IU Health Tipton welcomed a new robot at the end of September, WALDO (Wonderful Assistant for Labs, Drugs and Other stuff). The robot will support Lab and Pharmacy teams by delivering samples from units to the lab and medications to hospital units. This pilot project will last for four months, and at the end of the pilot period, its success will be evaluated. The goal is to reduce the time team members spend delivering items between units.
IU Health North also has a robot, IU-D2, which is also operating under a four-month pilot program.
