Baxa Corp, a provider of medical devices and systems that automate pharmacy operations and increase patient safety, has added new features to DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Management System. The new features extend DoseEdge capabilities to include mobile dose tracking, pharmacist verification options and enhanced dose status monitoring.
DoseEdge users also gain access to extended scanning capabilities along with a range of configurable options that add new security parameters to the verification process. This enables new tracking options for scan-tracking doses outside the pharmacy. An easy-to-read, programmable Status Board displays key dose information to appropriate health-system staff, enabling pharmacists and technicians to spend more time focusing on patient safety and less time chasing lost doses.
Dennis Tribble, chief pharmacy officer of Baxa, said: “Now, health-system pharmacists can use a better, more robust, integrated system to safely and efficiently prepare a broader range of doses, including oral doses. Our team of pharmacy experts focused on key features that will give DoseEdge users further confidence during the IV and oral medication preparation processes, as well as flexible tools that will improve both verification and tracking.”
