When it comes to medication, patient safety risks abound if the right technology isn’t in place. Particularly when it comes to the complexity of translating free text prescription instructions from multiple formulary service vendors into accurate and discrete information in your pharmacy system. Or when accurately matching a prescribed drug to a drug on the pharmacy shelf. And especially when it comes to dramatically reducing the potential for transcription errors.
DrFirst’s patented SmartSuite artificial intelligence tools make accurate patient medication data from the provider’s electronic health record (EHR) system immediately consumable by the pharmacy’s system with fewer clicks and keystrokes. This reduces the risks of data entry and dispensing errors that could mean the difference between a patient receiving 1.0 mg and 10 mg of a medication, for example.
Hospitals and health systems have been using DrFirst’s SmartSuite AI family of solutions since 2015 to enhance the quality of more than 6 million medication records per day. Now, with SmartSuite for Pharmacy, pharmacies can realize the patient safety and time-saving benefits that come with translating, inferring, and normalizing data into consistent formats that are clinically actionable and able to trigger a variety of safety checks, such as allergy and interaction alerts.
