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 synchronized 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 HealthSight platform, our BD Pyxis automated dispensing and infusion technologies help pharmacies 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 improves accuracy, efficiency and visibility across the enterprise.
