WEBINAR | Applying Advanced Robotics to Increase Pharmacy Efficiencies at Sentara RMH
July 27, 2021, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Jamin Engel, PharmD, MBA, BCSCP, Western Region Director of Pharmacy, Sentara Healthcare. In a hospital setting, the safe and efficient distribution of medications is among the most fundamental responsibilities of the central pharmacy. Which medication distribution model a hospital chooses to employ – a centralized, decentralized, or hybrid – is reflected in the desired outcomes, and heavily influences the technology and processes employed. Learn how after a thorough review, Sentara’s Rockingham Memorial Hospital (RMH) recommitted to a hybrid distribution model using advanced robotics to distribute medications. In the process, the pharmacy automated many functions, reduced manual touches, and freed pharmacists and technicians to practice at the top of their licenses.
