Sentara Healthcare, a not-for-profit health system in Norfolk, VA, has become an investor in NuScriptRX, a pharmacy management company.

NuScriptRX, which is based in Nashville, has an automated on-site eMedStat medication dispensing system and centralized pharmacy. The system helps improve medication safety, the company said.

“LTC residents can be admitted at all hours of the day and night, 365 days of the year,” said Dan Haron, CEO of NuScriptRX. “Our eMedStat computerized dispensing system stocks up to 380 medications, ensuring timely administration, improved satisfaction and a smoother work experience for employees based on the ability to provide medication from eMedStat for new admissions, new orders and stat doses within 60 to 90 minutes of order entry.”

Sentara Healthcare has become a 12% partner in NuSciptRX, which includes a seat on the board.

“We are exploring partnerships with game-changing products and services that will be in high demand in healthcare, and we believe NuScriptRX is one such partner,” said Bruce Roberston.
