WA Health HS8
Healthcare software company Modeus are delighted to have been selected as the successful partner for the Electronic Medication Registers and Compatible Remote Locking Devices tender issued by Health Support Services, the shared service provider for the WA health system, Government of Western Australia.
Modeus will roll out its HS8 Controlled Medication Register application, initially to King Edward Memorial Hospital in Perth, then across the WA health system which includes 80 hospitals and facilities across WA Health.
HS8 integrates with many hospital systems including iPharmacy, Patient Administration Systems (PAS) and Active Directory removing duplication and making workflows quicker and more accurate. The system allows hospitals to transition from manual paper-based controlled drug registers to an intelligent platform that greatly decreases the time spent on controlled drug record keeping. This allows Nurses and Pharmacists thousands more hours per year they can reinvest into patient care. HS8 has many safety features to prevent medication errors as well as industry leading closed loop governance and security to ensure the movement of controlled medications are tracked and accounted for.
Modeus CEO Carl Zufi said Modeus is thrilled to be partnering with WA Health to deliver a world class product to its hospital network. “Modeus initially presented HS8 to the WA Health Chief Pharmacists back in 2017 and since this time our company has been on a journey to continually improve the product with new integrations, new features and design enhancements. We are delighted that WA hospitals will be implementing a product that is truly the first of its kind anywhere in the world. I personally couldn’t be prouder of the Modeus team and would like to thank WA Health for putting its faith in our company. We acknowledge this as a fantastic opportunity for our company, and we can’t wait to get started.”
WA Health’s Michael Petrovski, Chief Pharmacist of King Edward Memorial Hospital and Project Manager said that he was impressed by HS8’s intuitive design, functional capabilities and the positive feedback from hospitals where the system is currently in use.
“WA Health are looking forward to partnering with Modeus to deliver HS8 to Western Australian Public Hospitals. Improving medication safety and governance throughout our hospital network has been at the forefront of our thinking to meet needs of a digital health system. We are confident Modeus will deliver a terrific solution, future-proofing best practice controlled medication management, giving Nurses and Pharmacists more time to put back into providing patient care.
