The Intelligent Medication Cart

E-mail Print PDF
Smartcart Typical non-secure “point of care” carts without electronic security require nurses to take 1 patient’s medications at a time.

A nurse with 6 patient assignments has to make up to 12 trips to and from the Central Medication Cart or Automated Dispensing Machine per “round”. The combination of a central medication cart with a non-secure computer station creates an inefficient nursing workflow. AcuDose®/Pyxis® machines are excellent for pharmacy control but can create an inefficient nursing workflow. EnovateIT unveiled the next generation of mobile medication technology. The SmartCart provides a unique workflow for clinicians to maximize the quality and safety of patient care.

“We are thrilled with the design and functionality of the new SmartCart,” said Fred Calero, vice-president and co-founder of EnovateIT. “Not only does it provide an easier way to dispense medication, but it increases patient safety by allowing each patient's medication drawer to open individually.”

The one–of–a–kind SmartCart is clinician-controlled with automated storage and up to 24 lockable, patient-specific drawers, which open individually for optimal safety. The SmartCart will also provide optional e–MAR, bedside documentation, med–passes and inventory management and allows clinicians to access critical real-time patient information at the point–of–care.

The SmartCart includes the most state–of–the–art technology in medicine delivery and ergonomic design with features including:

  • 18″x22″ compact wheel base for easy maneuvering in patient areas
  • Multiple computing platforms – notebooks, tablets, All–in–Ones, Thin–Clients
  • Replaceable monitors – supports VESA based alternative monitors
  • Net weight of 120lbs with full drawers
  • Large 16″x16″ work surface with raised edge to help retain spills
  • Integrated keyboard light for usage in a dark environment
  • UL & CE certified
  • Basic off–the–shelf SW solution to control the automated storage
  • Standard Windows® based computing platform – easy integration
  • HL7 ready – for integration with other hospital information systems (HIS)
  • Batteries – dual Lithium-Ion: providing maximum runtime without recharging
  • Smart power management including movement detection sensor
  • Accurate battery gauge, battery health state
  • Fast & safe charging using a standard AC plug
  • Various accessories including cup dispenser, sharps bin container
