Pharmacy OneSource, Inc., software-as-a-service provider to more than 1,300 hospitals in the United States, announced today at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Annual Conference several new improvements have been added to Sentri7, a web-based, enterprise-wide electronic surveillance, documentation and reporting application.
Infection prevention teams now have access to standard National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN) reporting forms for healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) within Sentri7. Relevant data automatically populates the form from the patient profile and the reports can be exported to facilitate entry into the NHSN database.
Rules can now be written against surgery schedules, allowing infection preventionists to see when prophylactic antibiotics have not been properly discontinued within 24 hours following surgery. This helps ensure compliance with Core Measures related to the Surgical Care Improvement Project (specifically SCIP 3).
Another new feature provides users with the ability to mark patients with positive cultures as part of the HAI investigation process as "reviewed." This saves time by avoiding the review of patients multiple times among multiple infection preventionists. This functionality allows clinicians to easily coordinate their workflows across multiple shifts.
Sentri7 by Pharmacy OneSource combines medication, laboratory, patient, radiology, and surgery data to facilitate earlier, better, and more consistent interventions. Accelerating workflows can lead to shorter lengths of stay, lower costs, improved patient safety and reduced antibiotic resistance. More information about Sentri7 can be found at sentri7.com/.
