Swisslog Healthcare Solutions will feature the innovative PillPick® Automated Drug Management System (ADMS) technology at booth #3102 at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference & Exhibition, February 24-28, 2008 in Orlando, FL.

A 100% bar-coded solution, the PillPick system enables point-of-care verification and supports centralized, decentralized, and hybrid pharmacy operations. Using the exclusive PillPick Manager application, the system receives electronic patient orders via the HL7 interface, sorts them by priority, and begins to automatically unload the drugs either from the DrugNest, a high-density robotic warehouse or the BoxPicker, a space-saving, modular storage and dispensing solution. A unique tracking number is assigned to every unit-dose bag in the PillPick system- further assisting the pharmacy with billing accuracy and inventory control. Then a patient-specific, 24 hour supply of drugs is grouped together on Swisslog's patented PickRing. Return crediting is automatic requiring no manual scanning.

The versatile PillPick Manager software allows hospitals to run advanced diagnostics, monitor expiration dates, control access security, in addition to operating all PillPick components. As a result, the pharmacy is fully capable of optimizing the work flow. More importantly, the potential for human error is significantly reduced. Ultimately, hospital pharmacies benefit from a faster turnaround time, increased productivity, and greater patient safety at a lower cost of operation with PillPick.

Swisslog Healthcare Solutions also manufactures the technologically advanced TransLogic Pneumatic Tube System (PTS) and the innovative laser-guided TransCar Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV). Swisslog provides a complete hospital supply chain management approach, from total system design and manufacturing, to installation and customer support.
