Compounding workflow

Errors are continually a top concern, with one five-hospital study showing a 9% rate of IV admixture compounding errors.1 To minimize preventable errors, pharmacists are turning to automation that helps improve accuracy, standardize practise and streamline workflow from medication preparation to delivery.

Backed by the BD Care Coordination Engine, our compounding workflow software enables formulary interoperability and helps reduce probability of errors via a combination of gravimetrics, barcode verification and a step-by-step guidance system. Available with optional, camera-based hardware, our solution provides visual documentation of vial, syringe and IV container information during each gravimetric step.
