Texas Health Resources

Project Description:
Nonprofit healthcare delivery system Texas Health Resources has implemented barcode medication verification (BMV) technology in its electronic health records medication administration record (eMAR) to reduce medication errors. Adding BMV at the bedside lets nurses and other clinicians automatically document the administration of drugs. By scanning the barcodes on a patients wristband and their medications, caregivers easily compare that information to data readily available in the eMAR and validate that the medication and patient match. Using BMV technology ensures increased accuracy and efficiency for caregiver because it provides quicker and easier access to critical information needed to manage patient care.
