Expanding the Use of Barcode Medication Administration: Making a Difference in the Emergency Department (ED) and Other Outpatient Settings

 
 
Program Overview:

In a 2013 poll of over 400 health system pharmacists, barcode medication administration has been adopted by close to 80% of surveyed hospitals, with the rate rising steadily each year since the metric was first collected. As a means to assist the bedside practitioner in medication administration accuracy, ever increasing numbers of inpatients have benefited from "good catches" with bedside barcode technology. Although meaningful use incentives will continue to support the integration of this technology have not been as quickly adopted in many associated outpatient clinical locations, such as the emergency department, oncology clinics, and dialysis locations, where a large number of high-alert medications are administered. Adult and pediatric patients receiving care in outpatient settings remain vulnerable to adverse events when barcode medication administration is not fully supported.

ISMP invites you to join our distinguished faculty to gain an inside look at the implementation of bedside bar-code scanning in clinical areas once thought to be "off limits" for this type of technology. Learn the approach taken by our guests when "bringing up" high volume, high-risk areas such as the emergency department, outpatient oncology clinics, and dialysis center. Unique challenges and barriers to these settings will be discussed as well as changes required to address workflow and information management in the quest for barcode optimization at the bedside.


Intended Audience:
Interdisciplinary teams are encouraged to attend together:
  • Hospital and Health System Leadership
  • Quality and Risk Management Leaders
  • Physician, Pharmacy, and Nursing Leaders
  • Patient and Medication Safety Officers
  • Outpatient Frontline Practitioners; ED Staff
  • Ambulatory Clinical Leadership and Frontline Staff
  • Clinical IT Staff
Objectives:
Following completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Describe the steps taken to implement barcode medication administration in the ED, outpatient oncology clinic, and dialysis center
  • Identify the barriers to barcode medication administration implementation in various outpatient settings
  • Note ongoing challenges with unique workflow in various outpatient settings
  • Discuss the role of pharmacy support in the optimization of this technology beyond inpatient care
