Tracking and waste of controlled substances by anesthesia providers

What are the key steps for the anesthesia providers to accurately log, charge, track and capture waste when using the pyxis or a similar dispensing system in the operating rooms in your facility? An anesthesiologist here is requesting more real-time accountability rather than being asked by pharmancy days later to account for wastage.
