LONDON, August 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The partner programme launches with over 19 Patient Medicine Record companies participating, with coverage across 30,000 pharmacies in Europe.
What is the Aegate Safe Medicine?
Aegate Safe Medicine represents a quality benchmark and standard for pharmacists scanning medicine tags for verification, integrity, security and reliability for patient safety.
The branded partner program highlights the quality standards it brings together with the multiple national Patient Medicine Record companies in the service of pharmacies and patients for medicine verification.
The partner program simplifies handling real-life occurrences which Aegate has already seen in seven years of operation, addressing questions like: 'What happens when the internet goes down?' or 'What if the patient does not want to take the dispensed medicine?' or 'How do I return a suspicious medicine through the supply chain?' The program creates the most experienced joint team in the industry focused in the service of patient safety, and to address the Falsified Medicine Directive being implemented through the delegated acts in all European Countries.
Who are Aegate?
Aegate are the European Leader in Medicine Verification services.
For over seven years Aegate has worked in close partnership with various national companies serving the complex needs of pharmacies in the delivery of a real-time medicine verification and has set the messaging standard for intercepting recalled, suspicious, expired and falsified medicines at point of dispensing before reaching the patient.
By integrating tightly with the local Patient Medicine Record company the Aegate service is able to deliver a verification for the pharmacist on a medicine tag in a time between 100 milliseconds and 250 milliseconds including the time of the network transfer.
The sheer speed of the verification process means there is no change to the speed of dispensing or working habits of the pharmacist or the person dispensing. They will only receive an alert if the system recognizes a category flag.
The standard Aegate icon messages of Expired Product, Recalled Product, Suspicious product and Product Already dispensed, are now an industry standard delivered across all the PMR platforms making the process of recognising suspicious products easier and standardised.
Furthermore, Aegate continuously monitors the performance of the verification process through its operation centre with over 250,000 transactions an hour and is able to intervene across any possible support issue.
