The InSite* System features powerful software and durable hardware components, designed to improve the control and efficiency of your medication, packaging, delivery, storage and dispensing process. Our automated system will improve access to medication, reduce the time needed to prepare for daily medication passes, reduce mediation waste and helps clinicians improve medication safety.

The InSite System automates up to 240 oral solid medications in a single, in-facility medication packaging unit and allows for user-defined, patient-specific labels on each dose packaged. The system is compact and easy-to-use, and can recognize priority orders for immediate packaging. The user-friendly touch screen interface provides directed workflow to improve overall efficiency.


InSite Enterprise Software is efficient, easy-to-use, and provides workflow guidance to help prevent medication errors. It enables real-time integration with your current pharmacy management system and helps ensure stored medications are accessed by the right facility staff, packaged for a specific patient, and tracked at delivery. The following workflows are supported: Routine Dispense, New Orders, PRNs, Re-Dispense, Leave of Absence, and e-Kit Request.

ACRS-II Chip The Automatic Canister Recognition System 

(ACRS) uses an installed chip to establish a unique identifier for each canister. InSite looks for the pharmacistchecked medication identifier, not the canister location, so the canisters can be placed in any open InSite packaging position. ACRS improves safety by helping to eliminate errors.
