Pharmacy OneSource, Inc., software-as-a-service provider to more than 1,300 hospitals in the United States, announced today that West Florida Hospital in Pensacola, FL, has adopted Sentri7 to give its staff a single point of access to lab results, medication records and patient demographics, data that previously resided in different systems.
Clinicians can write rules against the data to identify opportunities for intervention and optimize medication use. Sentri7 (sentri7.com) can help the hospital comply with national standards set by the government and hospital accreditation bodies. For example, West Florida Hospital uses Sentri7 to monitor patients on anticoagulants for the Joint Commission's National Patient Safety Goal 3.
"Sentri7 has decreased the amount of redundant monitoring performed by the pharmacist. This has enabled them to increase their focus on other nationally-endorsed safety initiatives," said Dr. Ernie Cyr, Pharmacy Clinical Coordinator at West Florida Hospital.
West Florida Hospital is also using Sentri7 for antibiotic stewardship, infectious diseases, core measures, high-risk drug interactions and IV-to-PO medication recommendations. The hospital is moving toward a decentralized pharmacy model later this year and expects to use Sentri7 for more clinical initiatives in the future.
"I like the ability to write reports on the fly. The number of variables that you can look at, the number of meds you can look at, it's unbelievable. The sky's the limit," Cyr said. "There's just so much you can do to improve quality, patient safety and improve outcomes, which is ultimately what every hospital should be trying to do - every pharmacist, every nurse, every physician. That's what Sentri7 allows you to do."
