Important Considerations for Planning a Robot-Friendly Hospital
Robotic delivery vehicles, also known as automated guided vehicles (AGVs) or self-guided vehicles (SGVs), have been widely used in material handling for decades. More recently, these mobile robots are in higher demand in hospitals as a result of changing demographic and healthcare cost-control trends. Operational efficiencies are gained by automating hospital deliveries, allowing redeployment of human resources. Download white paper to learn more.

Designing a Lean Laboratory by Decreasing Waste and Optimizing Workflow
A core belief in lean is that people are an organizations’ most important asset. This is even more critical in hospitals and clinical settings where patients’ lives depend on the work that its employees perform. Properly engaged and leveraged, these employees are a competitive advantage – delivering a better patient experience. Download white paper to learn more.

Managing Technological Change in Your Pharmacy
A number of issues are driving renewed interest in pharmacy automation solutions. Among these are governmental mandates, patient expectations, safety considerations, an older, sicker population and the need to cut costs. Yet, the deployment of such systems can be disruptive. Pharmacists can mitigate the pain of such implementations by rolling out a change management program. By meeting change issues head on, you will realize the full benefits of your solution sooner. Download the white paper to learn more.

Chain of Custody

Understanding the Four Essential Elements for Chain-of-Custody Solutions In Health Care
Pneumatic tube systems have evolved to become critical to hospital logistics. Their essential duty is to efficiently move materials to and from patient care and service locations within the hospital —either for delivery or further processing. Success for these systems is measured when a carrier payload securely reaches its intended recipient free of mishandling, tampering, theft or diversion. In order to achieve this standard consistently, hospital administrators must exercise control over their automated transport systems. And the means to do that is through a chain-of-custody solution. Download the white paper to learn more.
