The Pyxis® MedStation® system from CareFusion is the leading automated dispensing system supporting decentralized medication management.
Barcode scanning to help ensure accurate medication dispensing, features to prevent loading of the wrong medication and active alerts to provide an added safety precaution for high risk medications are just a few of the ways the Pyxis® MedStation® system can help your facility support safe and efficient medication management.


Anne DeGheest worked closely with the founding team of Pyxis to redefine a drug dispensing system for hospitals. She was instrumental in helping the founders modify and improve on their initial concept and product design to improve nursing satisfaction and decrease medication errors in hospitals. Pyxis is now the established and dominant market leader of this newly created $ 1 billion annual market. Pyxis went public in 1992 and was acquired by Cardinal for around $1 billion in 1996 and later spun off as part of Carefusion.

Anne DeGheest first did a study for Pyxis that indicated their initial product concept was not going to sell well, and she then helped them design the narcotics MedStation that broke open the entire market. One of the best consulting projects I’ve ever seen!
