Components of a MedSMART

The automated dispensing cabinet MedSMART is configurable according to your workflow requirements. Each module offers a specific feature that supports and facilitates your work steps. The software can be comprehensively adapted, and the user surface has an intuitive design, so your requirements are perfectly met.

Different sizes. Increased flexibility.

MedSMART consists of one main tower and can be combined with one or several auxiliary towers.

The different cabinet and drawer modules make automated medication dispensing safe and efficient. Liquid and bulky medication can be stored in secured access open-shelf cabinets (MedDoor), while drawers with flexible organizing systems allow quick medication picking (SMARTMatrix). The automated dispensing cabinet can be equipped with drawers meeting safety standards for high-alert drugs (Sliding Drawer).

Intuitive software. Easy to use.

The MedSMART software package consists of two main components that are easy to understand and don’t require lengthy training.

User interface: The user-friendly interface of the automated dispensing cabinet ensures that staff, doctors, pharmacists and technicians can effortlessly perform transactions on the cabinet and that those transactions are documented accordingly. Clear instructions about prescriptions and administration times as well as comprehensive information about medication improve patient safety.

Web application: The central web application SMARTCenter can be called up via a browser in the network. Administrators can access system control to define and manage roles and rights for users as well as to configure cabinets and medications, create reports and more. Alerts are issued in case of temperature or humidity deviations, empty stocks and pending expiry dates. They significantly contribute to improved efficiency and inventory management.
