Points of Difference MediSense ADCs have been revamped since the original release based off feedback from our customers with the release of AMDT200 (automated medication dispensing technology). Our new cabinets now are larger capacity than our competitors. Which means that pharmacies can store more line items per cabinet allowing nurses to have a larger variety of medications on the floors to provide their patients with. Also, we have incorporated label and receipt printers, which allow nursing staff to print labels for Large Volume Fluids (LVF) to be in compliance with Joint Commission Office (JCO) regulations. We have redesigned our locking drawers to a better configuration, provided the customer with more options for storing narcotics. MediSense …show more content…

It’s not simply the particular giving of the medications that fare up all the time. It is checking the medical record with the hand written prescriptions, grouping the varied medications and also the instrumentation for giving them, and ensuring all the patients safety measure are covered.
The MediMinder also comes with a complimentary app that can be used with any hand held device that will alert family members when medication has not been taken when scheduled promoting peace of mind. The app will also send refill alerts and allows the dispenser to be unlocked remotely in the event the key is misplaced. The MediMinder contains a vast number of different programmable options so that medications can be dispensed at multiple times per day if needed, which is an option unavailable with any other competitor’s unit. It is also designed to be space-saving in size while offering a wide variety of decorative options to compliment any setting. The MediMinder supports company G’s mission statement beautifully by improving the life of its customers through electronic innovation, cost effectiveness and convenience.
Froedtert has committed themselves to bringing innovative medicine and technology to its patients at an affordable cost. Just recently, Froedtert has begun using the eMar system which helps improve patient safety and reduces documentation. The eMar system has been proven to reduce medication administration errors by 30% as well as a 45% reduction in documentation time. Froedtert is on the ground-floor of using emerging technologies which allows them to continually improve the quality care that they provide while maintaining healthcare costs.
The system in place in the office setting is relatively new. However, they have been able to accomplish many beneficial features to optimize patient care. The system is connected to a larger network of providers and hospitals. This integration allowed for steam lined communication
Unfortunately, with five medication aides and two managers all doing filing, records often get misplaced, whether they are put in the wrong section of the expand-a-file, filed under the wrong section of a resident’s binder or accidently get deposited into the secure shredding container. The implementation of a new health documentation system would be a marked improvement to the current system.
Medication errors are among the most significant cause of patient injury in all types of medical errors (Johnson, Carlson, Tucker, & Willette, n.d). In the nursing profession, medication administration errors occur 34% of the time, second only to physician ordering errors (Gooder, 2011). The introduction of information technology, such as the Bar Code Medication Administration (BCMA), offers new opportunities for reducing medication administration errors. BCMA was developed by the Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center in 1998 to help improve the documentation of medication administration, decrease medication errors and provide
The following articles were reviewed for the purpose of addressing bar code scanning in medication administration. Nursing requires the critical skill of accurate medication administration. The use of electronic medication administration has brought about many changes in the healthcare field. The article,” What Determines Successful Implementation of Inpatient Information Technology Systems” (Spetz et al 2012), was reviewed to address the above question. Computerized patients records and bar-code medication systems continue to gain favor in healthcare. This idea spread across the nation in all VA sites (Spetz et al., 2012, p. 157), providing a safer environment for patient care.
This system has proven success in working with hospitals of this size. The hospital already utilizes many pieces of patient equipment which have platforms which interface easily with the Cerner®. This will allow the nursing, pharmacy, physician and respiratory care staff to pull patient care data from the devices into the on line documentation forms. Cerner® is certified for meaningful use.
Encourage the use of computer-generated or electronic medication administration records. Plan for the implementation of computerized prescriber order entry systems. Consider the use of machine-readable code (i.e., bar coding) in the medication administration process. Use computerized drug profiling in the pharmacy. Be a demanding customer of pharmacy system software; encourage vendors to incorporate and assist in implementing an adequate standardized set of checks into computerized hospital pharmacy systems (e.g., screening for duplicate drug therapies, patient allergies, potential drug interactions, drug/lab interactions, dose ranges, etc.)”.

The Medi-Can Medicine Dispenser & Alarm can help the user to take the correct amount of their medication at the correct time. The Medi-Can is a hexagon-shaped container that can hold up to 12 different pills in labeled containers. The Medi-Can container is made out of plastic with 12 dials, 12 screens, and 1 tray with a weight sensor. There is a specific dial on each container holding a certain pill. The user can set a dial to the time period at which they need to take their medication. The user can also select the amount of each medication that needs to be taken on the digital screen below each dial. The Medi-Can will dispense the user’s medication into the tray when it is time for the certain medication to be taken. An alarm will sound when
Nursing in today?s society involves more than technical skills, critical thinking, and compassion. It also is changing to add the ability to not only understand but be able to utilize technology to impact a patient?s health. There are many technological changes employed in healthcare practices, however, I have chosen to address bar-code medication administration or BCMA. According to an article in the Journal of Patient Safety, ?bar-code medication administration has been shown to be effective in reducing patient medical errors, yet is still only utilized in 5% of the country?s health care facilities? (Sands, Slebodnik, & Young, 2010). Medication errors are common in hospitals and often lead not only to patient harm, but also lengthy hospital stays and law suits. ?One study identified 6.5 adverse events related to medication use per 100 inpatient admissions, more than one fourth of these events were due to errors and were therefore preventable? (Bane, et. al., 2010).
Distribution: With the growth of medical IT, retailers need to include telemedicine products to keep up with consumer demand. Strong national distributors like Shoppers and London Drug have already established themselves as trustworthy suppliers of healthcare products and give strong brand equity to the products they stock.
Set-up and workflow of my pharmacy is pretty good for patient centered care. Patient does not have to wait too long for their prescriptions to be filled. Patients can call for their refills via telephone or online, which makes their life easy as they don’t have bother coming in-person for refills. Patient profile shows all medication history as well as number of refills remaining. This makes it easy for pharmacist to know whether to refill a prescription or call doctor for refill request. After confirming to fill a prescription pharmacist runs claim through insurance and print label after claim is successful. All medication is arranged alphabetically on shelves, thus it is easy and quick to retrieve. Then after technician fills medication and then pharmacist checks it. This workflow is quite smooth and quick to process. Final check is done by pharmacist, who confirms right medication for right patient as well as the NDC dispensed, amount dispensed, direction for use, and day supply. All these steps of process take place on working table in sequential order, which helps to reduce errors in filling and have effective prescription filling. Once the prescription is filled pharmacist do all paper
