Cardinal Health Launches Pyxis(R) MedStation(R) 4000; Introduces Industry-First Service to Interpret Dispensing and Infusion Data
Date:12/8/2008

ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Building on its flagship suite of medication and infusion management platforms, Cardinal Health today launched the Pyxis(R) MedStation(R) 4000 and an industry-first Performance Analytics Service that provides hospitals with customized, actionable recommendations to help improve medication safety.

The Pyxis(R) MedStation(R) 4000 automated medication dispensing system offers new features that can help hospitals increase the security of high-alert medications and reduce medication errors. Key new features include:

-- Enhanced barcode scanning technology - Provides the option to require clinicians to scan medications upon removal to help ensure they've retrieved the right medication for the right patient and alert them to incorrect dosage or other potential errors. The built-in scanner is also used during restocking to help ensure the right medications are loaded into the right drawer location.

-- Ability to block loading of specific medications - Provides an option to reject certain medications from being loaded into a specific Pyxis(R) MedStation(R) 4000 system, helping to protect against certain types of medication errors. For example, adult-sized doses of medication can be programmed from the pharmacy console to never be accepted at a Pyxis(R) MedStation(R) 4000 located in a neonatal unit.

-- User-specific tracking of undocumented waste - When specific users remove more of a medication than prescribed, the Pyxis(R) MedStation(R) 4000 system tracks and reminds the user of the need to document the waste. The information can be used to identify possible incidence of diversion.

Cardinal Health also launched its new Performance Analytics Service, which securely transmits medication dispensing data from the Pyxis(R) MedStation(R) 4000 and infusion data from the Alaris(R) System to Cardinal Health experts for review and analysis. Ba
