Swisslog, a leading supplier of automation and software solutions for material transport and medication management, today announced that it has formed a co-marketing partnership with Healthland®, America's market leader in healthcare information technology solutions for rural hospitals. Under the new agreement, Healthland will interface its complete electronic health record (EHR) solution with Swisslog’s MedRover® Mobile Dispensing Cabinet.

“The integration with MedRover enables Healthland to provide hospitals with a closed-loop process for medication dispensing, administration and documentation along with our state-of-the-art EHR solution,” said Michael Karaman, Healthland senior vice president of product. “Our relationship with Swisslog furthers our commitment to rural hospitals, ensuring these providers have access to the patient information they need to improve the efficient delivery of quality, informed healthcare.”

MedRover is the only fully integrated mobile dispensing cabinet designed to increase nursing and patient satisfaction. Giving nurses all essential medications and supplies in a single mobile unit allows them to spend more time providing uninterrupted patient care. MedRover offers secure, high-capacity storage of patient-specific medications, narcotics, floor stock and supplies in a single mobile unit, with a lower total cost of ownership than automated dispensing cabinets.

“Together, Swisslog’s MedRover and the Healthland EHR solution allow rural healthcare customers to improve patient safety by putting critical patient-centered activities at the point of care,” said Ben Hinnen, vice president of Swisslog’s Medication Management business unit. “It also provides rural hospitals with a platform for EHR implementation. This is a natural step in our efforts to ensure that nurses are able to do their most important job – taking care of patients – without interruption.” With this partnership, Swisslog Healthcare Solutions and Healthland look forward to providing cutting-edge technology solutions for critical access hospitals at the most cost-effective price.
