Components of a MedSMART ADC

The MedSMART Automated Dispensing Cabinet (ADC) can be as simple or as customized as you would like it to be to suit your hospital’s workflow requirements. Each component provides a specific function that contributes to the usability of the ADC, supplementing your hospital’s workflow and supporting you operationally so you can better care for your patients.

Structure of a MedSMART Unit

MedSMART ADC is one complete unit with a main tower and an auxiliary tower. Additional auxiliary towers can be added to expand storage and dispensing requirements as needed in the future.

The automated dispensing cabinet comes with MedDoors which are open-shelf cabinets to store liquid and bulky drugs such as saline solutions. MedDoors provide secure storage and accurate dispensing to meet your needs.
