How Do Automated Prescription Dispensary Systems Work?

Synmed has designed a catalog of medical dispensary systems focused on complete automation.  Of course, the purpose is to enlist machines that can be programmed to not only prepare but also dispense solid, oral medications via pill-organizing blister pack.  This, of course, is just the latest innovation in the still new but quickly evolving medical technology field.  

These inventive robotic medical assistants are more than just novelties. These automated systems can improve both efficacy and efficiency to increase overall performance.Image result for How Do Automated Prescription Dispensary Systems Work?


Obviously, a major benefit to automation is accomplishing tasks at a higher speed.  Quicker processing means more orders filled, more products distributed, and more revenue on a more consistent basis.  These systems are fast, yes, but it is more important that the orders can be filled in a consistent way, to ensure a high rate of success.

    • These automated medical dispensary machines utilize various groups of cards through production trays of 7 units, selecting and placing each medication into its own blister pack
    • simultaneous filling of blister packs
    • automatic medication selection, counting, and placement management
    • automatic management rate of 55 doses per minute
    • can fill as many as 45 cards every hour, depending upon the average number of of medications needed per patient order


In traditional manual operations, increasing speed typically results in a reduction in accuracy,.  With an automated system, then, you can get speed without having to sacrifice accuracy.

    • preparation automation can ensure the most accuracy over manual human operation
    • automation integrates scanning and reference points through production and verification stages that can ensure more control and in a more practical way
    • more consistent deliver through automated medication selection counting and placing of medicine in the blister packs
    • an automated pharmacy management system can also deliver prescriptions electronically
    • automation improves overall reliability


Finally, automating the delivery system can also improve production costs. By reducing errors and saving time, automation can also:

    • reduce prescription preparation time by more than 75 percent when compared against manual prescription preparation
    • reduce prescription verification time by as much as 50 percent
