A recent USP MedMARx report states that nearly 50% of reported medication errors in NICU and PICU are due to prescribing and transcribing. A recent study at the University of Maryland Medical Center suggests the technology of Accupedia can eliminate incomplete and inaccurate orders -- contributors to prescribing and transcribing errors.
Accupedia solves challenges of integrating standardized concentrations while adding additional safeguards to protect your patients. One-button optimization of complicated drip order sets minimizes fluids and maximizes dose based on preset algorithms developed by the University of Maryland. A comprehensive, clear order sheet is produced for each drip - including patient specific titration charts.
"We found that 40.5% of our handwritten rule-of-six orders were missing important elements such as the patient's weight, dose and rate, and 6.5% contained calculation errors. The computerized orders were error-free, complete and legible."
"Accupedia has provided a platform for us to standardize our drip
concentrations without a significant learning curve for our physicians."
"We had to come up with a better alternative for rule of six and
compliance with JCAHO. Accupedia has definitely helped us solve this
problem and it is easy to use."
