PHARMACEUTICAL REPACKAGING

After a study by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) demonstrated that medical errors in the United States were the eighth leading cause of death, and adverse events cost approximately $37.6 billion each year with $17 billion of those costs associated with preventable errors, ROi took action.

 

We worked to optimize the supply chain all the way to the patient bedside with the development of a pharmaceutical safety program that involves centralized packaging to low unit of dose, dispensing and bar code scanning medications in single-dose form at the patient bedside.

 

Additional benefits to pharmaceutical repackaging include pharmacists spending less time dispensing pills and more time on clinical activities such as reviewing medication orders.

Launching this program involved establishing a repackaging operation at our Consolidated Services Center (CSC), as well as purchasing medication dispensing machines, bedside scanning and verification equipment. It also required training thousands of nursing and pharmacy co-workers and developing processes for ongoing monitoring and management.

The result is a system that uses bar code scanning, automated medicine dispensing cabinets and overall better use of technology to help doctors, pharmacists and nurses share information.
