Medication Workstation – Mobile Solution Spotlight
Chandler, AZ USA – Medication Workstations are a specific type of medical carts used throughout hospitals. Departments include but are not limited to: patient floors, Med-Surg, Telemetry, ICU (NICU, CCU, CVICU), ED, and more. Medication Workstations enable professional healthcare staff to provide and account for the administration of medications to patients. Medication workstation systems have five major components that accomplish this: Software, Medication Bins, Computing Interface, eMAR Scanning Gun, and Mobility (wheels). These five primary features of the medication workstation bring the medication administration to the patient; Or, “Point-of-Care“.
Our “Mobile Solution Spotlight” for May is the MX Series Medication Workstation by Capsa Solutions. The MX offers all of the five major components with several customizable peripheral features that tailor it to your exact medication administration workflow protocols. As with all types of mobile computing, medication workstations have several departments involved in the selection process due to use, critical data, and of course maintenance and service. The MX Medication Workstation is a True Solution.
EHR Computer Interface
The MX has raving fans from IS/IT due to it’s ability to work with hospital standardized computing platforms; Laptops, Small Form Factors, AIO’s, and mounted Tablets). In addition the ease and speed of battery change out is an absolute favorite feature of the MX Medication Workstation. The eMAR scanning gun for bar code administration is conveniently mounted and also customizable.
Medication Workstations also support medication administration management software (MAMS) to integrate with hospital systems’ electronic healthcare records (EHR). The latop or computer interface on the MX will support your team’s MAMS. As for software to manage your fleet of carts and users – the MX series offers a robust software in Cartwatch Remote Management System. Cartwatch is a web based laptop cart IT security management software. It enables administrators to update and control access to carts quickly and easily. It eliminates the need to visit all carts individually for audits and reprogramming. Cartwatch sports an intuitive and friendly user database and delivers automatic, customized, and detailed reporting for the entire hospital medication workstation fleet.
Nursing staff continue to praise the MX Workstation’s for their mobility and user interface. The MX has a sturdy but minimal footprint with 4″ polyurethane all swivel ball bearing wheels that offer smooth maneuverability on any surface (carpet, wood, laminate, or tile). The aluminum column offers mounting accessories for tablets or wire baskets, and offers convenient workstation heights with manual or electronic height adjust.
