The folks at Mediware say that their flagship pharmacy management suite, WORx, caters to large and complex healthcare environments, including major healthcare institutions and large state behavioral health networks. WORx includes pharmacy controls to streamline workflow, automate inventory controls, and provide accurate and efficient medication management for the general safety of patients. According to the company, WORx is an open technology that operates with most major EMRs and interfaces with automated dispensing systems, robots, and related departmental systems. In addition, optional add-ons provide a complete, closed-loop medication system that includes electronic ordering, bedside medication administration verification, and automated medication reconciliation. Other key capabilities include longitudinal patient histories, inventory management, adult and pediatric specific controls, multi-facility support, and pharmacist-to-nurse communication.
