New Feature: HI & MyHR Functionality

Released 31 October 2017

The newest release of Dispense Works supports full functionality from the (HI) Healthcare Identifier service and extensive patient views in MyHR (My Health record) providing you with documentation such as:

  • Prescription and Dispense view
  • Discharge summary
  • Shared Health summary
  • Pathology reports
  • Diagnostic imaging

Once your prescription is complete Dispense Works will add that information to the Patients record automatically and directly from your Pharmacy.

Participating in your patient’s care has never been easier, once your pharmacy signs up to the MyHR service your eligible patient’s information flows into the rest of their records and loads automatically so it’s ready when you need it.

Software Overview

Dispense Works is an innovative, patient-centric dispensary solution utilising modern tools and technologies to deliver enhanced pharmaceutical care. It has full e-health capabilities including e-script scanning and My Health Record (MyHR) integration, implemented in a streamlined fashion to recognise modern dispensing environments.

Workflow improvements include assessing multiple scripts against a patient once, rather than one patient against each item being dispensed. A medication summary shows a snapshot of the patient’s current regimen allowing changes in brand, dose and form to be identified at a glance.

A full patient profile allows for the easy recording of external and OTC medicines to supplement local dispensing history, as well as medical conditions, allergies and adverse reactions, clinical interventions, vaccinations and observations. An extensive set of reference material is presented within Dispense Works, improving workflow by reducing the need to consult external sources of information e.g. Australian Medicines Handbook, LactMed, Medicines in Pregnancy.

Clinical decision support is provided by MIMS Integrated, comprising drug-drug, drug-condition, drug-allergy and therapeutic duplication warnings. An innovative multi-drug interaction system means that interactions between three (or more) drugs can be identified eg the “triple whammy”. Significantly, interactions can be checked for medicines dispensed in other pharmacies (via the MyHR) or OTC.

Dispense Works is touchscreen-optimised to allow for easy and quick navigation of clinical and reference information. Fingerprint authentication identifies staff members responsible for each stage of the dispensing process, with each prescription’s status tracked from patient to dispensary, to till and back to the patient again.

Seamless integration with POS Works means that accurate pricing and current stock on hand data is provided.
