In addition to the solution for electronic prescribing and dispensing of medicines, Oxford will implement two other Improved solutions, the Better clinical portal and the allergy module.
The OPENeP software solution reduces the possibility of errors, as the decision support system checks for possible drug interactions, while at the same time improving cooperation between healthcare professionals, as all patient information is available to all participants in the treatment process. At the time of the new coronavirus epidemic, electronic prescribing also has the advantage of reducing the risk of infection.
OPENeP is a comprehensive electronic system already used in many hospitals in the UK, including the University Clinical Center in Plymouth, Taunton Hospital in Somerset, Wye Valley Hospitals in Hereford and Dartford, and the world’s oldest psychiatric institution SLAM.
With its solution, Better is also present in Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand, among others. In Slovenia, it was delivered at the Pediatric Clinic in Ljubljana, the Institute of Oncology and the Intensive Care Unit of the Infectious Diseases Clinic in Ljubljana.
The company is helping to transform healthcare with open data platforms and connected digital solutions that enable healthcare organizations to better manage data and work processes to improve patient care. Namely, their platforms enable the storage of health records at hospital, region or country level, and at the same time represent the foundation for developing easy-to-use digital applications that meet the needs of busy medical staff.
More than 22 million patient medical records or more than 1,500 hospitals in 15 countries are already stored securely on the platform.
Over three decades of technological innovation, Better has gained the trust of leading health centers, children’s and general hospitals, and other research and healthcare institutions worldwide, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, Italy, and the Netherlands and Finland.
