Keeping your EMM System Streamlined and Safe with Secure Medication Management Solutions
The challenge of adopting an Electronic Medication Management (EMM) system into healthcare centres and hospitals is using multiple systems within the organisation that needs to communicate with each other.
The issue with this is that the use of multiple systems is typically NOT strategically planned. As a result, the risk of a communication breakdown between physicians and other areas within the multidisciplinary team increases. This can also increase the risk of duplicate data and complex workflow within your organisation.
For an EMM system to be implemented effectively, the functionality must be tailored for your specific healthcare environment. This is true regardless of an established hospital rolling out a new system, or a new hospital implementing their EMM System for the first time.
Working with leading Hospital Equipment Suppliers to establish your EMM
This is where the Debtrek difference comes in. The team at Debetrek work with your primary stakeholders within the organisation to ensure the correct configuration of your EMM. We take a holistic approach when it comes to integrating medication management software and equipment. We ensure that the core pieces of medical equipment needed are integrated with the appropriate secure medication management software.
This helps to establish safety, security and communication around medication management. Here is an overview of the key pieces of equipment that we typically use when configuring Electronic Medication Management systems, including:
Modeus Drug Management Software
The first piece to consider when configuring your EMM is the software behind it. The Modeus HS8 Controlled Drug Management Software allows you to simplify your workflows. It is designed to be used across all areas in hospitals where controlled drugs are stored. This includes Theatres, Wards and Pharmacies.
The platform provides accurate controlled drug processes, and allows for seamless integration with existing systems. This helps to automate and streamline administrative tasks across different areas within the hospital.
The core benefits of the HS8 include:
Remote Medication Access Lock
The Remote Medication Access Lock is a wireless remote locking device, designed to provide governance in facilitating controlled drug management. The lock is temperature-controlled and can be attached to either the right-hand-side or left-hand-side of the safe.
As a leading distributor of medication lock box Australia, Debetrek integrates our Remote Medication Management Device with the HS8 Electronic Controlled Drug Platform. This ensures a holistic solution for hospitals and facilitates the reduction of controlled drug diversion.
The key benefits of using a lockable medicine box in hospitals include:
Automated Dispensing Cabinets
Using Automated Dispensing Cabinets (ADC) allows you to quickly and easily distribute the right medication to the right patient. It’s important that this solution is customisable for the unique needs of each individual hospital and healthcare facility. The solutions for Automated Dispensing Cabinets offered by Debetrek provide greater flexibility to adapt to different locations and facility needs. These cabinets are modular, which means they can be configured to store and manage all types of medications.
Key benefits of using an Automated Medication Dispensing System include:
Modular and Scalable Solutions
We provide modular and flexible solutions which can be scaled to your hospital’s changing needs. This allows for easier management based on changing locations, increased drug transaction volumes, storage capacity requirements and changing operational needs.
We offer a range of solutions including:
- Tabletop ADC
- Half Tower ADC
- Full Tower ADC
Reduction in Inventory Costs
Our flexible ADC options make it easy for hospitals to implement and adjust controlled drug requirements to fit into your individual budget. You can optimise your inventory much easier, and staff will be able to spend less time at the cabinet, with the medication management already delivered and ready to go.
Improve Patient Safety and Quality of Care
With medication costs continually rising, there are growing concerns around patient and staff safety. Using hospital automatic dispensing machines makes for a safer and more accurate medication delivery system. ADC’s help to minimise the risk of human error through drug diversion, missing doses, and medication errors.
Increase Staff Efficiency and Medication Tracking
Using an automated medication dispenser helps to increase the efficiency between pharmacy and nursing staff, allowing for more time to be focused on clinical activities. The correct setup of ADC’s also helps to ensure that your hospital is meeting strict Australian regulatory requirements by improving medication management and tracking.
