PHARMACY REVIEW2Pharmacy Interview IntroductionThe Interview Results1.What type of technology (technologies) does your pharmacy utilize?The pharmacist within my hospital use Meditech. This is used hospital wide for all employees. 2.How does the technology you use enhance internal communications between pharmacists, technicians, physicians, advanced medical care providers, and nurses?Meditech allows nurses to send messages and orders to the pharmacy without picking up the phone. You are able to send “missing dose” orders for a medicationthat needs to come from pharmacy and may not be available in the pyxis. Physicians and nurses are able to send an order as “message to pharmacy”. This allows to pharmacy to stay updated with different kind of rate changes for drips such as heparin. The pharmacy can also send messages out to nurses and physicians about medication changes as well. This system helps keep up with all of the changes for a patient. Anything that is done through Meditech is saved within the patient’s chart. 3.Describe the process from the time an order is received by the pharmacy to the time the medication is dispensed?
