Torbay and South Devon NHS FT rolls-out ePMA

Dedalus has rolled out its Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration (ePMA) solution at Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust.

The roll-out which took place at the end of January, covered six medical wards, one ambulatory unit and two emergency admissions units.

Gill Otway, IT Programme Manager mentioned; “The preparation for the roll-out was very thorough with as much clinical process evaluation, system configuration and pre-event training done as possible – although some training still inevitably had to be done during the weekend for bank nurses etc.  It was a superb team effort with all key staff well prepared in advance and the wards fully expecting and ready for the change.  Plus, there was a lot of behind-the-scenes support of our ePMA in Procurement and from Mike Green our CCIO.”

Dr Joanne Watson, System Medical Director, added; “The roll-out was a brilliant team effort and has been such a success that we want to spread to our remaining two adult medical wards and our five community hospital wards relatively quickly – hopefully by April. Not only can we reduce medication errors but we can also take more efficient control of Pharmacy and Formulary stocks to reduce costs.  And by stimulating a more efficient discharge of patients and supplying GPs with complete drugs and treatment information, we can begin to avoid unnecessary readmissions”
