As one of America’s 100 most wired hospitals, Sentara provides advanced information technology to help you practice efficiently and effectively.
Sunrise Clinical Manager, our pharmacy information system for a number of years, uses logical rules written by Sentara pharmacists to screen for critical drug-related problems and alert you in real time. This provides a safety net to help you prevent or manage these problems in your patients. Sentara is a recognized national leader in clinical alerting systems.
eCare, our electronic medical record, is in the implementation process. Computerized prescriber order management revolutionizes pharmacy practice, as pharmacists no longer enter physician orders, but review them as part of monitoring each patient. Clinical alerts are used by the physician, nurse, and pharmacist in safe and effective drug therapy management. Clinical documentation is on line.
Barcoded medication administration in eCare provides another safety check to prevent errors in medication administration.
Our automated drug distribution system has eliminated unit dose cart fill.
Our intranet provides MicroMedex and other electronic drug information databases, literature searching capability, at the point of care.
Pharmacists utilize mobile wireless devices to stay connected anywhere within Sentara.
Isensix automatically monitors refrigerators to verify medication integrity.
