The Pyxis® MedStation® 4000 automated medication dispensing system offers new features that can help hospitals increase the security of high-alert medications and reduce medication errors. Key features include enhanced barcode scanning technology to help ensure the right medication is administered to the right patient at the correct dosage, the ability to block loading of specific medications to avoid medication errors and user-specific tracking of undocumented waste that reminds users of the need to document waste. Cardinal Health also launched its new Performance Analytics Service, which securely transmits medication dispensing data from the Pyxis MedStation 4000 and infusion data from the Alaris® System to Cardinal Health experts for review and analysis.
