DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Manager from Baxter Healthcare

The DoseEdge Pharmacy Workflow Manager from Baxter is an enterprise solution that interfaces with the hospital’s pharmacy information system to automate the process of routing, preparing, inspecting, tracking, and reporting on IV and oral liquid doses. The system enables remote verification, allowing pharmacists to verify compounded doses outside of the cleanroom or hospital facility, and to verify doses at sister facilities.

The DoseEdge system aims to help pharmacy increase safety from preparation to delivery by intercepting compounding errors before they reach the patient. In addition, it drives efficiency and optimization through automated label sorting and routing to the correct preparation area, and via remote verification of prepared doses. Pharmacists are enabled to redirect doses to use for other patients and track volume remaining for multi-dose vials, reducing waste and increasing savings. The system also assists with regulatory compliance by automating the documentation necessary to meet USP <797> and <800> standards.
