Northern Ireland Health and Social Care (HSC) has selected JAC Computer Services to deliver a pharmacy software solution across four hospital trusts.

The JAC medication management software will support a range of pharmaceutical actions, generate efficiencies in stock management and dispensing processes, provide information to implement risk management, and support the ongoing delivery and development of the medicines nanagement initiative and e-prescribing.

HSC Department of Health and Social Care chief pharmaceutical officer Norman Morrow said that the new system will help improve the efficiency and effectiveness of its pharmacy and medicines management services.

JAC Computer Services CEO Rob Tysall-Blay said, "Northern Ireland HSC were looking for a single system that could support all of their trusts and organisations, to enable truly joined-up medications management that follows patients along their pathways of care."
