The SIG on Automated Medication Management (financially supported by Omnicell) is tasked with investigating the potential benefits of automation in the hospital setting in terms of patient safety, length of stay and staff efficiency for patient care and medication inventory management. Particular focus is put on addressing how automation in dispensing can help achieve one of the key objectives of the World Health Organisation, reducing medication errors.
Survey on Automated Medication Management
To support the work of the SIG a survey has been designed aiming at the collection of views and opinions on the current and future use of automated medication management solutions. Individual hospital pharmacists were invited to complete this survey. The survey closed on the 31st of July 2022.
