Computerized Patient Record System (vxCPRS) and Bar Code Medication Administration (vxBCMA)
vxCPRS has been adapted from the VA developed Computerized Patient Record System. This tool pulls data from many different vxVistA packages into one user-friendly Graphical User Interface system that puts patient data including vitals, allergies, medications, laboratory results, orders, and progress notes right at a provider's finger tips for fast and easy review.
vxBCMA or Bar Code Medication Administration system, was developed originally by the VA and has been adapted for use by DSS for vxVistA. This system greatly improves patient safety by requiring nursing staff administering drugs to scan both the patient wrist band and a bar coded medication label on a medication that has been processed by pharmacy for the selected patient.
