Geisinger Implements MedEx System to Enhance Medication Delivery, Tracking
Date:7/8/2010

and biometrics capabilities built into the TUGs' secure carts, MedEx automatically creates an electronic chain of custody receipt (person, location, date/time) indicating when an item is placed in and removed from the TUG. The MedEx system's tracking capabilities extend to refrigerators, lock boxes, nurse servers, and automated dispensing cabinets to provide additional assurance that all medications have reached their final destination and have been properly stored.

"The move to the MedEx system was the next logical step in our ongoing efforts to identify leading-edge technologies to enhance medication security and implement innovative methods for the delivery of medications throughout the medical center that maximize the productivity of our technician staff," says John Jones, vice president of system therapeutics at Geisinger Health System.

In addition to improving regulatory compliance related to the delivery and storage of medications, MedEx solves one of the most prevalent and frustrating operational problems in pharmacies today – missing medications. "With an automatic and electronic chain of custody record, pharmacies no longer need to spend valuable time and money tracking or refilling medications because a delivered medication's location or receiver are unknown," says Zini.

According to Zini, other benefits the MedEx system brings include increased nursing time at the bedside, reduced order-to-delivery time, and greater peace of mind for patient and hospital staff.
