Barcode 360™ Manager
Even though thousands of doses per day may scan correctly, just a few failed scans can impact patient safety, as well as your organization’s perception of BCMA. A common gap in a successful bar code medication administration model is having access to unit-dose, bar coded products that are easily incorporated into the institution’s barcode database. While this may seem like the least complex of the various components of a barcode medication administration system, in the end, the added complexities it creates can be the reason a BCMA system fails.
Equipping a pharmacy purchasing staff with the correct tools, knowledge and access to appropriate medications is a monumental task for all institutions undertaking a bar coding initiative today. The ultimate goal is to purchase as many unit-dose, bar coded and on-formulary products as possible in order to reduce on-site packaging efforts and expense. Especially in today’s manufacturing climate, pharmacies are often forced to select medications that are not immediately compatible with a hospital’s BCMA process. This can require a major capital and resource investment to repackage, and could lead to potential medication errors.
BarCode360™ Safety Optimizer helps you overcome these challenges by increasing your access to prepackaged, unit-dose, scan ready medications, including an industry leading portfolio of scan ready products—including liquids.
BarCode 360™ Safety Optimizer goes beyond bar coding. It:
- Automatically directs the hospital pharmacy toward readily available unit-dose–packaged and bar coded medications
- Simplifies the procurement of medication repackaged by third-party provider
- Minimizes on-site repackaging, reducing your opportunity for error
- Reduces the need for capital expenditure
