Pharmacy IV Workflow Management Systems
An IV workflow management system is usually implemented in a sterile compounding setting such as a hospital, to detect and correct errors using barcode technology to scan and verify all ingredients in a CSP during preparation and verification.
According to ISMP, manual verification of IV admixture ingredients is not effective in detecting and correcting errors. An IV workflow system is particularly useful when preparing high alert medications, pediatric medications, epidural and intrathecal meds and other NTI drugs.
Another advantage of a Pharmacy IV workflow management system is automation of processes associated with preparing, verifying, documenting and tracking CSP’s.
Here is an example video that demonstrates the process from BD Pyxis™.
