Currently the most advanced automated distribution system has been put into use in No.1 Hospital of Ningbo. It has not only effectively shortened the dispensary time and improved the accuracy of medication delivery, but also has strengthened the scientific management of the pharmacy for drugs. The hospital has become the first in Ningbo to use the automated distribution system in its outpatient pharmacy.
It is reported that currently the drug delivery and management have been done by the automated system in No.1 Hospital. The system has a seamless integration with the HIS system in the hospital. It will first process the prescription information issued by the clinic physicians before it automatically assorts, identifies, checks and delivers the drugs. Then upon the check of the checking pharmacists in the background counter, the drugs will be allocated to the intelligent allotment shelves. After that, the reviewing pharmacists will deliver the drugs rapidly and accurately after further check, and provide the patients with as much detail as possible for medication.
