ScriptCenter Locker
sets to open in July

Written by: Northern Sentry
Starting July 12, the 5th Medical Group will provide the option of medication refill pick-ups via a locker system called ScriptCenter. The new feature will give patrons a secure and convenient way to pick up prescriptions.

Department of Defense beneficiaries at Minot Air Force base will soon have the option of picking up prescription medication refills from a secure locker system starting July 12, 2022. The locker system will increase accessibility while fostering good social distancing practices by decreasing face-to-face interactions and being located by other frequented areas on base. The 5 MDG Pharmacy staff are constantly looking for ways to help patients and increase convenient, reliable service. Each ScriptLocker can hold hundreds of prescriptions, with the exception of refrigerated medications, and allows the patient to pick up their medication on their schedule. Members can enjoy access to medication pickups over the weekend, after the Medical Group is closed, and all while going about normal shopping. This will also allow those individuals who require more assistance to experience shorter wait times at the clinic pharmacy.
Active Duty military, dependents, retirees and all eligible Department of Defense ID holders will be able to log in to the locker system with their ID or by fingerprint. This type of system is already used at approximately 27 other Air Forces bases. Due to successful implementation at these installations, the Military Health System plans to add more than 20 additional units at stateside and European locations over the next few years.
With amenities such as other common shopping locations, plenty of handicap parking, ADA approved entry into the facility, open seating areas and walking distance for the dorm residents the Base Exchange atrium area was chosen as the location for the new ScriptLocker.
