Metro, a world leader in providing technology, storage and transport solutions for healthcare facilities, today announced its latest hardware and software upgrades for its MedDispense Automating Dispensing Systems, including the new Metro NurSync™ remote queuing feature.

“At this year’s ASHP event, we’re proud to unveil a series of new hardware and software enhancements designed with the input of our customers that build on the core capabilities of our MedDispense system to drive even greater efficiencies,” said Rob Sobie, vice president of healthcare marketing at Metro. “The new MedDispense software, our integrated all-in-one touch-screen PC and new storage solutions are indicative of our ability to capitalize on best-in-market capabilities to swiftly respond to the unique needs of our customers throughout all areas of healthcare. We’re making it easier than ever to Go Metro!”

In addition to Metro NurSync, MedDispense systems now feature a new 17” touch-screen all-in-one PC; half height supply cabinet doors for increased control; redesigned cabinet tops for more usable work surface; a new refrigerator lock that allows for temperature monitoring and logging; and a MedDispense-compatible Starsys catheter cabinet.

In addition to MedDispense Automated Dispensing Systems, Metro’s booth (#313) will highlight solutions for nearly every department in healthcare, long-term care and alternative care facilities, from point-of-care computing solutions to clinical documentation and specialized procedure carts.
