Safe, compliant, fast medication labeling — anywhere medications are prepared

Approved medical device that improves the safety and accuracy of medication management, integrating worldwide recognized best practices and international standards. A complete solution to enhance patient care, DRUGLINQ uses barcode technology to read information from a drug container and electronically verify it against the hospital’s pharmacy-approved formulary database at the point of care.

Where DRUGLINQ is used

The system integrates with both manual and smart anesthesia drug carts (ADCs)* in the OR, enabling it to be conveniently situated as part of the anesthesia workflow. DRUGLINQ is also widely used in the ICU, for patient care on the floor and at the bedside, and in the pharmacy.

Improve patient safety

Problems associated with mislabelling and mishandling of medications continue to adversely affect hospitals and surgical facilities. Drug labelling requires time and vigilance, and is prone to human error. For example,

  • In the OR, anesthetists are met with competing demands, coupled with the challenge to handwrite the required drug information in a legible manner on a very small area.

  • DRUGLINQ uses barcode technology to read information from drug containers and empowers you to label any medication, anywhere in your facility, with a compliant label.

  • When a drug is scanned on DRUGLINQ, the clinician is immediately presented with visual confirmation of the drug and concentration in hand, providing an electronic “double-check”, a safeguard that ensures the medication selected is the intended medication. The system then automatically presents a TJC-compliant, easy-to-read and ready-to-apply label that meets ASA guidelines, eliminating the need for handwriting and ensuring safety, accuracy and compliancy.

Additional benefits
