Maimonides Medical Center has completed the installation of the McKesson automated hospital robot to add to the hospitals repertoire of technological advancements. The McKesson Robot was designed to improve both efficiency and safety in the pharmacy. It will help to lower costs in the pharmacy by improving pharmacy efficiency, decreasing the amount of medications lost to expiration, decreasing the number of missing medications, and keeping track of the medication inventory. The robot also automates medication storage, selection, return, restock, and crediting functions for 90 percent or more of the hospital's daily medication volume. The robot will even increase filling accuracy to an estimated 99 percent, thus reducing dispensing errors to an estimated 1 percent. For more info on the robot, please click here.
