Amerinet Inc., a leading national healthcare solutions organization, announces its strategic education partner, Inquisit, has joined with The Institute of Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) to bring Amerinet customers crucial information that can help save patient lives. ISMP is the nation´s only nonprofit, charitable organization dedicated entirely to medication error prevention and safe medication use.
“Inquisit is committed to furthering the growth and development of healthcare professionals through educational seminars, so it´s very rewarding to find a partner who shares a similar mission,” said Dee Morgillo, vice president, Inquisit. “With more than 35 years of experience in providing independent and unbiased recommendations for the safe use of medications, we´re excited to provide Amerinet customers with discounted pricing for ISMP´s unparalleled educational programs.”
ISMP´s effective error prevention strategies are based on up-to-the-minute information gained through analysis of reports to its voluntary National Medication Errors Reporting Program (ISMP MERP) as well as onsite visits to individual healthcare organizations. ISMP is a federally certified patient safety organization (PSO), providing legal protection and confidentiality for patient safety data and error reports received. The organization´s confidential consulting services for healthcare organizations proactively evaluate medication systems or analyze medication-related sentinel events. In addition, ISMP´s newsletters, webinars, and free online tools offer the entire healthcare community expert, unbiased advice on improving medication safety.
“If the entire healthcare continuum learns more about the potential causes of medication errors, we will be able to more effectively prevent future errors from happening and ensure safer medication use,” said Allen Vaida, PharmD, FASHP, executive vice president, ISMP. “Partnering with Inquisit will enable ISMP to reach more healthcare professionals and help them stay ahead of new trends in medication safety.”
