Medicine Distribution Management System
Medicine distribution management refers to the clinical, cost-effective and safe use of medicines to ensure patients get the maximum benefit from the medicine they need, while at the same time, minimising potential harm to the patient/residents.
Challenges & Benefits
With a shortage of qualified medical professionals, mistakes can occur when it comes to the dispensing and administering of medicine to patients and residents in an eldercare facility. The medicine distribution management system thus faces the pressure of having to be as seamless and well-integrated as possible so that errors are minimised without affecting the quality of life and care for the individual.
MindWave’s Value-Added Approach
A seamless medicine distribution management system is a critical area to the well-being of patients. MindWave’s RFID-based Eldercare solution helps to improve medicine inventory management and reduces the risk of dispensing incorrect prescriptions. Hence, an accurate match between residents and administered medications are made in order to ensure the safety of residents, as well as provide a basic foundation for preventing errors. The RFID system implementation will ensure the effectiveness of the five Rights – Right Patient, Right Medication, Right Dose, Right Time, and Right Route. It also provides a platform to extend safeguards to other patient care procedures such as specimen collection and management, and blood administration. The three-step verification process includes the nurse scanning his/her name tag, the prescribed medicine and a match with the resident’s RFID wristband before administering the medicine.
Our MindMart® platform provides statistics trending on punctuality in medicine distribution.
