TruMed Systems and Medent have announced the bidirectional integration between the AccuVax Vaccine Management System and Medent’s EHR system for healthcare professionals.

Medent’s EHR is an all-in-one system, which combines its EMR / EHR, patient portal and practice management software.

AccuVax is a vaccine storage and management system that automates vaccine control and integrity. It reduces the risks of incorrect vaccine delivery.

Integration should eliminate common vaccination errors, enhance patient safety and save staff time.

Medent Sales and Marketing vice-president Barbara Cuthbert said: “AccuVax offers the emerging standard in vaccine storage and management for any immunisation provider.

“No other vaccine system can provide an all-in-one solution that guarantees vaccine integrity, frees staff time, eliminates vaccine waste and maximises patient safety. Combining AccuVax with MEDENT is the best solution that provides robust functionality and seamless interoperability that enhances our full offering to our customers.”

Integration with AccuVax will allow Medent to automatically transmit immunisation orders to the AccuVax system, maximising patient safety by ensuring the correct dose dispenses.

Furthermore, AccuVax will transmit the administered vaccine lot and expiration back to the patient chart in Medent to help the precise and timely billing and saving of staff time transcribing information.

TruMed Systems CEO Jesper Jensen said: “The goals of both MEDENT and AccuVax are to help our customers create value and allow more time for patient care.

“We are proud to integrate with such a customer centred organisation to expand on our workflow efficiencies and reduce charting requirements and greatly enhance patient safety by eliminating errors for all MEDENT customers around the country.”
