Our Medication Management solution reduces risk and improves efficiency throughout the entire medication process. From the doctor prescribing, through clinical pharmacy review to medication administration by nurses, our solutions ensure you prevent unnecessary patient suffering due to adverse drug events while enabling more efficient delivery of care as well as significant cost savings.
Our clinician-designed interface allows your staff to access real time information whether they are at the bedside or at a remote location. Our solutions are underpinned by a sophisticated decision support engine that allows you to implement your clinical business rules as an integral component of the medication management process.
Our inbuilt Reference Viewer provides you with the ability to integrate data from multiple data sources including:
- Generic drug monographs and class information provided by the Australian Medicines Handbook
- Brand prescribing information sourced from MIMS, including consumer medicine information
- Best practice guidelines sourced from the Therapeutic Guidelines
- The Melbourne Royal Children’s Hospital Paediatric Pharmacopeia
- Locally developed guidelines
Our solution features clinical decision support and a rules engine to provide multiple decision support functions including:-
- Drug to allergy and intolerance warnings
- Drug to drug interactions
- Therapeutic duplication
- Pregnancy warnings
- Wrong dose - high, low and cumulative
- Abnormal organ function requiring changes to dosage
- Changing serum drug levels
- Late or missed medications
- Disease specific protocols
- Restricted formulary lists
- Locally defined clinical and business rules
Offline Chart Backup Facility
Our Offline Chart Backup Facility ensures that your information is available at all times, even during a system outage. A real time duplication of a patient’s most recent medication chart is always maintained on a designated computer in the system. In the case of a system failure, you have the ability to print charts and continue medication management manually until system access is re-established.
The Report Generator is a sophisticated data filter that creates data audits and reports based on accumulated patient medication data.
Our web based architecture means there is no requirement for any of the application software to be installed on your users’ computers. Our software is run from a central server and is accessed using Internet Explorer. This makes it:-
- Easy to install
- Simple to deploy
- Straightforward to maintain
- Capable of running in installations ranging from small clinics, through regional or state based health institutions to a full national shared electronic health record system
We run MedChart across five geographically isolated hospitals from a single implementation. The furthest hospital is around 1,500 kilometers away from the data centre. MedChart has improved medication management across those hospitals which in turn has improved patient outcomes.

Installing MedChart is not the easiest thing I have ever done, but it is one of the best things I have ever done. It fitted into our existing IT infrastructure, and is now deployed across the whole hospital, delivering real, measurable benefits.
CIO, St Vincent's and Mater Health Sydney
We have just opened a brand new hospital with MedChart used for medication management from day one. Even with all the new systems that everyone has had to learn, MedChart's deployment has been straightforward and it has been well accepted by users. The onsite support of the MedChart team has been instrumental in ensuring the implementation has been essentially trouble free.
