Part of the Medway suite of integrated patient administration and clinical software modules, Medway e-Prescribing is an intuitive, safe and complete alternative to traditional paper prescription charts.
Prescription medications are among the most commonly used treatments in healthcare, but written prescriptions are prone to error and miscommunication, which sometimes results in patient harm.
Medway e-Prescribing completely removes these risks by providing full and clear instructions to those who administer medicines, thereby reducing adverse drug events and potentially reducing costs through improved process efficiency.
Whereas many e-prescribing systems in the UK are extensions of existing pharmacy dispensing and stock control systems, Medway e-Prescribing has been designed by clinicians to specifically support hospital prescribing and medicine administration. The design extensively incorporates ‘NHS Common User Interface’ guidance, and a secondary care prescribing model that allows prescriptions to be created for a drug and route as an alternative to product-based prescribing.
As a part of the Medway suite, e-Prescribing also has access to other types of patient information, such as clinical documentation and laboratory results.
System C uses experienced clinicians, including a clinical safety specialist, in all stages of Medway e-Prescribing; from design, development and testing, through to deployment and support.
