Swisslog, a leading provider of automated materials transport and medication management solutions for hospitals, today announced the addition of MedPickRx™, a pick-to-light pharmacy storage solution, to its portfolio of medication management products.
Led by market demands for an activity-based storage solution for bulk medications, MedPickRx provides hospitals with an alternative to traditional carousels and shelving. The innovative modular solution features light-directed and barcode-verified picking for technicians, tracking inventory at each step to provide perpetual inventory. Unlike other storage solutions, MedPickRx will reduce labor and space by storing 100% of formulary in a fraction of the space.
