Electronic Medicines Management

Features and benefits

  • Improves patient safety
  • Pharmacists spend more time on ward
  • More effective pharmacy workflow
  • Reduces medication errors
  • Saves time in ordering and dispensing
  • Integrates with hospital pharmacy system

Electronic Medicines Management (eMM) is the first essential part of any electronic prescribing implementation, designed to meet the needs of clinical pharmacists at the point of care, to ensure a closed loop from prescribing to dispensing.

eMM delivers a seamless flow of information between prescribing, pharmacy and administration processes, including stock management and finance, ensuring that all professionals involved can access necessary information.

Pharmacists can provide clinical services direct to patients on wards and influence prescribing decisions. By enabling medicines to be ordered electronically from the ward,  patients safety & clinical efficiency is improved. Integrated Clinical Decision Support  helps you identify & prevent dangerous drug interactions or allergic reactions.

The solution can be mapped to support local protocols and processes including ‘Individual Patient Dispensing’ (IPD), ensuring that the system is tailored to your requirements.
