PYXIS’ Medstation ES Promotes Medication Safety Through Automated Dispensing
Medical Shipment is a premium supplier of simulation nursing supplies and equipment, including the BD PYXIS Medstation ES. This solution provides an automated dispensing cabinet for enterprise medication management. The resource helps clinicians safely and efficiently dispense the right medications for the right patients at the right time. Medical Shipment is the only authorized distributor that BD has partnered with to sell the Pyxis MedStation products for educational purposes.
“Medical Shipment works with BD (Becton Dickinson), a world-renowned medical supplier that manufactures the Pyxis MedStation. We believe it’s a great innovation that teaches automated dispensing for enterprise medication management in the educational and training setting,” said Medical Shipment Founder Dan Micic.
The new Pyxis ES platform from CareFusion is designed to address the changing landscape of healthcare, ushering in a new generation of Pyxis solutions. The cornerstone of the new platform is the Pyxis MedStation ES system—powered by Pyxis Enterprise Server and featuring innovative enterprise-wide integration capabilities previously not seen in other medication management systems.
Today, the Pyxis MedStation ES system utilizes enhanced, smart CUBIE technology to improve efficiency and enhance medication safety. Half-height and full-height smart CUBIE pockets provide flexible, configurable capacity to store all types of medications, bringing more medications to care areas.
The safety enhancements incorporated with the Medstation ES help prevent harmful medication errors, adverse drug events and the risk of diversion. During use, efficient, patient-centric clinical workflows guide nurses to medication and patient information all in one place. Further, the centralized medication management product allows for standardization across health systems for formulary and user management, reporting and flexibility in configuring site-specific needs.
The BD Pyxis ES platform also offers enterprise-wide medication management through integration with HIT systems. Enterprise-wide HIT integration enables scalability with common HIT interfaces, helping to reduce IT footprints. This allows health systems to leverage existing IT investments. The enterprise-wide synchronization with PIS and sophisticated Active Directory integration capabilities provide standardization and expense reduction across each health system.
Flexible storage space options support size, scope and capacity for various care area needs, including storage for larger medications. Ultimately, this automated dispensing cabinet provides end-to-end medication management and visibility through integrations with BD Pyxis Logistics and BD HealthSight, working to optimize inventory, prevent diversion and improve medication safety.
Together, all of these features benefit nursing learners and professionals by providing them with access to comprehensive medication and patient information located in one place. This has helped nurses get the information they need quicker than ever before. By starting at the My Patients screen in the Pyxis MedStation ES system, the intuitive workflow can better ensure that nurses are always focused on what’s most important—their patients.
