacy automation, patient consultation and compounding each place specific demands on the casework design and our experience of over 7,000 completed pharmacy installations provides significant experience to draw from.
Modular pharmacy casework also gives you flexibility in changing or modifying the floor plan and design of your office space. For example: If you are doing an office remodel, traditionally you would need to demolish the old, wall-anchored cabinets and get new ones installed. But that is expensive and time consuming.
By investing in modular casework, you can use the same cabinets over and over again, reconfiguring them as needed to adapt to your pharmacy’s changing needs. No replacements necessary! Modular casework can support your pharmacy’s needs through expansion, reconfiguration, addition of automation, departmental relocation, process improvement, or regulatory changes.
As mentioned earlier, modular casework is budget friendly. Instead of having to buy brand new cabinets with an office renovation, you are able to use the same cabinets you had before. And since modular casework is designed with the ability to be reconfigured and relocated, you can save money on remodeling.
R.C. Smith’s modular freestanding system can also be depreciated as furniture. This gives you the option to realize significant tax advantages by depreciating the product over seven years instead of 39. Ask your tax accountant for more details!
