Use of barcode labeled clinicians, patients and medications for ensuring the 5 rights of
   medication administration
Automated dose and allergy checking.
Computer documentation of medication administration
User reports of occurrences, compliance and potential errors

    management decisions around model and determine if there are any unforeseen implications. Thus,
    creating buy-in for decisions, allowing for more rapid and effective implementations of barcoding throughout
    BSHSI.

   opinions and outside knowledge
•  BPOC vendor provided outstanding documentation, test plans and implementation
   methodologies

  BPOC Legacy

  “This system is used anytime a patient receives a medication, every
     nurse uses it and every patient that receives medication is exposed
     to it. The level of safety that the system provides far outreaches any
     endeavor we have taken on before. Patients are safer because of
     what we have done. Staff are more efficient and have better
     information available than anytime before.”




Lessons Learned

  BPOC vendor methodology was validated and proved successful
  The System Design team must be composed of a group of cross-functional clinical stakeholders
  Must have dedicated off-line people in project lead roles, at least for pharmacy lead and nurse
        informaticist
  Start predecessor work early before project kickoff
  Hours estimated by barcode vendors do not count predecessor activities
  Vendor provides an abundance of reports, that require analysis and work to identify root cause
        and resolution.
  Work-arounds must be identified early and stopped.
  Internal and external marketing are essential to project success




Lessons Learned (continued)

  The speed at which BCMA is rolled out throughout the facility is controlled by 2 overwhelming
         factors, training and devices
  The longer you take to roll out BCMA in the facility the longer you live in two worlds, digital and
         paper
  IT support must be 24/7 and timely
  Changes in nursing practice does not add time to the med admin process
  The biggest impact on Nursing and Pharmacy are the operational changes the application brings
           Procedural
           Staffing
           Physical space and layout
           Medication order Turn-around times
  It only takes 4-5 med passes to “get it”
  Beware of scope creep
  Pharmacy, Nursing and I.S. relationships were strengthened during the project.
