Automated medication dispensing machines are common within hospitals nationwide. However, these machines only provide a piece of the total picture related to medication discrepancies, such as waste or diversions. Pharmacy directors may be familiar with the limitations of these machines, and have adopted business intelligence tools that specifically focus on these medication management machines. These tools can provide basic analytics from AcuDose and Pyxis systems, but still fail to connect to other important information that users need. Organizations are consequently left with tools that do not recognize the dynamic environments and financial concerns of healthcare institutions.
Viewics allows for organizations to look at AcuDose and Pyxis information alongside other source systems. For instance, the ability to combine utilization records from clinical information systems along with the medication reports from Pyxis machines will allow for better accountability and benchmarking measures. Pharmacy directors will be able to track what physicians are ordering and compare that information to medications that are taken out of dispensing machines versus what medications are actually being administered and documented. The VHIP solution allows the organization to track medications throughout the entire continuum of care, which extends beyond a single touch-point at a Pyxis machine and the immediate pharmacy department.
