Mayo Clinic in Florida utilizes an electronic medical record, computerized physician order entry, computerized outpatient prescription entry, clinical decision-support tools and a computer-based monitoring system to provide advanced pharmaceutical care. This system integrates data from pharmacy, laboratory, microbiology, and admissions and utilizes specific algorithms to alert pharmacists to potential situations where therapy, safety or costs can be positively impacted.
The electronic medical record provides an opportunity to:
- Review patient demographic, laboratory and microbiology data; medications; and drug levels during medication profile review, while on team rounds and during dispensing activities
- Identify patients whose medication therapy requires a pharmacist's daily review
- Identify and review treatments that are inconsistent with established medication rule-based algorithms
