Pharmacy OneSource, Inc., software-as-a-service provider to more than 1,300 hospitals in the United States, announced today that Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, MD, has adopted VeriForm for compliance inspections.
VeriForm is a checklist management system that helps hospitals document and report on compliance and patient safety issues throughout a facility. It provides the ability to create multiple forms and document these inspections in one flexible, easy-to-use application.
"By streamlining the documentation of medication area inspections, VeriForm has allowed our pharmacy to be more efficient and consequently, more compliant," said Monica Reineke, Pharmacy Operations Coordinator for Peninsula Regional Medical Center. "We are able to quickly identify trends in medication safety and security, and give real-time feedback to area managers."
Managers can run real-time reports to easily see which forms have been completed and monitor trends in compliance by hospital area or criteria. VeriForm has fully-integrated email capabilities so completed forms can be emailed to nurse managers and others for approval, if needed.
VeriForm has eliminated paper completely from the checklist process and provides a robust reporting tool to complete the process.
"VeriForm has given us the resource we need to not only improve our compliance with inspections, but increase patient safety by assisting other departments involved in this process," said Reineke.
