Mount Carmel is first health system in Ohio to install Bridge Medical patient safety software

Ohio's first healthcare organization to contract for patient safety technology from Bridge Medical, Mount Carmela three-hospital health system based in Columbuswill implement Bridge's MedPoint and InfoPoint software systems later this summer.

"MedPoint will give our clinicians a robust patient safety solution," said Mount Carmel SVP/CIO Cynthia L. Sheets. "It also integrates well with current technologies and strategies."

A barcode-enabled point-of-care (BPOC) software system, MedPoint helps hospitals reduce medication administration and blood transfusion verification errors. InfoPoint, a complementary software system, helps hospitals achieve better clinical and financial medication-use outcomes.

Mount Carmel will integrate MedPoint with existing admissions, billing, pharmacy, laboratory, clinical documentation and physician access systems. This will give nurses and other caregivers pertinent medication and other information at the patient bedside, empowering them to make more accurate and timely decisions. Using a bedside barcode scanner, the nurse will initiate an electronic check for the patient, including allergies, medications prescribed and dosages. The computer will alert the nurse to medications that are more prone to error because the name looks or sounds like another medication.

"Once MedPoint is fully deployed," said Sheets, "we can begin collecting valuable prospective and retrospective patient and medication-use data. InfoPoint allows us to analyze this data and extract important information for use in patient care. Experts have found that 'the best-managed hospitals make extensive use of technology.' Our new partnership with Bridge illustrates this perfectly."
