The design of Webstercare’s computer-generated charting system for residential aged care facilities, RxMedChart, has received the highest accolades from some of the best design experts in the world.
Webstercare won the Good Design Award Best in Category in the competitive commercial service category at the 2016 Australian Good Design Awards.
Webstercare Managing Director Gerard Stevens AM says the award is recognition of his company’s expertise in design and innovation.
“RxMedChart is revolutionising medication management in aged care facilities for the benefit of medication prescribers, dispensers, facility staff administering medication and, most importantly, for residents taking the medication,” he says.
“The concept of RxMedChart was a good idea that was made great by the collective efforts of all involved, especially our design developers whose input helped to maximise the utility of RxMedChart and its ease of use for all involved in the medication cycle,” says Stevens.
The RxMedChart System is a computer-generated prescription that allows for medicines to be continually prescribed for up to four months.
It improves the quality of information available to all members of the health care team and has the potential to revolutionise the way medications are prescribed, dispensed and managed in residential aged care facilities, says Stevens.
The system was designed to improve medication safety and reduce the administrative burden associated with managing medication charts and prescriptions. It offers prescribers more time to focus on resident care and minimises the risk of error due to the potential for miscommunication.
