Medical automation is an emerging area that is bringing the efficiency tools and methods developed by our most successful corporations to the practice of medicine. Presenting a new systems engineering approach to controlling medical processes, this cutting-edge resource shows you how to reduce time, cost, and errors by at least 50%. The book offers you a solid understanding of medical automation principles and the latest applications in the field. You discover how computers and devices can be used to schedule personnel and services, and help maintain a just-in-time, lean, and more affordable medical services. You learn how to automate your pharmacy and laboratory services for maximum profit and minimum turnaround time. Moreover, this forward-looking book helps you determine how nanotechnology is evolving to solve difficult medical challenges. This practical volume explains how hospitals are automating their pharmacy supply systems to reduce waiting time for medications and virtually eliminate mis-dosing, delayed dosing, or incorrect dosing of patients. The book also shows you how to automate your clinical laboratory, helping you decrease the need for rapid (or STAT) testing, eliminate the shortage of trained medical technologists, and increase profitability without the need to increase costs.
