Automation Systems, Medication Dispensing

Definition : Automation systems designed for use in healthcare facilities to dispense medications. They can usually read patient's medication orders and retrieve the correct medication, adjusting the inventory and/or the patient's bill. Most systems can accommodate oral medicines (solid or liquid), ophthalmic drops, prefilled syringes, and topical preparations. They are usually interfaced with the pharmacy and/or the hospital information systems. Medication-dispensing automation systems are available either for a centralized distribution of medicines only in a central clinical pharmacy or throughout the hospital through computerized cabinets in patient care areas and/or nurse stations. All these systems are intended to improve the safety and/or efficiency of dispensing medications; they are usually configured according to particular hospital pharmacy requirements.
