About CAPS®

   

Take the worry out of your daily compounding needs

Central Admixture Pharmacy Services, Inc. (CAPS) is the nation's largest network of outsourcing admixture pharmacies. A pioneer in the outsourcing of compounded sterile preparations founded in 1991, CAPS delivers high-quality admixture services and solutions to hospitals and outpatient facilities across the nation. State-licensed and FDA-registered, CAPS pharmacies deliver solutions from more locations than any other national compounder.  CAPS provides both custom and standard solutions to hospital and outpatient providers from our 25 locations across the United States. Making over 300,000 local deliveries annually, CAPS pharmacies operate 365 days a year to dispense labeled, patient-specific and anticipatory IV prescriptions to our health system pharmacy customers.


Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive and continuous quality assurance program in the industry. We perform environmental monitoring and regular process validations as part of our routine Continuous Quality Assessment and Improvement Program.

The CAPS service is focused on the daily admixing, dispensing, and delivery of a variety of CSPs. CAPS uniquely trained and licensed pharmacy personnel compound a broad range of patient and non-patient specific CSPs embracing the latest compounding technology, including proprietary software for ordering prescriptions and barcode safety checks for automated and manual compounding processes.

Each CAPS pharmacy is managed by a pharmacist with well-established compounding expertise. These directors manage a team of licensed pharmacists and certified technicians trained on CAPS Standard Operating Procedures. CAPS employs a QA team of chemists, microbiologists, and on-site quality assurance personnel who are accountable independently from the admixture staff. Quality Assurance reports are provided to our clients on a quarterly basis.

Orders are sent  via CAPSLink, a web-based proprietary ordering software that can manage both complex and patient-specific prescriptions like Parenteral Nutrition (PN) and anticipatory compounded (AC) non-patient specific order requests. CAPS ordering system can also interface with your pharmacy management software for convenience and broader custom service options. Pharmacists review orders upon receipt and prepare your order using an automated compounding process and a bar coded manual-add-system (MAS) to verify ingredient accuracy.

CAPS has a variety of delivery options including same day and next day services.
