Medication management

Within a 300-bed hospital, nurses may administer up to 4,000 medication doses daily across all patient care areas.1 Pharmacy, nursing and IT must be synchronised to provide the correct medication and avoid costly mistakes. To ensure medication safety, patient satisfaction and sound financial performance, hospitals and health systems must take a closer look at their medication management system.

Backed by the BD Care Coordination Engine, our automated dispensing and infusion technologies help pharmacy efficiently dispense, track and deliver all medications - so nurses have what is needed for patients. Along with our inventory management and compounding technologies, the solution can help to improve accuracy, efficiency and visibility across the enterprise.
