HOPE-PAQS Webinar: Medication safety system MedEye
23 June - 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CEST
The next webinar scheduled on 23 June 2020 at 15.00 CET will describe the innovative medication verification suite MedEye.
Medication errors occur daily and are a major burden to society, often leading to adverse drug reactions, lengthened hospital stays, increased healthcare costs, and in the most severe cases, increased mortality.
MedEye is an innovative medication verification suite that scans, detects, and verifies medication at the bedside. It stops medication errors from taking place by verifying medication before it is administered to patients. MedEye provides nurses and healthcare workers a single place where they can verify all medications – oral solids, injections, compounded and repackaged medication. Administration details are then automatically stored in a patient’s medication administration record.
MedEye has already been tested and validated in several Dutch hospitals with excellent results. Thanks to the support of Horizon 2020 – Fast Track To Innovation Programme, activities are performed to enhance MedEye and facilitate its deployment on a large scale.
Two studies are performed to establish transnational performance and cost effectiveness. One for the hospital sector at the Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals Foundation Trust in partnership with Durham University. One for long-term care through central pharmacy Pharmaforce.
The objectives of the webinar are to:
- Present the overall results of the MedEye project
- Describe specific results of the work on Long Term Care
- Describe specific results of the survey on Hospital Care
