Porter Adventist Hospital
Advance medication safety and workflow efficiency through automation
Porter Adventist wanted an automated system to replace its existing system that required filling out forms by hand and spending a lot of time on the phone.
A multidisciplinary team of directors of pharmacy, IT directors, pharmacists and nurses chose to implement the Pyxis Connect physician order management system.
According to a pre- and post-installation study, the order turnaround time decreased by 62% and the orders verified in less than an hour increased to 90.7%*.
"We were having some one-unit storage rooms losing $19,000 in charges a month. We quickly realized that to control inventory in the OR, it would take a lot more than just color-coding, moving stock around and cleaning up. That's what drove us to consider the secure supply automation solutions." Randy Sauls Chief Operating Officer
