What is the Safetrac™ Barcoding System?
Barcode technology is one of the most important components in safely tracking medications and verifying a patient’s five rights before administration: right patient, right drug, right dose, right route and right time. But some medications – such as unit-dose radiopharmaceuticals – are exempt from the FDA’s barcoding requirements, creating a potential gap in the tracking process and opening the door to patient dosing errors.
Until now. The Cardinal Health™ Safetrac™ Barcoding System is the industry’s first and only system that tracks radiopharmaceuticals from beginning to bedside, with no gaps in tracking.
How does the Safetrac™ Barcoding System work?
Every radiopharmaceutical dose is tracked when ordered, prepared, shipped, delivered and administered at the point of care by integrating with your nuclear medicine EHR system. Bacode technology verfies the patient’s five rights: right patient, right drug, right dose, right route, right time and reduces the number of crucial points for human error. Follow the dose from beginning to bedside.
