Theriak Software Adopted at Central Pharmacy in Germany
Reykjavik, Iceland (ots/PRNewswire) - Theriak Medication Management, a software system from TM Software for use in healthcare operations, went into commission yesterday at a central hospital pharmacy in Bottrop, a city in the Rühr district in Germany. The pharmacy serves hospitals in the nearby cities of Oberhausen and Gelsenkirchen, which together have about five hundred in-patient beds. Spokesmen at the pharmacy say this will make it a leader within Europe as regards distribution, handling and use of drugs within the healthcare system. The adoption of the system is also expected to raise safety in the handling of medications and cut operating costs by about 15% per year in comparison with other hospital pharmacies.
High hopes are attached to the opening of the pharmacy: it was reported at the beginning of this year in the German media that about 20,000 patients die each year in Germany as a result of incorrect medication.
Jürgen van Gessel, director of the pharmacy in Bottrop, said it was the first of its type in Germany to adopt the Theriak Medication Management system. He expects it to be adopted in many other institutions in Germany in the future, as it raises hospital safety and avoids the danger of incorrect medication.
Those present at the formal inauguration of the system included the German Minister of Health and Social Affairs and local government and healthcare institution officials from Gelsenkirchen, Bottrop and Oberhausen. Two representatives of TM Software, the company CEO-President, Fridrik Sigurdsson, and Axel Omarsson, General Manager of TM Software in Europe, were also present at the opening of the pharmacy.
Theriak Medication Management is a specially-designed software solution for the healthcare sector, focussing on the distribution, handling and administration of medications in healthcare institutions. It is intended to raise safety levels in medication, improve operational efficiency in hospitals and pharmacies and ensure proper handling of data. TM Software has already begun installing the Theriak system in six medical institutions in Germany.
TM Software operates branches in 12 countries, serving over 1,500 customers all over the world. It employs about 400 people. It is a leader in software consultation and the development and operation of software, offering a varied range of solutions in collaboration with some of the world's most highly respected IT companies.
