The famous Benjamin Franklin quote states, "It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it." In healthcare, a drug diversion can be that one bad incident. Statistics from The Joint Commission indicate about 10 percent of healthcare workers are abusing drugs.
Addressing this reputation risk and improving patient safety involve enhancing the visibility of the entire medication life cycle. Analyzing pharmaceuticals as they come into the system and move to their intended purpose give an understanding of the who, what, and why around diversion.
Medacist offers healthcare leaders an analytics engine powering data and algorithms to identify diversion risks through pattern recognition–learned and confirmed by actual diversion events and enriched by multiple other data sources. The result for leadership is a singular source of truth on diversion warnings that can mitigate reputational risks and patient safety concerns.
