Automated Dispensing System – Electronic Drug Imprest & Automated Robotic Medication System

Bendigo Health is looking to join the age of automation which will help free up valuable pharmacy staff time for more important direct patient care. Two automated pharmacy systems that will be used across the entire hospital will improve safety, efficiency and costs associated with medicine use and management.

An ARMS can store up to 40,000 items and quickly deliver medicines direct to a pharmacist and prepare medication for ward Electronic Drug Imprests. It does the mundane work of pharmacy departments and saves a lot of time in the dispensary; basically doing paperwork and producing labels. Importantly for direct patient care, an ARMS will free up Pharmacy staff time for more high-level activities.

This system will ensure Bendigo Health remains at the forefront of technology required in a busy modern hospital pharmacy that is focused on patient care.

Ophthalmic Microscope & Retinal Machine

Sight is so precious. If you suffer a serious eye injury, or from a health condition or disease that risks your eyesight, surgery may be the only way to save your sight.

An ophthalmic microscope is specially designed to magnify parts of the eye’s anatomy. Fortunately today’s sophisticated microscopes give surgeons much greater illumination and visualisation that their micro-surgical techniques demand for repairing and restoring eyesight. To reduce the waiting times for this surgery and provide treatment closer to home for this region: we are raising money for an ophthalmic microscope that will enable our surgeons to perform high level eye surgery at Bendigo Health.
