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.
AutoPhial™ Overwrap Module
As the only over-bagger fully integrated with a packager and drug storage warehouse, the AutoPhial Overwrap Module helps boost pharmacy efficiency by automating the packaging of overwrapped vials, cups, ampoules, syringes and blisters. Additionally, the AutoPhial provides manual packaging for individual medication for one-of-a-kind or low-volume products.
TranspoNet Integration Unit
(Not available in North America)
The TranspoNet Integration Unit automatically loads patient-specific, unit-dose PickRings produced by the PillPick Packaging and Dispensing System into TranspoNet Carriers. Without any manual handling, the PickRings are transported to the wards via the TranspoNet Pneumatic Tube System (PTS). Through the seamless connection of the PTS with the PillPick by the TranspoNet Integration Unit and its automated handling of drugs, hospitals can achieve the highest level of safety for patients.
