HOPE-PAQS Webinar: Medication safety system MedEye
23 June 2020 - 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CEST
On 23 June 2020, HOPE and PAQS ASBL (the Platform for Continuous Improvement of Quality of Care and Patient Safety) hosted the fourth webinar of the Quality & Safety network covering the Medication safety system MedEye.
MedEye is an innovative medication verification system that scans, detects and verifies medication before it is administered to patients, stopping medication errors from taking place. The system has already been tested and validated in several Dutch hospitals with outstanding results. Recently, MedEye has able to enhance its activities and improve its deployment on a large scale thanks to the funding from Horizon 2020-Fast tract Innovation programme.
The webinar presented the overall results of the MedEye project, focusing on specific results in long-term care and hospital care. Remco Wijngaarden from MINT gave a short introduction on the MedEye system and presented some of the results of MedEye implementation. This was followed by a presentation by Clare Tolley from the Faculty of Medical Sciences, Newcastle University, on the outcomes of a study performed in a hospital in Newcastle. Finally, Remco Wijngaarden presented the implementation of MedEye in a long-term facility in Belgium.
