White Paper – The Importance of Interoperability for Medicines Management

“The management of medicines within our hospital settings is largely dependent on manual processes. These are time-consuming to operate, prone to errors through slips, lapses, and short cuts, they lack governance, and they remove staff from direct clinical contact with patients. 

We have often dreamt of a system of care with medicines which is provided through integrated digital systems using data and where patient safety is paramount. This is interoperability.”  

– Professor Liz Kay, Clinical Pharmacist and Retired Clinical Director of Medicines Optimisation.  

Within this white paper, you will discover: 

  • The need for interoperability, and its capability to open endless possibilities for efficient and smart technology in healthcare through simplifying the communication and delivery of clinical information across a hospital. 

  • The importance of industry experience when it comes to introducing automation with the capacity for interoperability, allowing for future-proof spending and maximizing the value of new technology. 

  • The power of data for medication and healthcare supplies management, making it easily accessible and how it can be harnesses to support healthcare in making more informed and smarter decisions. 

  • The long-term future, and how it doesn’t stop with data alone. Interoperability technology solutions, data and AI have the power to change the healthcare landscape beyond recognition.
