Pharmacolog i Uppsala AB (publ) announces that the company’s product PrepLog™, used for compounding quality control at hospital pharmacies, has been fully integrated with Chimio®, the leading chemotherapy management system in France.
Chimio® by Computer Engineering is the leading solution for hospital chemotherapy management in France. From prescription to administration, the Chimio® application ensures full traceability at every stage of the oncology care process. With the introduction of Chimio® version 6.0, in late March 2023, it was made possible to integrate PrepLog™ by Pharmacolog for quality control of compounded chemotherapy preparations at hospital pharmacies. Measurement requests for quality control of preparations are sent directly from Chimio® to PrepLog™ for verification. The results are automatically sent back, confirming whether the correct concentration of the right drug has been prepared according to the prescription. Healthcare professionals are consequently offered workflow support to ensure consistency in pharmaceutical preparation and reduce the risk of medication errors.
At L’Hôpital Privé du Confluent in Nantes, France, quality control has been used for several years and the integrated solution has successfully been used for a few months. They confirm the benefits of a fully automated workflow.
Pierre-Yves Renard, Pharmacist at L’Hôpital Privé du Confluent, comments: “Since we are compounding potent chemotherapy preparations, we need to be equipped with the appropriate methods, controls, and expertise to ensure the safety of our employees and the integrity of the pharmaceuticals administered to patients. The integration of our existing prescription system Chimio® with our PrepLog™ device has made a huge difference. By eliminating manual steps with an automated workflow, we save time and have full traceability of the preparations.”
Didier Dubois, Area Business Manager at Pharmacolog SARL France, comments: “I am pleased to be able to offer full integration of PrepLog™ with the market leading medication management system in France. This adds great value for hospital pharmacies and we expect it to lead to both improved medication safety and increased sales.”
