BCMA in Dialsysis

Hi All,

We are exploring the use of BCMA to verify right patient and right med in Dialysis. We want to use technology (better risk reduction strategies) to safeguard this process (versus using manual process).

1. Is anyone using BCMA to confirm Right patient in this patient care area?
2. Is anyone using BCMA to confirm Right med (dialysis solution)?
3. Other tech/EHR involved safeguards?

If you are, we would be interested in discussing details - do you use MAR, flowsheet, other., etc.
