Before every surgery, your ASC must document the patient’s medical history, including all current medications. At the end of the surgery, the surgeon needs to review these medications and reconcile them with any new medications the surgeon may prescribe for the patient. Traditionally, collecting medication data is labor intensive and often inaccurate, as patients may be confused about the details of their prescribed medications.
With AmkaiCharts Medication Reconciliation interface with the Surescripts™ Network, you can virtually access the nation’s largest health information network to identify and automatically import the most accurate list of medications your patient is taking, including name, dosage, frequency and route. This can greatly reduce or even eliminate a nurse’s need to manually enter medications into the patient’s record.
AmkaiCharts’ Medication Reconciliation interface can help your ASC:
- Save time and labor-related costs by reducing the need for staff to type in patient medication data.
- More effectively manage the risk of adverse drug effects.
- Support better-informed treatment decisions.
