More Providers Using POC Med Admin

The number of providers in the medication administration barcoding at the point-of-contact (BPOC) market is on the uptick, according to Orem, Utah-based KLAS, which has been monitoring the market for four years.

KLAS found that though the number of healthcare providers using a live solution is increasing, the marketplace has experienced the addition of few new vendors and products in the last few years. Part of the slow market growth may be attributed to the lagging adoption of computerized physician order entry (CPOE), KLAS reasoned. Both BPOC and CPOE are pieces of the closed-loop medication administration process.

Vendor products included in the main body and early data of the report are Cerner Bridge MedPoint, Cerner CareMobile/CareAdmin, Epic EpicCare Inpatient MAR, GE Centricity Enterprise Medication Charting, McKesson Horizon Admin-Rx, Meditech BMV and Siemens Med Administration Check. More information about the report is available from KLAS.
