Sydvestjysk Hospital recently opened a new patient-ward building and wanted a modern solution to help reduce medication waste. eMED ICON automated dispensing cabinets were chosen.
Mega-Fixu automated dispensing system, with its moving robot arms, has been lovingly named "Kerttu" by the hospital staff. Read how the friendly robot has made an impact on the everyday work of the pharmacy technicians at North Karelia Central Hospital.
Involved in the operations is the world’s largest fully automated medical storage system, which has two robot arms feeding 4,000–5,000 medicine packages into the storage a day.
Kuopio University Hospital invested in a full line of NewIcon's pharmacy automation systems for its new facilities. This includes a Mega-Fixu automated dispensing system, more than 65 eMED ICON automated dispensing cabinets, and an IV ICON Twins compounding system.
The IV ICON Twins compounding system will change work, especially on the wards that use large volumes of cefuroxime. Nurses will have more time available for nursing, and pharmacists can focus on supporting medicine supply in practice.
