New partnership to improve controlled medication management

Healthcare software company Modeus has been selected as the successful partner for the Electronic Medication Registers and Compatible Remote Locking Devices tender issued by Health Support Services, the shared service provider for the WA health system, Government of Western Australia.

Modeus will roll out its HS8 Controlled Medication Register application, initially to King Edward Memorial Hospital in Perth, then across the WA health system, which includes 80 hospitals and facilities across WA Health.

HS8 integrates with many hospital systems including iPharmacy, Patient Administration Systems (PAS) and Active Directory removing duplication and making workflows quicker and more accurate. The system allows hospitals to transition from manual paper-based controlled drug registers to an intelligent platform that decreases the time spent on controlled drug record keeping.

Nurses and pharmacists can reinvest this time into patient care. HS8 has safety features to prevent medication errors as well as closed loop governance and security to ensure the movement of controlled medications are tracked and accounted for.

Modeus CEO Carl Zufi said the company is thrilled to be partnering with WA Health to deliver this product to its hospital network.

“Modeus initially presented HS8 to the WA Health Chief Pharmacists back in 2017 and since this time our company has been on a journey to continually improve the product with new integrations, new features and design enhancements,” he said.

WA Health’s Michael Petrovski, Chief Pharmacist of King Edward Memorial Hospital and Project Manager, said there had been positive feedback from hospitals where the system is currently in use.

“Improving medication safety and governance throughout our hospital network has been at the forefront of our thinking to meet the needs of a digital health system,” he added.
