EnovateIT Selected by Novant Health to Update Bedside Medication Verification Program

EnovateIT working hand-in-hand with Metrologic (now a Honeywell Company) wins the opportunity to facilitate and educate Novant Health.

Ferndale, MI (PRWEB) December 21, 2008 -- EnovateIT, a national provider of medical technologies for the healthcare environment teamed with Metrologic, now a Honeywell company, to provide over 800 bar-coding medication verification scanners to Novant Health.

Novant Health, began replacing the existing scanners with Metrologic 2D image scanners at the request of their nursing staff, who was frustrated with the integrity of the older technology. The new Metrologic MS1633 FocusBT Scanners were integrated to assist healthcare professionals with bedside medication verification (BMV) by scanning the 1D and 2D bar codes found on medications and patient wristbands. The resulting partnership has led to marked improvements in the execution of the five rights of the patient safety initiative, and has significantly increased the productivity of the pharmacy at Novant

As chief innovators in the field of healthcare safety, EnovateIT and Metrologic's strategic partnership ensured that their client not only had access to around-the-clock customer service, but also educated the nursing staff on all aspects of the MS1633 FocusBT Scanners, including bar code scanning, bedside and pharmacy workflow, pharmaceutical parsing requirements, communication protocols and recommendations for pre-implementation and ongoing training. "We piloted the solution with the nursing staff at each facility, and were there to support the customer twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, " remarked Kerstin Haase, Regional Sales Manager for EnovateIT. "We also assisted in the development of nursing education documents and provided in-service BMV education about the differences in technology between the new scanner and the old."

Novant Health is ranked fourth among the Top 100 integrated healthcare networks in the United States, according to Verispan, a research firm that evaluates healthcare systems. Novant ranked seventh last year and is the highest ranked health system in North Carolina.
