Metro’s MedDispense Series

Metro's MedDispense Series provides decentralized automated medication dispensing systems for health care facilities nationwide. Our systems are known for their low cost and high-capacity yet compact design.

The dispensing automation that most facilities desire is simply out of their price range. The MedDispense Series delivers an affordable, robust system that even the smaller hospital can afford. Our systems use the latest interface technology, ensuring revenue capture as well as JCAHO compliance at a surprising low cost.

Compared to other vendors, our systems are undoubtedly the most affordable on the market today as well as the simplest to use.

  • allow nursing access to medications with pharmacy control via centralized server
  • reduce medication errors
  • eliminate missing doses
  • eliminate manual charge functions with interface functionality
  • ensure accurate dispensing with profile interface
  • enable freestanding functionality when network connectivity not feasible

Our software is the most intuitive dispensing system software available on the market today. Our systems were developed by healthcare professionals committed to keeping training simple while delivering extensive functionality. Nurses can typically be trained on our systems in less than 5 minutes.

Full interface functionality is also available through the HL7 standard, including ADT, billing, profile, inventory, and formulary.

Because implementation issues that are involved with HL7 interface projects usually require custom development and extensive site analysis, MedDispense employs a team of analysts to serve as HL7 interface implementation specialists. These specialists will work with the medical facility and third party vendor developers on HL7 interface projects from the initial design phase until the interface is installed and in production.

From pharmacy to point-of-care, Intelliguard® RFID Management Systems improve patient safety, reduce costs, and increase staff efficiency by automating medication inventory management and replenishment. Features include countertop and under counter enclosures or all-in-one cart options to automate tray inventory, replenishment and approval processes while significantly reducing required labor. With the ability to read high-density trays, multi-layer tackle boxes and overlapping kit tags, this revolutionary system can scan more than 150 medications in a matter of seconds.

“The Intelliguard® Kit and Tray Management System has significantly improved accuracy and reduced pharmacy replenishment time from between 5 to 45 minutes to three minutes, even with trays containing more than 120 items. My staff can now focus more on patient care and I have more confidence that important floor stock medication, including many that are used in critical emergencies, are properly replenished.”
— Shannon “JJ” Johnson, Pharm.D., Director of Pharmacy, Sharp
Memorial Hospital,
San Diego, CA

Next Generation RFID Smart Tag Product Development and Deployment
We are always innovating and always listening to our clients. Based on clinical research, MEPS Real-Time® recently developed and introduced a new Intelliguard® Smart Tag - 65% smaller than our competitor for specific applications such as kits and trays used by anesthesiologists and other urgent response healthcare providers.
The new Intelliguard® Smart Tag is easier to handle and less intrusive, and alleviates the potential for medication to become stuck in smaller cart drawers and trays.

The new Intelliguard® Smart Tag:

  • Provides a 100% accuracy rate when combined with our patented antenna system and our software replenishment process.
  • Is less obtrusive when manually reading the FDA-approved label provided by the drug manufacturer.
  • Does not need to be wrapped around the vials, and more easily fits on ampules and small vials.
  • Allows for ampules and vials to more easily fit in pockets of trays, kits and boxes.
  • Is a single smart tag solution for all medication packaging including syringes, ampules, vials, boxes and bags.

Next Generation Kit and Tray Management System Form Factors
MEPS Real-Time® has also created Kit and Tray Management Systems in new sizes and configurations to meet limited space requirements of some hospital pharmacies. Unique form factors include:
- Free standing cart with large enclosure
- Countertop enclosure
- Under counter reader

Intelliguard® Inventory Management System
Optimize Your Pharmacy Inventory Levels

Hospitals are under increasing pressure to conserve costs wherever possible. The Intelliguard® Inventory Management System uses RFID technology to provide real-time visibility and reduce hospital inventory costs for high-value, critical dose pharmaceuticals featuring Controlled Temperature Cabinets with preset temperature settings for Cold (2° - 8°C) or Controlled Room Temperature (20° - 25°C) storage.

With Intelliguard® Controlled Temperature Cabinets available in multiple sizes—from small under-counter to large-capacity models—your staff and administration will have immediate access to the information they need to:

  • Confidently reduce inventory and pre-paid inventory costs
  • Improve patient safety by reducing stock-outs
  • Increase inventory control through PAR-level, expiration and lot number alerts and reports

Real-Time Visibility
Using the latest RFID technology, the Intelliguard® Inventory Management System allows you to be able to quickly find and remove expired or recalled medication, and identify shortages to avoid stock-outs that can put patients at risk.

Intelliguard® Medication Management System
The Right Medication, The Right Dose, The Right Patient
