Talyst Announces New Automated Medication Packager
KIRKLAND, Wash., June 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Talyst, a leader in pharmacy automation, announces its newest AutoPack®, which automates packaging for oral solid medications.
The new AutoPack integrates with existing pharmacy operations and provides unit-or multi-dose oral solid medication packaging. The packager features an Auto Canister that provides automatic dispensing for half dose tablets, infrequently used tablets or tablets with special shapes.
“Our new AutoPack complements our existing oral packager suite,” said Carla Corkern, Chief Executive Officer at Talyst. “It’s another tool to support hospitals with their barcode initiatives.”
Combining Talyst’s AutoPack with their AutoLabel ensures that virtually 100% of the medications leaving pharmacies are scan-ready at the bedside. The barcoding technology is aligned with the Centers for Medicaid & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) recent stage 2 “meaningful use” criteria ruled in the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.
