EPMA Worklist Manager_cropped

Electronic Prescribing & Medicines Administration [EPMA] has been implemented in the Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and is utilised across Inpatient and Outpatient locations.

It is proven to improve patient safety by reducing the possibility of prescribing errors due to various causes including poor handwriting or ambiguous nomenclature.

The pharmacy department is fully supportive of maintaining the system and further project developments to reduce error, improve efficiencies and ensure completeness of information to those that require it.
