Medication Management for more patient safety
Professional and timely handling of medicines is a prerequisite for guaranteeing the health and safety of patients. Therefore, you should take a responsible approach to organising your pharmaceutical supply and rely on a structured management of medicines to avoid medication errors and supply bottlenecks. An automated medication management system supports you in this process: to avoid errors and increase patient safety.
Why is medication management so important?
At a glance, you benefit from the following advantages:
- Better treatment results
- More efficient working methods for healthcare professionals
- Time saving for the nursing staff
- Qualitatively and quantitatively better supply process
- Fewer medication errors
- Increased patient safety
- Better quality of care
- Reducing costs
- Automation of manual work steps
By combining transport, data processing and patient-specific dosage, you can create a holistic approach to ensure optimal medicine delivery for your patients. This ensures that the right medication is available at the right time and in the right place - without additional time expenditure.
In which areas is medication management useful?
Automation solutions for hospital pharmacies
Hospital pharmacies also benefit from streamlined workflows and the efficient inventory that medication management offers. Robotic dispensing allows you to maintain an overview of the inventory management of your medicines packaging, storage and retrieval. This results in the following advantages:
- Safe therapy administration
- Exact dosage
- Optimised stock levels
- Increased efficiency
- Maximum productivity
- Improved dispensing of medication
Medication management automation is a also valid support for consolidated service centres. Hospitals can network with each other, to centralise the purchasing and warehousing of medicines and medical supplies. Medications are stored centrally in an automated warehouse, and then delivered to the hospital based on schedules and consumption. This results in optimised medication availability, data analytics, but most of all, it is possible to significantly reduce waste and the cost of stock.
Transport automationAn important part of medication management is automated medication transport, which makes it possible to track medication dispensing from the central pharmacy to the patient. The fully integrated medication management software solution allows you to track the route of the medicines and thus, increase patient safety in the hospital and ensure proper treatment. In addition, you increase traceability and response time because you always know which destination each drug has arrived at. Transportation is carried out via a pneumatic tube system or with the help of hospital delivery robots, for example, which can save considerable time and costs.
