Australian-first: Blacktown Hospital prescriptions go digital
"Patients will be out of hospital sooner thanks to a digital initiative launched at Blacktown Hospital. The new system makes paper prescriptions a thing of the past, with patients’ discharge medications sent directly to pharmacists on a digital program called the ‘WatchList’ that was piloted by Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD). WSLHD eMeds manager Liz Ellankil said prescriptions now reach pharmacists instantly and they are automatically notified, saving nearly 40 minutes per patient on average." The facility is using TouchPoint Medical AccessPoint workstations on wheels as part of this deployment. Click the link below to read the full story.
