PharmaTrac® is a bedside scanning solution designed to ensure patient safety through the validation of medication administration.
PharmaTrac® allows healthcare providers to close the loop of the medication cycle by allowing the Pharmacy to create a 2D barcodes to be placed in the unit dose packages containing all relevant information of the medications including lot number and expiry date.
At the patient bedside nurses use a handheld device to compare 3 elements:
2. Patient prescription;
3. Medication to be administered.
This is achieved by scanning the wristband of the patient and by scanning each individual drug before administration. Pharmatrac® will compare each of these drugs with the prescription of the patient making sure that they are correct.
