guiding light technology to increase medication safety and delivery at the
Anywhere RN: This web-based application allows nurses to review and
select medication orders remotely from virtually any hospital workstation,
including the Savvy mobile medication system. Using Anywhere RN, nurses are

dispensing cabinet. Omnicell cabinets offer flexible systems that help ensure
patient safety by enabling healthcare professionals to reduce medication
errors, monitor and control medication.
