Moving to the new pharmacy e-order solution was equally simple for staff. Houston Methodist Hospital and Ricoh provided instruction sheets at the MFPs, as well as informative emails. All totaled, pharmacists were up to speed in about one hour.
The transition to our EDE was seamless and the solution is now working behind the scenes, enabling Houston Methodist Hospital’s staff to make information work for them like never before. Pharmacists are able to retrieve patient information quickly and easily, and eliminate re-entry of patient admission information into their system.
Beyond delivering dashboard capabilities and reducing paper from the pharmacy’s workflow, the technology provided a nearly $500,000 cost advantage compared to upgrading its previous medication ordering management system.
