Benefits of Expanding Cartless Distribution

The model for inpatient pharmacy drug distribution has evolved with changes in pharmacy practice. As hospital pharmacies face an ever-changing landscape with new responsibilities and challenges, the need to find more efficient medication distribution methods becomes increasingly important.

Omnicell conducted comprehensive time and motion studies at several healthcare facilities that use automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs) as part of their medication distribution model. The results of the analyses reveal the potential for increasing safety and efficiency by leveraging the ADC for a greater portion of drug distribution.
