Point-to-Point Medication Safety

APRIL 01, 2006

Omnicell (Mountain View, Calif) recently introduced the Point-to-Point Medication Safety solutions for the point of use and point of administration. The product integrates with the OmniRx medication dispensing cabinets and the Safety RN bedside medication administration system, which adds 6 new medication safety checks and improves nursing work flow at both the cabinet and the patient bedside. The 6 points of medication safety added by the Point-to-Point Medication Safety solutions include SafetyStock barcode confirmation at the medication cabinet, using bar codes to verify that the correct medication is stocked in the correct cabinet bin; SafetyStock verification that the correct medication is obtained at the time of use; allergy alerts provided at both the point of use and point of administration for nonpharmacy-reviewed orders; identification of due medications, preventing errors of omission as well as errors of duplication; SaftyMed RN use of bar codes to verify accuracy of patient medications; and generation of dispense versus administration reports, which track compliance and enhance call 800-850-6664 billing accuracy.
