Swisslog Healthcare strengthens the closed loop medication management by incorporating a point of care solution in the pharmacy management portfolio.

Swisslog Healthcare envisions an end-to-end medication management solution for tracking drugs from their arrival at the central pharmacy to distribution at the clinical points of care. This ensures visibility of the drug inventory and lifecycle and supports the 5 rights of medication administration to improve patient safety.
To strengthen the closed loop medication management approach, Swisslog Healthcare collaborates with TriaTech Medical Systems to offer the MedSMART range of automated dispensing cabinets (ADC) for various clinical points of care in Europe.
“I am looking forward to broadening our portfolio through the partnership with TriaTech. The MedSMART product line enables our customers to achieve a holistic medication management in the hospital, as it allows us to provide the right automation solution for every drug inventory location from a single source thus enabling cross-departmental transparency.” said Massimo Zagnoni, Head of Sales EMEA of Swisslog Healthcare.
The MedSMART ADC digitizes drug management processes at the clinical points of care while ensuring accurate and secure dispensing of therapies to inpatients. Advanced clinical and patient safety alerts, user-specific language settings and digitized drug information make the MedSMART ADC highly user-friendly. It enables quick onboarding for new caregivers, ensures a high level of patient safety in the dispensing process, and automates drug inventory controls such as replenishment orders, drug returns, and drug expiry controls.
