Better Meds is live in University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust

Since the end of June 2019, University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust is the first trust in the UK that has implemented our Better Meds, a closed-loop electronic prescribing and medication management solution.
The solution will help improve patient safety by reducing prescribing and administration errors that could result in adverse drug incidents. It will also improve communication between pharmacists, doctors and nurses, enable work prioritisation, enhance reporting and optimise existing workflows. 
A recent survey was taken by the Clinical staff on Shipley Ward - the first ward within the trust to use Better Meds - has shown that electronic drug charts are 100% preferred. This is also supported by statements from the clinical team on the same ward, such as “I never want to go back to paper,” or “I must say the ePMA is a lot better than the paper charts,” or “I can’t wait for them to be rolled out in all areas”.
This is a huge success also for us because the implementation has already shown that Better Meds is easy to use and also helps medical teams do their jobs. University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust will be followed soon by a GDE site, Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust, which is going live with Better Meds by the end of the summer.

About Better by Marand

Better by Marand is one of Europe's leading IT providers for healthcare solutions and professional services, and is collaborating with a variety of clients in order to achieve one goal – to prepare for a better future. This is a future that moves towards open platforms and away from siloed solutions; a future where clinical teams can work with any digital solution provider, without being tied to a particular vendor; a future where, storing data in an open, vendor-neutral format will incite vendors to innovate and create better solutions.

The core technology solution, the Better Platform, is well-aligned with this vision and is based on openEHR specifications. The Better Meds by Better product (a closed-loop medication management system) is built on top of the Better Platform and follows the same vision. Better by Marand is currently present on three continents and in 16 international markets, including the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Malta, Russia, Norway, Finland, Italy, Switzerland, and Slovenia.
