Omnicell Pick Verification -Central pharmacy barcode verification that is compatible with Omnicell.
I just want to tell you both how impressed I am with how the scanner has been received by both the pharmacists and technicians at Reading. They are always scanning; I find them training each other. I have received numerous comments like "this is great", "impressive" etc.
RxScan has partnered with Omnicell to provide pharmacists and technicians with the ability to perform pick verification during medication preparation. This unique partnership will allow Omnicell customers to use SafetyStock to perform barcode verification in the central pharmacy for restock orders that are being prepared for the cabinet. The new enhancement will compliment the ability to scan during restock, issue, and return at the ADC. RxScan's product has the ability to scan virtually any medication barcode being dispensed from the pharmacy. This enhancement will allow the pharmacy to perform a barcode check and verification on all doses leaving the pharmacy. The Omnicell-RxScan partnership helps customers comply with the proposed ASHP statement on barcode verification during inventory, preparation, and the dispensing of medications.
Pick Verification offers capabilities not found in the existing version of the competitor’s solution. The solution gives you the ability to scan one or more items associated with a given ADC restock pick (i.e., all 10 vials of heparin 10,000 units; thus insuring that all of the items pick are correct, not just a representative sample). The scanner will warn of product expiration, if the product has a RSS barcode containing lot and expiration information.
In order for the picking process to begin the technician generates the batch restock labels.
1. The technician will scan the 2D barcode on the Restock Item Pick Label and then scan the Item Barcode located on the unit-dose of the drug. The result will be a correct or error message depending on whether the item picked correctly matches the Item ID.
2. Once the individual ADC-specific baggies are labeled with the ADC-specific Restock Label, the technician will scan the 2D barcode on the Restock Label and the item barcode on the unit-dose packaging.
3. After the stock has been completed by the technician, the filled baggies would then have a final check by a second person (pharmacist or tech-check-tech technician),
During this process the all of the scans are captured for later use in QA reports.
