What are the benefits of APS technology?
APS is the only patented remote automated dispensing system to be approved by state boards of pharmacy on a large scale. CareOne is expediting APS adoption because it dramatically cuts down on the time nurses spend in med-pass, meaning those hours are transferred from a tedious task to something nurses do best: caring for and connecting with residents directly at the bedside.
APS is the ideal solution for the immediate medication needs of newly admitted residents and for managing changed medication orders. With APS, medicines can be approved by the pharmacist and available for administration in minutes rather than waiting for delivery.
APS has a proven safety track record. The system has demonstrated a 99.9999% accuracy rate, virtually eliminating human error in dispensing.
Furthermore, APS only dispenses the amount of medication needed by the resident. This feature makes drug waste a virtual thing of the past, improving the safety of everyone and the health of our environment by removing the risks of pill disposal.
The innovative technologies and practices we incorporate all share a common goal. We want to allow our staff members to focus on the most important thing in our integrated healthcare system – the people we care for. APS is just one of the things that prove that quality of life is our top priority!
APS is one example of CareOne’s use of technology to benefit all patients and residents, bringing the best medical innovation to bear for people who may be in a critical time of need.
