I work with computer programs such as Meditech in order to triage issues appropriately. This role involves several reports and excel spreadsheets to organize data monthly and maintain for evaluation that is time sensitive. In this role, I have also project managed a pyxis upgrade for our medication devices in 3 hospitals. I have 340B experience and continue to learn that daily. I finished the 340B university course. Daily tasks include triaging errors such as medication overrides, working through daily reports, updating order string in the EMR to match what has been added or removed from our pyxis device to make order entry more flexible for physicians. My projects include, making the software we have easier to use and learning all the shortcuts in the programs to make workflow easier and more time efficient. I educate the pharmacy staff and other hospital personnel on the reporting and how to use medication devices appropriately. I also work closely with bigger companies to address concerns and issues that our facility may run into.
