Affordable Medication Order Management Tool Geared for Smaller Hospitals

March 19, 2008 — Cardinal Health recently released the Rxe-view solution that uses a hospital’s existing fax machines on nursing units to transmit paper medication orders into a digitized format that is viewable in the hospital pharmacy through a Web-based document management system.

All orders are then queued in a central location and prioritized by urgency, which enables faster review of patients’ medication orders.

The Rxe-view solution helps hospitals focus on safety, clinical and operational improvements through detailed metrics such as order volume by line, order turnaround times, and number of unapproved abbreviations, duplicate orders, medication error rates, said the company. In addition to these productivity and quality metrics, the system also tracks clinical consultations and hospital interventions according to safety issues and physician practices. The Rxe-view solution also has the capability to send medication orders to a centralized, 24-hour pharmacy during off hours without changing the order process on the nursing floor.
