Abstract

The introduction of the automation process in the Hospital Pharmacy Service regards the mechanical processes of handling and distribution of medications. The entire pharmacy tasks chain may be monitored and realized by the informatics control, including patient information, medical history of patient, tracking and updating drugs submission during the hospitalizations, drug interaction and allergies risk detection, and finally the inventory management. Modern Informatics and constant developments in technology make the dispensing of prescription medications safer, more accurate and more efficient especially in the critic situation like in the pediatric Units. Robots and informatics procedures in TIN and in Pediatric Units can help the Physicians in the safe monitoring of the pharmacological treatments in order to reduce, for example, the risk of inappropriate drugs submission. Further, IT (Information technology) can help in the optimization of the drugs management by means the costs reduction for the Pharmacy Service in the Hospital. In this paper we present our experience in the AOUCA with this technology installed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Puericulture Institute and Neonatal Section of the “Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria” and University of Cagliari
