Safe and Reliable Medication Delivery and TrackingAethon TUG® and MedEx™ technology support a wide range of pharmacy activities. Patient outcomes are enhanced because pharmacists and pharmacy technicians can remain focused on accurate medication fulfillment and fast turnaround times.
TUGWith the TUG automated robotic delivery solution, hospital pharmacies can improve the frequency and reliability of medication deliveries, ensuring secure scheduled and on-demand distribution from the pharmacy to the nurses’ station. Ready to roll 24/7, TUG can transport one patient’s prescription or an entire unit’s scheduled doses. Secure carts ensure narcotics and supplies are locked down during the transport process and only accessed by the proper person once TUG reaches its destination.

MEDEXThe web-based MedEx medication tracking system — working in conjunction with TUG, tube and/or hand deliveries — provides the pharmacy department (and nursing) with real-time status reports on where medications are in the process. It also supports chain of custody requirements, meeting compliance regulations such as electronic documentation of hand-offs. A combination of passive RFID, barcodes, biometrics, remote monitoring and/or secure delivery carts keeps the pharmacy in touch with all orders.
