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.

With patient satisfaction and safety being tied to reimbursement, it’s more important than ever to improve nursing workflow across the health care enterprise, including long-term care settings.
Omnicell® automated dispensing cabinets (ADCs) allow you to improve how medications are managed.

Reduce long lines at the ADC—and reduce time spent removing medications by 33%—with Anywhere RN™ remote medication management software, which also helps prevent interruptions that lead to medication errors.
Reduce the number of places nurses need to hunt for medications with SinglePointe™ patient medication management software. This system enhances cartless distribution—decreasing missing doses, medication errors, and restock time.

The new MedSelect® Flex from AmerisourceBergen is designed to help busy clinicians achieve higher performance, greater reliability, and enhanced patient outcomes. Enabling the delivery of high-quality patient care, MedSelect Flex enhancements were designed to help you meet demanding medication administration needs. The system provides a True Unit Dose Module (UDM) for controlled substances, eliminating count-remaining after each dispense or shift and preserving valuable time for patient care. Single-item access drawers help to increase patient safety and reduce errors. With nearly double the capacity, MedSelect Flex accommodates additional SKUs and higher quantities, and the cabinets are customizable, modular and secure – ideal for pharmacy, nursing and other decentralized locations including the ER, OR and critical care. The system is also linked to a centralized database network that tracks up to 5 years cabinet inventory, usage by patient, by provider, and by other critical data so you can evaluate usage trends. And a new audit feature allows you to reconcile inventory and easily retrieve and report information which is especially important for tracking diversion. With the ability to integrate all cabinets, software and report writing systems, MedSelect Flex enables hospitals and healthcare providers to manage medications and supplies more cost-effectively and improve security and efficiency.
