Safety

Safety is a major concern for all those involved in long term care. Eliminating errors where possible and reducing the points at which errors may occur are a major focus for us at MedScend.

Eliminate hand written orders

Hand written orders can be difficult to read. This costs time and may lead to errors at several points. Nurses may have trouble interpreting instructions. Pharmacies may have trouble filling orders. MedScend produces clear and legible orders whether they are entered through the browser or hand held. In addition, MedScend translates SIG instructions into plain English.

Drug Interactions

Drug interactions are an important area of concern. Knowing all of the possible interactions between drugs in a patient's profile can be difficult without assistance. MedScend's solution provides point of care warnings when prescribing. This eliminates all of the points where an interaction can slip through unnoticed.

Drug Allergies

Drug allergies are another area of concern. Being aware of possible allergic reactions to medications being ordered is crucial to safe healthcare. MedScend's solution provides point of care warnings when prescribing. In addition to real time allergy checks, patient allergies are printed on the MAR, TAR , Physician Order and Interim Order reports. This eliminates all of the points where an interaction can slip through unnoticed.

Duplicate Therapy

Duplicate therapy checks are essential to patient safety. MedScend's solution provides point of care warnings when prescribing.
