The decentralization of care away from the hospital to other care settings, coupled with a growing aging population, increases the need for greater efficiency in long-term care (LTC) facilities.
Through technology-enabled pharmacies, long-term care facilities are experiencing improved access to medications, shortening the time to prepare for med passes and increasing nurse time with residents. In addition to traditional automation used by LTC pharmacies, remote, on-site dispensing enables nurses to quickly package pharmacist-approved medications before each med pass, or on-demand to facilitate new residents, First Doses, STAT orders and PRNs.
Improving Medication Availability
Storing medications on site addresses common medication availability challenges, shortening the time to administration and ensuring satisfaction for residents and their families. With remote dispensing, it’s like have a pharmacy right at the facility!
