Via Christi Health's ePharmacy enhances patient safety by providing hospitals with remote order entry support. ePharmacy provides coverage when hospitals need it — during periods of high volume after hours when the hospital's pharmacy is closed.
Kansas licensed pharmacist receive faxed or scanned medication orders sent by hospitals. A pharmacist checks for such items as allergies, drug interactions and appropriate dosage. The pharmacist will then verify and document the order for the hospital.
ePharmacy can benefit hospitals by:
- Improving patient safety
- Increasing access to a hospital pharmacist
- Decreasing turnaround times for effective medication dispensing and management
- Improving work environments for nurses and pharmacists due to an increase in support
ePharmacy was developed in concert with the pharmacy directors at Via Christi Health's affiliated hospitals.
