York Hospital Adopts Pharmacy Automation Technology by Talyst to Increase Efficiency and Improve Patient Safety
Date:6/8/2011

BELLEVUE, Wash., June 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- York Hospital, recognized as one of the top 100 hospitals on six occasions, announced its adoption of innovative automated technology by Talyst. The hospital will implement AutoPharm3, AutoCarousel HD, AutoPack and AutoLabel to increase its efficiency and improve patient safety.

The central pharmacy, located on the seventh floor on the North side of the hospital, needed a solution that would ensure accurate, timely deliveries to the patients on the South side of the hospital. By employing enterprise-class software with bedside barcode scanning, York hospital will ensure virtually 100% of the medications leaving the pharmacy are scan-ready at the bedside to improve accuracy and reduce medication errors.

"Over the last 30 years, our hospital has seen increasing demands with our pharmacy services and population growth," said Thomas Brenner, Director of Pharmacy at York Hospital in York, Pa. "With Talyst's automated technology, our pharmacy is now able to adapt to this growth and improve patient safety at the bedside."

Other challenges the hospital pharmacy experienced were the limited amount of available space and increasing efficiency in its inventory. With AutoPharm3 and AutoCarousel HD, York Hospital will be able to decrease inventory by at least 10% and be able to store more in a smaller space. The automated carousel provides maximum storage in an organized, accessible and compact footprint.

"We often hear from our customers about their increasing demands and limited space in their pharmacies," said Carla Corkern, Chief Executive Officer. "Talyst products help our customers minimize storage footprint, while also improving patient safety with our barcoding technology."

The perpetual inventory system provided by Talyst's enterprise-class AutoPharm software will also have significant impacts on the way York Hospital stocks, manages and tracks medication. The implementation will be finished by the end of fiscal year 2012.
