Denver, Colo. (PRWEB) May 25, 2010
Patient safety and staff efficiency are among the top concerns of hospital administrators throughout North America. Healthcare executives do not want to sacrifice one for the other, nor do they have to thanks to Swisslog’s pharmacy automation and materials transport solutions.
Swisslog Healthcare Solutions helps hospitals increase patient safety as well as maintain an efficient workflow process in all areas in the facility. Swisslog’s vast and varied product portfolio is so extensive that one booth at ASHP Summer Show 2010 just wasn’t enough. The company will be exhibiting its wares at two separate booths during the June 6 – 8 show in Tampa, FL.
Building safety through Swisslog’s pharmacy automation solutions will be the focus in booth #313. Swisslog’s expanding pharmacy portfolio includes solutions ranging from unit dose packagers to inventory management software. The booth will feature two simultaneous presentations on how Swisslog technology such as PillPick, a multi-tasking robot; BoxPicker, an alternative to a vertical carousel; and the ATP Series of high-speed unit dose packagers can help pharmacies reduce medication errors and increase staff time for clinical tasks.
In the second Swisslog booth (#423), the company’s newest materials transport technology, SpeciMinder, will be demonstrated. SpeciMinder is an autonomous mobile robot designed specifically for intra-departmental applications, particularly within hospital pharmacies and laboratories, where it can provide both on-demand and scheduled transport of payloads weighing up to 50 pounds. In addition to SpeciMinder, information will also be presented about Swisslog’s pneumatic tube system for rapid transport of medications from the pharmacy to patient floors.
