Positive impacts of Guidance MS demonstrated in an independent study A study published in the Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy in July 2017 independently evaluated the impacts of Guidance MS across a network of New South Wales hospitals over a number of years. This study found that the implementation of Guidance MS as a centrally-deployed electronic tool on multisite AMS programs led to improved antimicrobial use and patient outcomes, and reduced drug costs and length of stay for key infections.
Guidance Community Forums Please join us at our upcoming webinar sessions, hosted by Kas and Kirsty, in August 2017, to talk about our work and future directions. Topics will include developing the NCAS & Guidance Community; meeting the NSQHS standard for AMS; acceptable KPIs for AMS; and the Guidance product roadmap. We value your feedback, so please come along to these interactive sessions.
Guidance – eMeds integration at Prince of Wales The Guidance – eMeds integration project at Prince of Wales was a significant development that enabled hospitals using the Cerner e-prescribe system to seamlessly access Guidance to obtain an approval to prescribe a restricted drug at the time of prescribing. Phase 2 of the project will enable the approval information to come back into Cerner e-prescribe. If your hospital is interested in implementing this solution or to scope requirements to integrate Guidance with your e-prescribing system, please contact us.
Guidance Post Prescription Review Tool We are looking for hospitals to pilot our new Post Prescription Review Tool (PPRT). If your hospital is interested, please contact us to organise a live demonstration of the tool or to discuss implementation options. The system will be going live at Epworth Healthcare at the end of July 2017.
Guidance AMS development After extensive user group discussions in NSW, VIC, TAS and QLD, we are drafting the functional specifications to develop the new version of Guidance. Soon, we will be looking for super users to help us rank the priorities and elaborate on functionality such as reporting and content management. If you are interested to be involved, please let us know.
