PILS is a critical application in terms of patient safety, medical advice (patient and clinical) and drug attribution. Pharmacists are able to access patient information and prevent the dangers from drug interactions….Recent upgrades have now allowed the pharmacist to access patient information from any dispensing point and ensure patient safety. This inclusion of patient data being accessible throughout the ADF is a first in Australia and maybe internationally.
Peter Borland, Deputy Director Material Management Systems
PILS is a very sophisticated tool, it is tailored to the needs of many different stakeholders and without PILS, we wouldn’t be able to do our work.
Frederic Assouad, Senior Pharmacist, Area Health Services - Victoria
PILS provides me…easy patient management, (with) everything I need in the one system..full history of patients from other locations available, whilst maintaining patient confidentiality. (I) can stock-take progressively and on the “fly” – no long unproductive shutdowns
