Comment on Petition for change to Automated Dispensing Cabinet requirements

I am completely in support of changing 18VAC110-20-490 section 5. With increasing use of eMAR, CPOE, and other third party monitoring programs, users could effectively and efficiently be tracked and monitored. C2 Safe now allows perpetual inventory of controlled substances with easy electronic auditing.

The number of Pyxis machines being used in hospitals have increased significantly, requiring significant resources to keep up with the paper auditing.

I appreciate your consideration of this petition.
