Our Pharmacy Department strives to reach one simple goal—to be acknowledged as a leading pharmaceutical service provider for our patients and the communities we serve. The pharmacy staff at North Kansas City Hospital collaborates daily to ensure safe, accurate and cost-effective medication use. And even though they focus on providing compassionate and respectful patient experiences, they also make sure that their coworkers are shown the same respect that is extended to our customers.
North Kansas City Hospital believes that our pharmacy professionals should be leaders when it comes to educating internal and external customers about the safe and effective use of medications. In addition to filling medication orders, the pharmacy team monitors drug therapy, screens for drug interactions and adjust dosages according to patient statuses and disease states. They do all this aided by the latest pharmaceutical technology available.
Some of the technology used in our Pharmacy includes:
- Cerner Solutions for physician order entry, bedside barcode-enabled medication administration, electronic medication administration recording and quality outcome disease state management
- The Swisslog PillPick System that barcodes packages and stores and dispenses unit dose medications
- The Pyxis MedStation system from CareFusion, a leading automated dispensing system supporting decentralized medication management
- DoseEdge, a system that automates routing, preparing, inspecting, tracking and reporting on IV and oral liquid doses
It’s evident that we support our pharmacists and technicians by supplying the technology they need to do their jobs accurately and efficiently. We also support them by providing training and development programs that reinforce patient safety and strengthen their decision-making skills.
Be part of a Pharmacy Department that allows you to truly make a difference in the lives of every patient that you encounter.
