Hospital and healthcare administrators continuously seek for ways to enhance the patient experience, while also driving operational efficiency and reducing costs. Because nurses are on the front lines of delivering patient-centered care, improving their workflow can provide substantial benefits to patients and the hospital.
Automating medication storage and retrieval, inventory management and medication administration helps eliminate unnecessary administrative tasks and standardizes processes. And more efficient processes means more time that nurses can spend caring for patients.
Additionally, automation helps reduce errors and support patient safety. Swisslog automated medication dispensing and management solutions help ensure supplies and medications are delivered quickly and safely to the right patients at their bedside at the right time. Automation reduces waste, waits and worries – ensuring timely, efficient care and greater patient and nurse satisfaction.
