Promoting safety, efficiency and accuracy.
Prescriptions can be administered within any appropriate environment, while providing several decision support options. Through utilisation of documented patient parameters, decision support aids the prescriber in safe and clinically appropriate prescribing practice. The care provider is then able to document a variety of information including medication details, adherence details, last dose date/time, and more.
Scanning a barcoded wristband ensures the right patient gets the right medication at the right time. The decision support available within the administration workflow helps provide safe and effective medications administration. These include early or late administration warning, dose too close warning, charting values or viewing result trends at the point of administration.
Whether a person is being discharged from hospital or they’re an outpatient, our solutions allow them easy access to the medication required. These workflows allow the nursing team to contact the pharmacists with the relevant prescription, as well as creating documentation for the patient so they can have a printed record for their own understanding and engagement that can be presented when required.
Ensuring that patients receive the correct medications at the right time at St George’s University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Within three months of go-live, interventions had more-than-halved at West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust, while there was a 13 percent reduction in non-value-added activity for pharmacists.
"Since we went live with e-prescribing, I have never had to wait for a drug chart to come back from pharmacy to assess what medication a patient’s on; I’ve never had to wait for the drug chart to be found before adjusting a medication."
— Helen Pardoe, consulting colorectal surgeon, Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
