IntelliDOT Bedside Medication Implemented at Halifax Regional Medical Center

August 18, 2008 - IntelliDOT Corp. said today Halifax Regional Medical Center, a 206-bed hospital in Roanoke Rapids, NC, has implemented IntelliDOT Bedside Medication Administration (IntelliDOT BMA).

The company said the IntelliDOT BMA integrates with the hospital’s existing MEDITECH Client/Server Healthcare Information System (HIS).

An integrated module of the IntelliDOT CAREt System, IntelliDOT BMA is reportedly the first wireless, nurse-centric workflow manager to connect caregivers with the information systems they need at the point-of-care. IntelliDOT BMA is designed to eliminate medication errors by matching the correct patient with the correct medication and method of delivery at the bedside. The medication administration system connects with any HIS or Laboratory Information System (LIS) and, with other modules, can expand the bedside safety net to vital signs collection, laboratory specimen collection, mother-baby breast milk matching and blood product administration.

At Halifax Regional, IntelliDOT BMA communicates with the hospital's MEDITECH HIS through a Quovadx Cloverleaf interface engine. Admissions, discharges, transfers (ADTs) and Pharmacy Encoded Orders (RDEs) are passed from MEDITECH via an HL7 interface and are sent wirelessly to IntelliDOT handhelds carried by nurses.
