According to the U.S. National Pharmaceutical Council, preventable medical errors account for between 44,000 and 98,000 deaths a year, and cost the medical industry $17 billion annually. Due to overworked staff, transcription errors and misread physician orders, patients can be given the wrong medication, the wrong dose or a medication that has a bad interaction with a previously administered drug. With Winola Lake Health IT's medication verification solutions, you can eliminate preventable medical errors by confirming the right patient, the right drug, the right dose, the right route and the right time – all at the bedside.
Winola Lake Health IT provides caregivers with barcode scanners to electronically verify data on wristband barcodes against the data on barcoded medications and blood products. The result is safer, more accurate and more efficient medication administration. Winola Lake Health IT also helps streamline the workflow process by providing various point-of-care devices with either wireless or tethered barcode scanners. By combining medication verification software with the right technology, Winola Lake can make a difference for your hospital and its patients.
