Using BCMA software to improve patient safety in Veterans Administration Medical Centers.

Abstract

Bar Code Medication Administration (BCMA) software, as developed by the Veterans Health Administration, is an innovative, automated system that uses wireless, point-of-care technology with an integrated bar code scanner. The system can dramatically reduce medication administration errors by letting clinicians verify a patient's identity and validate medications against active orders.
