The PillPick Automated Drug Management System is a further step in logistics excellence. At the beginning of 2009, it was decided to install two PillPick Systems at the Hospital Pharmacy Trondheim to supply St. Olavs University Hospital. The Swisslog pharmacy robot automates the packaging, storage and dispensing of tablets, capsules, ampoules, vials, cups and syringes in unit doses. Together, the two systems will supply more than 13.000 unit doses on daily basis. Over 10.000 of these unit doses will be tablets. Each PillPick System is similar to the one already delivered and functional at the new Ahus hospital outside Oslo, Norway, but the duplication gives significantly higher capacity and reliability, suitable for the larger number of patients. The PillPick Systems has been operating since the fall of 2010 and include a newly developed transfer unit. In a fully automated process, this unit places the rings that carry the patient-specific, 24-hour medication orders into pneumatic tube carriers. These bar-coded therapy rings are transported by the Pneumatic Tube System directly to the relevant ward, ensuring a fast and safe delivery of the medicine to the patient. In case of emergency the delivery is planned within 15 minutes from the order entry. From a logistics perspective, the innovations at St. Olavs Hospital represent a state-of-the-art technology; every logistics process has been optimized for quality and efficiency on behalf of the patient.
