Pyxis, an automated medication management system, is designed to increase patient safety and efficiency. It improves nursing
and pharmacy staff collaboration. It electronically generates patient medication list and displays the status of orders. The
system includes a fingerprint verification function and features electronic tracking and documentation that protects patient
files against unauthorized access.
Traditional medication system, which is inefficient and error-prone, increases both the risk and the cost. However, many of
the medication errors such as incomplete information, allergies, dosages and sound-alike drugs can be prevented through use of
electronic medication management systems. It is proven that automating the medication use not only helps solve problems of
traditional medication, but also improves clinical and operational results.
