Jefferson Community Health Center implements IntelliDOT BMA

Jefferson Community Health Center, a 25-bed critical access hospital in Fairbury, Nebraska has implemented wireless solutions provider IntelliDOT's Bedside Medication Administration, IntelliDOT BMA.

According to the company, the IntelliDOT System integrates with Jefferson’s core McKesson Horizon pharmacy system. Orders entered into this McKesson system by Jefferson’s pharmacy staff are sent via HL7 to the IntelliDOT System and appear on the nurse’s IntelliDOT wireless handheld device.

When the nurse responds to the IntelliDOT System’s prompts at bedside and enters medication administration information and follow-up documentation, the data is then sent to the IntelliDOT eMAR, which Jefferson uses as its legal patient medication administration record.

The workflow and patient safety benefits of the IntelliDOT System are also helping nurses at Jefferson be more efficient at the bedside and confident that they are administering the right medication to the right patient, said IntelliDOT.

The IntelliDOT System is a wireless, workflow manager that connects caregivers with the information systems they need at the point-of-care. Designed by nurses for nurses, the IntelliDOT System enables clinicians to perform safety checks and safely administer and document medications at the bedside using a lightweight, handheld device.

Thomas Klopack, president and CEO of IntelliDOT, said: IntelliDOT BMA is extending patient safety from the pharmacy to the patient’s bedside at Jefferson Community Health Center. Jefferson is proof that small critical access hospitals can economically achieve the same patient safety benefits as larger hospitals with IntelliDOT’s affordable and easily integrated system.
