Ashtons Live View has transformed pharmacy reporting
A recent NHS study indicated 237 million prescribing errors occur every year – one mistake in every five prescriptions, which the study said caused an estimated 700 avoidable deaths annually.
The investigation highlighted the continuing need for better medicines management. A core part of maintaining best practice standards in medicines management is good quality and timely communication with the pharmacist, including the reports they provide.
Typically, a visiting pharmacist will report their findings verbally or in writing after their visit. With Ashtons Live View, everything is electronic and reported in real-time.
An industry-leading innovation
Live View was inspired by customer feedback and developed in-house as a better way to manage medication information and delivery improved patient care.
The system allows information from visiting specialist clinical pharmacists to be made immediately available online to other relevant hospice staff.
It also allows senior clinicians and managers to monitor medicines management in their hospice 24 hours a day from anywhere in the world and take appropriate action.
