West Virginia system eyes end to 'human error' with new pharmacy tool

Three of Mon Health System's four hospitals are implementing a software that uses barcoding and cameras to verify sterile compounding doses, the Morgantown, W.Va.-based system said Aug. 9.

The product, called PharmacyKeeper, is a pharmacy dispensing program for intravenous medications that automates workflow in sterile compounding. 

"PharmacyKeeper will leave no room for uncertainty or human error," Brandon Crowe, PharmD, pharmacy director for Mon Health Medical Center in Morgantown, said in a news release shared with Becker's. "The program ensures that each dose is accurately labeled and helps us identify potential hazards before they can occur."

The software will be used at its flagship hospital, Mon Health Medical Center in Morgantown, Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital in Weston, and Mon Health Preston Memorial Hospital in Kingwood.
