Talyst and MultiCare Partner to Improve Patient Safety
Date:12/8/2009

Pharmacy automation tools set new standard for tracking medication administration and inventory control.

(PRWEB) December 8, 2009 -- This week, at the 44th Annual Midyear Clinical Meeting of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists in Las Vegas, Talyst announced a partnership with MultiCare Health System, a Tacoma-based not-for-profit health care system and the largest provider of health care services in Pierce, South King, Kitsap and Thurston counties. MultiCare selected Talyst for its full solution in pharmacy automation.

MultiCare conducted a thorough vendor selection process which included industry research followed by requests for proposals, on-site vendor visits and reference checks.

“MultiCare chose Talyst for its ability to assist us in meeting our ongoing strategic patient safety goals for providing the safe administration of medications,” says Florence Chang, Senior VP, Clinical Support Services & Chief Information Officer. “This technology is just another added benefit to a long list of reasons for health care organizations to implement electronic health record systems, such as MultiCare Connect.”

“With modern tools and technologies for monitoring the safe administration of medication there is no excuse for medication mix-ups,” said Carla Corkern, Talyst CEO and chairman of the board. “Our partnership with MultiCare demonstrates their commitment to heightened patient safety standards.”

Talyst’s pharmacy automation technology provides additional controls and inventory tracking within the pharmacy and gives a foundation for improving patient safety through barcode administration at the patient’s bedside. Implementation of this technology will benefit patients across all four MultiCare hospitals as part of its integrated electronic health record system, called MultiCare Connect, which also utilizes computer physician order entry software to improve patient care.
