Medication management program makes facilities respond quickly to residents’ needs

Keeping abreast of smarter methods and helpful technology is important to providing residents the best possible care. When a resident is in need of vital medications after-hours or on weekends, a facility must have the ability to be as responsive as possible to ensure the resident’s wellbeing. Turenne PharMedCo provides the agility that is important to providers and works to ensure our services and solutions are customizable to their needs. To help facilities successfully meet the challenge of providing emergency and/or first dose medications, we offer the ReadyMeds STAT Pack program. This closed loop automated dispensing solution combines cloud-based tchnology to give facilities the agility they need in crucial moments.

This program expands emergency/first dose medication availability and helps facilities safely manage medication inventory and dispensing, while increasing security and tracking usage. This advanced system also reduces errors, deters diversion, saves time, and lowers costs for the facilities and their residents.

For more than 25 years, Turenne PharMedCo has been a leader in the long-term healthcare industry committed to serving others with advanced solutions. We were one of the first pharmacies in the state to be approved by the Alabama Board of Pharmacy to provide automated dispensing technology to long-term care facilities. Our more efficient system electronically connects facilities to our pharmacy. ReadyMeds STAT Pack uses single dose packaging, automatically reorders needed medications and has notifications for expired drugs and discrepancies.

It is the most efficient way to provide first dose/emergency medication needs. Through the secure exchange of medication cart containers called “cubies,” Ready Meds STAT Pack allows facilities to immediately provide treatment since the orders are generated automatically. Once the medications reach minimum quantities, an order is created at the pharmacy. In addition to saving time, ReadyMeds STAT Pack creates more accountability with blind counts and fingerprint access which promotes better nursing practices. Inventory management also improves greatly with this solution due to the reports the system generates. The reports are the perfect way to keep track of who has logged in to the system, what they retrieved and when they got it out of the machine.

This type of innovative technology is a must when we actually think about the importance of medication management in resident-centric care. In 2014, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General, one in three residents were harmed by an adverse drug event or experienced temporary harm within the first 35 days of being in skilled nursing care. The ReadyMeds STAT Pack program is a significant support for safety and faster processes so facilities can focus on providing care rather than waiting on medications.
