A pharmacy automation system, PillPick helps hospitals eliminate the opportunity for medication errors during packaging and dispensing—ultimately increasing patient safety. PillPick decreases human touches in bar coding, packaging, storing and dispensing unit dose medications. By automating these tasks, the packaging and dispensing system streamlines hospital pharmacy operations and increases accuracy. The patented PickRing® delivers patient-specific medication on a single ring. Nurses now have access to a 24-hour barcoded supply of a patient’s medication, which reduces the opportunity for missed medications and speeds up administration time. PickRings are flexible in that they can be assembled by drug name or sequenced by administration time, as well as transported in cassettes, carts or pneumatic tube systems. The PillPick System ensures complete traceability of medication, which not only provides greater safety at the point of administration but also minimizes waste and reduces operational costs. From packaging and labeling bulk pharmaceuticals into unit doses, to storing barcoded doses, to automatically assembling patient-specific medications, PillPick is the ultimate automated pharmacy system for patient safety and operational efficiency.
