Pharmapod Safety Institute

The Pharmapod Safety Institute provides Pharmacies and Pharmacy staff with innovative, expert guidance on improving policies and systems related to medication safety in a safe and legally-protected environment.

PSO members receive data driven reports and are encouraged to engage in other patient safety and quality initiatives designed to improve medication safety such as process evaluation and improvement, RCAs and safe tables.

Pharmapod Safety Institute's Mission & Values

Our vision and mission are to improve patient safety and the quality of healthcare delivery by pharmacies.  Pharmpod Patient Safety Institute aggregates and analyzes data and information (referred to as Patient Safety Work Product or PSWP) and provides valuable feedback that enables members to learn in the most efficient manner possible.

The initiatives of the Pharmapod Safety Institute will provide our PSO’s members with knowledge and methods for improvement and a feedback system to allow them to evaluate their own quality of patient care.

Engage with Patient Safety & Clinical Experts

The Pharmapod Safety Institute offers the opportunity to engage with various Patient Safety & Clinical Experts.

Pharmapod Safety Institute’s patient safety and clinical experts will work with member organizations in the collection, management, and analyses of PSWP and provide feedback on the following topics and other related members such as:

  • Reducing interruptions leads to reducing errors
  • Reporting errors as a learning opportunity
  • Just culture
  • SALADs (Sound Alike Look Alike Drugs)
  • High risk drugs – Opioids
  • High risk drugs – Anticoagulants
  • High risk drugs – Insulin
  • Decimal point mistakes

Direct feedback to members in relation to trends from analysis of the anonymized aggregated data include notable findings as to:

  • The Most Common Drugs involved in Quality Related Events
  • The Stages in the Dispensing Process where most Quality Related Events are reported e.g. product selection, data entry, delivery etc
  • Most common causes for events e.g. too busy, interruptions, information deficit etc.
  • Contributory factors that led to quality related events, lack of training, communication issues etc.

This information is also compiled across the PSO to encourage shared learning amongst member organizations.  Our experts will assist in the development and dissemination of shared learnings such as recommendations, protocols, or other information regarding best practices to minimize patient risk effectively in a culture of safety.

Uncover insights with the Pharmapod system

Because our platform is built by pharmacy professionals for healthcare professionals, Pharmapod is the leading cloud-based software for driving efficiencies and measures and reducing Patient Safety Incidents (PSIs) in community pharmacies, long term care, and hospitals.

It is the first platform of its kind to pool and share patient safety data across borders, monitoring trends and causes behind medication errors, and empowering healthcare professionals locally to improve their practice.

Pharmapod is a professionally led solution; developed and led by pharmacists, we believe in the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach and the Pharmapod system has evolved to also meet the needs of other healthcare professionals such as physicians and nurses.
