Chaophraya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital is known for its first building which
was constructed in 1909 in Baroque architecture with stucco and currently
houses the "Thai Traditional Medicine Museum". Now it is the leading
traditional Thai medicine hospital of Prachinburi Province, Thailand and is
classified by the Ministry of Public Health as a regional hospital.
Medication security and workflow efficiency were crucial to the medication
delivery process in pharmacy. Chaophraya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital was using a
legacy medication management system even for the controlled substances. Nurses
who were responsible for organizing narcotics prepared prescribed medications
to use each day and kept them in the traditional medication carts with lock.
Compounding the inefficiency problem was the fact that errors occurring during
the process. The right medication storage solution to match the hospital’s
needs was a critical decision. The hospital was seeking a solution that would
offer security and ease of use combined with outstanding customer service.
After NuboMed’s partner demonstrated the Medication Management Cabinet’s
capabilities, the team opted to go ahead with the installation. Our team
provided step-by-step support and assistance during the installation period.
The hospital noted that the process was seamless and smooth, and the training
received was effective and efficient.
Safe and secure dispensing is paramount, and Medication Management Cabinet
is designed to reduce the risk the medication errors and provide secure storage
with proper safeguards. Available on different storage modules, are features
such as unit dose dispensing, light guidance technology, automatic counting
technology and near expiry, and low-stock alert. All medications are stores in
a controlled, locked, and traceable environment with visibility for the
pharmacy to control inventory via the intelligent closed-loop medication
management software system.
Controlled substances are secured with dual authentication for removal,
waste, return or override. Further, the software tracked all the activities to
protect against diversion and provide visibility and data analytics. Nurses and
pharmacy staff appreciate the automatic counting modules and the closed-loop
software system as they help drive efficiency into the workflow with inventory
visibility and intuitive user interface.
Medication dispensing can be done with a few simple steps, only 1/3 of the
time when compared with the traditional manual operation. The hospital has been
using NuboMed’s solution for more than six months, and are pleased with its
performance. “We appreciate very much the speed and stability of the
