Mediware Medication Management Software Features Safety Upgrades


April 9, 2008

The newest version of Mediware's medication management software suite reportedly offers enhanced data integration and functional improvements for tracking of medication orders, administrations and histories.

Version 3.0 is said to provide functional improvements to each application in order to streamline communication between clinicians throughout the hospital. It also includes integration points designed to ease collaboration with other systems within the client�s environment.

Specific product enhancements for the suite include updated safe medication practices information to meet JCAHO inpatient safety standards, improved medication profiles and clinical information, increased alerts and notifications and upgraded screens and displays.

Mediware's suite combines the company's MediREC, WORx, MediMA and MediCOE applications. MediREC includes automated medication reconciliation that electronically captures home medications and provides longitudinal medication records to support reconciliation throughout a patient's stay. WORx is a pharmacy management solution for inpatient and outpatient settings, including inventory management, online adjudication and Web-based access for remote users. MediMAR includes bedside administration and documentation tools designed to ensure the correct medications are delivered to the right patient at the right time. MediCOE�s electronic clinician ordering streamlines orders associated with poor handwriting or patient misidentification.
