AutoCarousel

Author:

Talyst's (Kent, Wash) (formerly Integrated Healthcare Systems) Auto- Carousel is the hardware component of the company's AutoPharm System. The AutoCarousel automates stocking and picking activities, consolidates static shelving, and provides added security for medications. The system features a range of configurations and capacities that fit any pharmacy; "pick-to-light" technology that speeds stocking and picking, while bar-code scans assure accuracy; and AutoPharm software that sequences all tasks, reduces the time spent restocking automated dispensing cabinets and completing patient-specific fills. With the AutoCarousel, access is limited to authorized users by password, plus the system can be physically locked to provide additional security when not in use.
