Talyst, a provider of automated medication management solutions for long-term and post-acute care facilities, will exhibit under new ownership at the MHA Business Summit following its acquisition by Swisslog Healthcare in August 2017.
Swisslog Healthcare CEO Stephan Sonderegger said: "Increasingly, we are seeing a decentralization of care, away from the hospital to other care settings.
"This shift, coupled with the aging population, increases the need for greater efficiency through automation in long-term care facilities. Our in-facility packaging and dispensing model is helping LTC pharmacies expand their reach as well increase service levels through greater access to medications."
Market adoption of the in-facility model continues to gain momentum with greater regulatory acceptance. In 2017, Talyst (now Swisslog Healthcare) experienced more than a 30% increase in installations of their InSite® In-facility Medication Packaging and Dispensing System.
Today, InSite is deployed in hundreds of long-term care facilities nationwide, servicing thousands of patients and dispensing millions of doses.
Swisslog Healthcare's Long-Term Care division business development vice president Huan Nguyen said: "We partner with a network of forward-thinking pharmacies to help them expand their business, capturing additional short-cycle dispensing fees while significantly reducing pharmacy labor."
Talyst, a market leader in pharmacy automation solutions, is now part of Swisslog Healthcare. Together, the they are transforming medication management for long-term care facilities and pharmacies.
At the heart of the company's vision to lead change for better care is a focus on improving workflows and reducing the time clinicians spend doing routine and repetitive tasks – enabling more time to care for patients and residents.
In addition to long-term care automation, the company's solutions and services extend across the continuum of care, including transport, medication and supply chain automation for hospitals and health systems.
