The medication feature reduces harm and improves efficiency in medication administration.
Globally, medication error is one of the main causes of adverse events and patient injury, and a common cause of hospital mortality. Using the app to see and document a patient’s medication helps ensure the medication is right and significantly improves patient safety.
The integrated barcode scanner within the app enables positive patient identification. It permits closed-loop medication administration by checking for the right medicine, dosage and administering method at the right time. All medication-related information is fetched in real time from the Electronic Health Record. Bi-directional integration with the record allows writeback to document the administration in the medication record (MAR).
The application allows administration and documentation of scheduled or when required (PRN)/one-time medication.
