Technology & Automation Vendors

Incredible advances have been made in the automation of pharmacy systems in the last 30 years. Unit-based cabinets, automated carousels, infusion pumps, compounding workflow management solutions, and their associated software have all changed the way pharmacies operate. With each breakthrough, new reductions in labor and improvements in data integrity were sought and accomplished. UnitVisID Certified RFID systems, referencing a central repository of historical data on each unit-of-use medication, hold the opportunity to further these advances by driving key improvements.
