Project Description

Pharmacy Request provides a mobile request platform and workflow for the Pharmacy DMS (Document Management System). This system was developed as part of the initial trial of PBS charts in private and public hospitals.

Utilising a supported mobile device (Android or iOS), the image of the medication chart (or order) is captured at ward level and transferred electronically to the pharmacy. Here it enters a workflow for processing and recording in the dispensary. The chart image is stored within Pharmacy DMS alongside other scanned prescription images for full PBS claim integration.

The Pharmacy Request System has been implemented in private, and public hospitals. Both onsite and offsite pharmacies have successfully implemented the system.

Key benefits of the system:

  • It improves efficiency both for the pharmacy and for the ward staff. Given how busy staff are within the healthcare industry, additional efficiency is important to reduce potential errors.
  • The system is paper-free! Not only great for the environment, also saves on photo copies and storage costs.
  • The system has been designed with hospital-level security in mind. Documents can be stored within hospital/pharmacy infrastructure, and mobile app communication is direct and encrypted.
