POWERS LAKE, WI--(Marketwire - Aug 17, 2011) - Pharmacy technology leaders Duane Chudy, TCGRx CEO, and Gene Fellows, Integrated and Automation Solutions CEO, announced a new partnership, CentralRx, to meet the growing industry need for a full service central pharmacy fill solution provider. This partnership provides pharmacies and healthcare settings a single turnkey provider for central fill consultation, design, equipment, implementation and service.

The pharmaceutical market has trended towards an increase in prescription volume and a shortage of pharmacists. Creating central pharmacy fulfillment centers that can accurately fill the increased prescription volume and expedite the pharmacist medication check process is an immediate need. CentralRx will provide central fill solutions for prescription filling, pharmacist checking, and sorting at a single location, followed by delivery to patients' pharmacies or mailing to patients' homes.

CentralRx customers benefit from the combined expertise of the TCGRx (TCG) and Integrated and Automation Solutions (IAS) teams. TCG CEO Chudy stated, "The synergy of the partnership is that we can reduce the footprint of the central fill system and deliver the best solution at a lower cost."

"Recognizing the market demand, we realized there had to be a better way to provide and service central fill systems cohesively from start to finish. Duane and I have worked parallel to one another throughout our many years in the industry and determined it was time to combine efforts to provide the most effective central fill solution on the market," said Fellows, CentralRx Partner.
