Cubex Systemdrive medication safety and nursing efficiency


The Cubex System automated medication dispensing system supports decentralized medication management with various features for safety and efficiency. The system helps accurately dispense medication, while supporting pharmacy workflows.

In an effort to improve clinical outcomes, patient satisfaction scores and profitability, hospitals are taking a close look at their medication management system. Studies have found that the path medication takes from the pharmacy to the patient can be error-prone and inefficient. These challenges often increase risks and costs, delay therapies and complicate efforts to meet regulatory requirements.

From pharmacy to nursing to the patient, there has to be a better way to get medications to the right patient without delay. And there is.
