Software, Automation System

Definition : Software designed to control a system that performs a specialized procedure that can follow a pre-established program with minimal human intervention, through a user interface, or a combination of both (i.e., an automation system). This software usually interacts with the hardware needed to perform the mechanical operations and that shares the same information protocol. Automation system software is intended to work only with one or a few models of automation systems and related devices, usually supplied from the same manufacturer and/or configured according to particular healthcare facility requirements. The system also facilitates the processing and/or sending of information from the automation system to and from picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and/or other hospital information systems. The software is not usually available separate from the automation system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment. Dedicated automation system software intended for the operation of clinical laboratory, surgery, medication and/or supplies dispensing, and other particular procedures is also available.
