PharMEDium makes investments each year on continuous improvement and automation activities. We invest in understanding all aspects of drug therapies, drug dispensing and emerging technologies to delivery solutions that reduce the potential for medication errors and any associated costs.

Automation in our Compounding Centers

Patient safety is the highest priority at PharMEDium and drives a culture of continuous improvement. PharMEDium automated our OR syringe and IV bag filling and labeling to help ensure patient safety and flawless quality. Robotics have been used extensively to:

  • Reduce the number of opportunities for errors
  • Significantly reduce the number of manual aseptic manipulations required
  • Improve consistency (fill volume, cap tightness, label placement and label legibility)

We track our compounded preparations from FDA-approved sterile drugs and FDA-cleared sterile components all the way to the point of care, with 200% verification of all steps in the compounding process. To do this, we use a sophisticated scanning system of automated checks and verifications.
