How can drug management improve patient safety?

Drug management has become an integral part of need-based patient care. While the hospital pharmacy of the past focused mainly on stocking the hospital medicine cabinets, the range of services and responsibilities of today's hospital pharmacy has changed considerably.

In addition to the provision of drugs, the hospital pharmacy now fulfills various control, quality, information, and planning functions. The goal of all this is to administer the correct drug in the correct form and dosage to the correct patient at the correct time. Patient-specific packaging of coated tablets, capsules, or regular tablets in conjunction with electronic prescriptions make this possible. The closed loop medication process reduces errors in the administration process and adverse drug events.
