MediMap - An Australian first that delivers more personalised medication management
Published: 09 Nov 2017
The software is already used by 60 percent of care facilities in New Zealand and enables a more personalised approach to medication delivery. Rather than being required to deliver medication sequentially resident by resident based on the order of a paper-based file, the new system enables staff to personalise the timing of when any given resident receives his or her medication based on their individual needs.
Life Care Parkrose Village is proud to be the first aged care facility in Australia to use MediMap. TerryWhite Chemmart North Plympton pharmacist Paul Drury has been working closely with Parkrose and says that MediMap allows medical and health professionals to work together more efficiently.
The system enables Life Care staff, the resident’s General Practitioner and the chemist to interact instantly rather than waiting for traditional paper-based means. The benefits of MediMap were echoed by Life Care’s Clinical Information Manager Kim Bannon.
“After researching a broad range of available electronic medication systems, we found that MediMap was the best option to ensure an efficient and smooth integration with our internal systems and also enhanced communication between medical professionals,” Ms Bannon said.
“We are so excited to be the first organisation in Australia to implement the state-of-the-art system across our facilities,” adds Kim.
