The System FAQ

How does MethaMeasure work?

It's simple. MethaMeasure was designed by a substance misuse pharmacist within his own pharmacy. The system focuses on patient safety, usability and speed. The process of using MethaMeasure is simple and involves three steps: Data Processing, patient identification and final verification. On average, it takes less than 10 seconds to identify a patient and have a dose dispensed ready to hand out. This means that a patient receiving one witness dose and six carries can be dealt with usually in less than 1 minute.

Are the pumps accurate?

MethaMeasure is extremely accurate. Our system is actually more accurate than many of the graduated cylinders, syringes and pumps used in pharmacies today.

Is the system cost effective?

It usually only takes a couple of "daily methadone patients" to cover the cost of the system and in most cases pharmacies find huge cost savings. To find out more please contact your local office by clicking here.

How many patients do I need to justify this system?

From our experience our system becomes beneficial to pharmacies who dispense to 15 patients or more, however this varies from pharmacy to pharmacy. While many of our customers use our system for large numbers of patients, we have some who use the system for less than 10.

Can the system be used for advanced preparation / remote dispensing?

This is completely possible. To find out more please contact your local office by clicking here.

Can the system be used to dispense liquid drugs, other than methadone?

This is also possible. Please contact your local office to discuss this further.

Our pharmacy management system is not listed, can you still provide integration?

Even if your pharmacy management system is not listed, we will be happy to look into the possibility of integrating with it. In the mean time, MethaMeasure can be used as a stand alone system - it usually takes a few seconds to enter a patients RX.

Will we receive adequate training?

An Installation and training specialist will install the system and train your pharmacy staff on how the system works. They will also stay while the system is being used to ensure everyone is comfortable. We do our best to accommodate individual pharmacies needs and always try to be as flexible as possible - working around you.
