IT personnel and pharmacists alike will appreciate the fact that Meditech's Pharmacy Solution system supports the full spectrum of medication delivery, including CPOE, medication reconciliation, e-prescribing, and barcoded medication administration. All the products share a single formulary, medication administration record, allergy record, and medication history, allowing all clinicians to base their decisions on the most up-to-the-minute patient data.

According to the company, medications are easily reconciled and converted across all care settings with no reentry required. Prescriptions are passed electronically to either the inpatient pharmacy or to outside retail or mail-order pharmacies, eliminating handwritten scripts. The software helps pharmacists reduce clinical errors with intelligent warnings, messages, and rejection notices; gain immediate access to clinical information from throughout the enterprise; access all relevant data from a single centralized processing screen; and minimize lost revenue with the option to charge on administration.

In addition, the system provides the ability to process medications from a single centralized process screen; a pharmacy dispensing system interface to maintain proper inventory levels; and a formulary service interface.
