Cascais' Hospital achieves Stage 6 of HIMSS with BIQ HS solutions

 

 

The Regional Director of Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Analytics, Dr. John Rayner recognized Cascais’ Hospital with the stage 6 standards of the EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM).
With the use of BIQHS new solution MAPP  - for closing the loop medication and safety in the blood tranfusion process, Cascais Hospital is the first Portuguese hospital achieving HIMSS Stage 6, and will join a relatively small group of hospitals across Europe who are currently meeting the Stage 6 criteria.
This recognition shows the importance of BIQHS new solution MAPP®, that combines Pharmatrac®, Btrac®, Milktrac® e Ekanban®.


   

(…) I was particularly impressed by their processes to ensure that technology assisted with the identification of the patient and the medicine thereby increasing levels of patient safety in this important area.
(…) Hospital de Cascais is the first real example of this in Portugal and will go on to join a relatively small group of hospitals across Europe (60) who are currently meeting the Stage 6 criteria
