Use AutoPharm Remote Ordering to restock your clean room

Saw this on Jerry Fahrni’s Pharmacy Informatics blog today and thought I’d share the suggestion, as it addresses a major inconvenience that the USP 797-compliant cleanroom has created with the gowning and garbing requirements: moving in and out of the cleanroom to get supplies. Might not work for everyone, but for those with the right technology in place:

The AutoPharm software utilized by our carousels offers a function called “Remote Ordering”. Using the remote ordering function is really quite simple.

  1. Use the AutoPharm software to create a template containing items specific to the clean room.
  2. Create access to the template via any web browser (image 1 on the left below).
  3. Use the template to select items necessary to restock the clean room and place the order (image 2 in the middle below)
  4. The order appears in the the active orders queue in AutoPharm (image 3 on the right below). The order is pulled by the technician assigned to the carousel and taken to the clean room where it gets put away.
