PrepLog® provides a comprehensive solution for interfacing your HIS prescription software with the quality control of compounded medications to ensure safe and reliable drug preparations for patients. The integrated PrepLog® solution automatically receives the patient order information from your HIS system that includes the expected substances and concentrations. Once the medication is compounded manually or by robotics a measurement will result in verifying the correct substances and concentration based on the order received and print a label. The result information is then automatically sent back to the HIS patient record giving visibility to all clinicians that the infusion is the intended medications and concentrations prior to administration to the patient. PrepLog® offers an easy-to-use method for true validation of each chemotherapy dose that is sent to the oncology ward ensuring medication efficacy and reduction in medication errors.
