Establish a unified medication workflow from order to administration and take the guesswork out of finding medications.
But from the point of order to patient administration, there are 30 workflow steps that carry a 45% risk of error. Considering many healthcare systems process an average of 20,000 doses per day, the impact can be massive.

As medication moves across all these steps, there are process and information gaps that create unknowns and guesswork
With BD, analyze all medication data in one location and bring consistency to your pharmacists, nurses, and patients
Limit the potential for costly errors, free staff to spend more time on patient-centric care, and reduce the number of systems and workflows to manage
With BD's complete medication management platform across your entire healthcare system, you’ll be able to manage all medications – from inventory to reconciliation – across the med use process.
When you’re able to streamline steps in the med process from the same platform, you drastically reduce complexity and process variations. That means, you’ll increase staff efficiency and productivity, while simultaneously reducing waste.
With BD, you can standardize and simplify your medication management process from preparation to documentation, reducing the risk for error and inefficiency.
BD Alaris and BD Pyxis interoperability with leading EMR systems provides added safety for your patients and confidence for your clinicians.
By using a single, streamlined platform for medication management, your IT department will have fewer systems, databases and users to manage and can push formulary, user accounts and system updates across all sites and facilities within your health system.
Standardization of medication management practices also makes it easy for staff to rotate to different facilities, creates more efficient workflows, and reduces medication waste.
With BD, you’ll help ensure that the right med is available when and where needed. You’ll also work to help improve infusion safety across the med use process, from initial compounding to administration at the patient’s bedside.
For patients, that means getting the right meds in a timely fashion—improving safety, satisfaction, and clinical outcomes.
See how we are reinventing med management by closing the gaps in the med use process through integrated technologies with support at every step.
With BD's enterprise-wide, integrated med management platform, you can integrate your existing technology and optimize your processes and data.
*Subject to internet connection, device variability, and selected settings.
With BD, you'll run a lean, secure and cost-efficient health system that is better positioned to achieve its financial, patient safety and satisfaction goals—today and as you grow.
With BD, you'll gain a holistic view of your processes with actionable data you can use to set proper par values, identify diversion risk areas, and assess the efficiency of your workflows and processes.
With BD's clinical and technical services, you’ll collaborate on a tailored roadmap and implementation plan designed to help you achieve your unique productivity, cost and safety goals.
With BD, you’ll have the knowledge, data and recommendations you need to streamline your medication environment and install a culture of continuous improvement.
