Numark is to launch a new dispensing error reporting service for its members.

Partnering with Pharmapod, the free of charge reporting system allows the pharmacy team to record medication related incidents and complete the route-cause analysis to identify contributing factors. The system is designed to work on either a tablet or desktop making it compatible with all types of pharmacy practice.

Numark says the Pharmapod solution is an intuitive and profession-specific platform designed to fit easily with the day-to-day operation of a busy pharmacy and support pharmacy teams in meeting the professional and legislative requirements when an incident has occurred.  The resource will enable Numark members to evidence compliance with all professional standards associated with incident management and recording during a GPhC or PSNI inspection.

The launch of the system in September this year will support Numark’s Medication Safety Officer Status and will enable it to collate and analyse incident data to identify key trends in error reporting. 

Numark says it will regularly update members of the trends identified to enable pharmacy teams to put effective steps in place to mitigate the risk of these errors occurring in their own pharmacy.
