JAC EPMA completed by Great Ormond Street

27th October 2009

JAC's Electronic Prescribing and Medicines Administration system has been rolled out at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS trust.

The hospital is the first paediatric unit in the UK to implement the system. Christine Booth, senior pharmacist at Great Ormond Street, said: "The paper-based prescribing process has many points of weakness, which an electronic medication record can instantly address, such as illegible handwriting or missing patient/drug information, both of which can have serious consequences."
