Aethon Develops First-Ever Solution for Automated Replenishment of Pharmacy ADCs
Date:12/8/2008

enience of ADCs, which have become ubiquitous in modern hospitals as a means of dispensing medication, the current model for their use has also created inefficiencies, particularly in the area of inventory maintenance. Restocking ADCs with medications is labor-intensive and prone to inaccuracies, while difficult to provide adequate oversight of the process.

Aethon's Solution - How It Works

With Aethon's new technology, items in need of replenishment are loaded into the TUG med-replenish cart and TUG reads the passive RFID tag, creating the beginning of the chain of custody record. TUG is dispatched to the ADC, where it is met by a designated staff member assigned to assist with the replenishment of the ADCs.

The TUG's passive RFID reader authorizes the staff member using his or her employee badge, unlocks the TUG med-replenish cart, and communicates with the appropriate ADC based on its location. The ADC responds by displaying a list of items that need to be replenished. When the staff member removes an item from the TUG med-replenish cart, it is automatically recognized via a passive RFID tag and the ADC is alerted that the item is to be restocked. The ADC automatically unlocks and opens the appropriate drawer for restocking. Once the quantity is confirmed and added to the ADC, TUG completes the chain of custody record.

Aethon's replenishment solution is designed to work with all brands of ADCs. The replenishment solution is currently in its beta phase, and Aethon is in discussions with several ADC manufacturers about integration. The complete solution will be demonstrated at Aethon's booth (#2458) during the show. For more information, visit www.aethon.com.
