Description: San Mateo Medical Center (SMMC) operates a high-volume-outpatient pharmacy at its main campus (approximately 600 prescriptions per day on weekdays), and SMMC is seeking a qualified vendor to provide pharmacy automatic dispensing device(s) (e.g., a robot) that meet the needs of the pharmacy. This may include a complete OP pharmacy management solution (i.e. claim check queuing system through point of sale completion of the transaction).

The proposed system and hardware must be compatible with (or replace) a wide variety of pharmacy management and workflow systems. The pharmacy currently uses Q-matic, a claim check queuing system, for the pharmacy information and point of sale transaction systems and Symphony, a workflow management system, from Innovation.
