Publix Plans to Automate Specialty Drug Management Via RFID

RFID Journal

Publix—a southeastern U.S. supermarket chain with 980 pharmacy locations—has entered into an agreement with AmerisourceBergen to use AmerisourceBergen's RFID-based drug-management system, known as Cubixx, to track specialty pharmaceutical products at the retailer's pharmacies. The Cubixx system will allow the pharmacies to automatically track products that are billed only when used, such as specialty consignment items. (At this time, Publix is not providing additional details regarding its use of the Cubixx system.)
