Ramsay moves to HS8 medication management platform

Australian healthcare software company Modeus has commenced implementation of the HS8 electronic controlled drug register across 36 Ramsay Health Care hospital sites nationally, with the project set for completion by the end of 2020.

The HS8 platform is specifically designed for hospitals, enabling paperless controlled drug administration in all areas of a hospital including pharmacies, wards and theatres, whilst enhancing operational efficiencies through integrations with existing hospital software systems. The system is also designed to improve medication governance and compliance via intelligent functions that help to reduce diversion and increase transparency with respect to controlled drugs.

Ramsay Pharmacy Operations General Manager Michelle Lynch said, “Modeus has a longstanding relationship with Ramsay, being the providers of DDBook controlled drug register software to our community pharmacy franchise network for many years. When they approached us with a custom-built controlled drug register for our hospital dispensaries, we were naturally interested.

“Ramsay has always placed great importance on ensuring the safety and security of medications, especially with pharmacists being custodians of medication. Modeus’s HS8 programs provide functionality to further enhance medication governance and a safety and quality focus.”

Modeus CEO Carl Zufi added, “Modeus are delighted to be able to extend our relationship with Ramsay to include the rollout of HS8 to their network of hospitals across Australia. We look forward to working closely with Ramsay in the weeks and months ahead to deliver what we believe is a groundbreaking product in the market that should be well utilised by their network.”
