Abbotsford selects Mediware’s WORx medication management system to boost efficiency

Mediware Information Systems : 16 April, 2008  (Application Story)
Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre in British Columbia has selected Mediware’s WORx ‘Closed-Loop’ Medication Management system to improve the efficiency of medication management from order to administration to reduce potential for costly medication errors.
Published studies have reported some 700,000 adverse drug events occur every year and one in five medication doses administered in hospitals are given erroneously.

Mediware’s ‘Closed-Loop’ suite delivers an integrated data management solution that connects doctors, nurses and pharmacists with real-time information and documentation capabilities to dramatically reduce error possibilities. The suite consists of four modular components that leverage a single database to form a closed-loop.

According to John Damgaard, Mediware’s senior vice president and chief operating officer, medication management processes have come under scrutiny as hospitals continue to struggle with time-consuming and sometimes inaccurate data collection and transmission. Mediware’s seamless, closed-loop approach links the core components of the medication-use process.

“From prescribing to dispensing, to administration and documentation, each care provider is connected to a single source of information that gives real-time notification of the patient’s status,” Damgaard said. “In addition to centralising the entire medicine management process in one database, another major benefit of the closed-loop approach is complete elimination of manual and handwritten processes, a major source of medication errors.”
