project proposal topic
Project Proposal Topic:
  • The topic I wish to research is the use of automated medication dispensing systems, such as the McKesson ROBOT-Rx, within healthcare settings. These automated systems utilize bar code technology to effectively store and dispense medication in patient-labeled envelopes for delivery. The ultimate goal of these systems is for safe medication management. In addition to researching more in depth how the system works, I wish to research as well how these dispensing systems have actually affected hospitals where they have been implemented, such as if they have affected safety and/or efficiency. I also hope to find evidence on the reactions and opinions of those healthcare workers and hospitals using the system. In general I would like to assess if this technology is worth placing into healthcare facilities.
automated dispensing medication systems overview
Automated Dispensing Medication Systems: Overview
  • Store, dispense every form of medication using barcode technology
    • Receives order, ‘eye’ scans barcode, robotic arm retrieves med
  • Each dose packaged, labeled with standardized barcode containing drug code and expiration date
  • Project will attempt to assess (I) potential benefits; (II) current evidence whether supportive or contradictory

Ex: The McKesson ROBOT-Rx

i benefits overview
I. Benefits Overview:
  • (1) Increase safety
    • Standardized barcode system
    • Decreases med errors
    • Additional safeguard: pharmacist checks 10% dispensed meds
  • (2) Increase efficiency/productivity
    • Automate manual tasks
      • Leads to increased patient care time
  • (3) Increase inventory control
    • Decreases inventory costs
    • Eliminates stock outages

ii evidence preliminary preview of promising current evidence
II. Evidence: Preliminary Preview of Promising Current Evidence
  • Nash General Hospital (Rocky Mount, NC)
    • Pharmacy utilizes McKesson ROBOT-Rx, named MACK
    • Reduced pharmacy checking labor by 90%
    • Lowered expired medication costs by 54%
    • No elimination of jobs, employees may focus in other areas
  • Evergreen Hospital Medical Center (Kirkland, WA)
    • Uses McKesson ROBOT-Rx
    • Cart fill labor decreased 72%
    • $2 million in annual savings
    • Aided narcotics management
    • Decreased crediting labor 50%

Overall presentation grade: 9.7
  • I thought that overall it was a really clear, concise and visually appealing presentation. There were some minor thing that I thought could be improved upon such as placement and quality of pictures. I thought the actual text was easy to understand and flowed well
