Pharmacy Order Workflow
The function of Galactica Rx is to streamline and automate the entire medication order management process, thus improving the accuracy and speed necessary to meet the patient’s needs. Galactica Rx is designed for the capture, routing, delivery, review, approving, printing, storage, has the ability to triage order types (i.e. new, admission, new order, refill, and/or discontinue), online retrieval of physician orders and represents a major breakthrough in the order management process.
Galactica Rx is designed to provide a valuable solution to the challenges that confront pharmacy and nursing today. Those challenges include medication errors caused by transcription errors, wasted time due to telephone calls between nursing and pharmacy to clarify orders, lengthy delays to get start or new physician orders approved, repeated efforts to successfully deliver physician orders via fax, tubes and/or couriers and pharmacist being tied to central pharmacy, staffing issues at satellite pharmacies and remote hospitals.
Galactica Rx is a web-based product that can operate off any Microsoft browser. It is completely integrated with your HIS. This means it can easily be installed in your hospital’s pharmacy without demanding any extensive resources from the IS department. There will be no building or maintaining of dictionaries, no deployment, etc. We also have a built in reporting tool that will allow you the capability to dynamically generate reports for different levels of management, and the ability to cut, dice, and drill down data interactively based on different business angles. This easy to use tool will allow you to get the information you need in minutes, and the pharmacy will no longer have to contact the IS department for reports.
The main benefits are reducing medication errors, decreasing turnaround time, eliminating lost orders, decreasing the number of calls between nursing and pharmacy, allowing centralized pharmacy coverage for remote hospitals and creating more time for Pharmacist’s to do clinical care.
