Mirrijini Dispense System

What is the Mirrijini Dispense System (MDS)?

MDS is a computer system in a kiosk,
developed as a means of recording:

  • What medication is being given out
  • Who is giving out the medication
  • Who is the medication going to
  • Who authorised the medication
  • What directions are to go on the label.

What previously was a laborious task, now takes seconds. The use of the system can reduce the amount of paperwork required and enables a variety of trained staff to dispense medications. This makes the system accessible and efficient.

The Mirrijini Dispense System has been developed over many years. It has received input from both remote and urban health care facility staff to get it where it is today. Staff at these health care facilities have reported improvements to their stock control system, time reductions of up to 80% when dispensing medications and increased reporting functionality, which prior to the system was virtually non-existent.

The Mirrijini Dispense System incorporates two major components:

1: Recording Medication Supplied

The Mirrijini Dispense System (MDS) is designed for use in the pharmacy room of an Aboriginal Health Service to assist in dispensing and inventory (stock) management. To save time and to simplify the dispense process MDS uses barcodes and a touch screen. As each medication prescribed has a unique manufacturer’s barcode, this barcode is used to identify the medication name and strength to ensure that the correct medication is picked every time. Once this medication is scanned, a step by step process is followed to record the patient, clinician, doctor, and dosage. After the information has been entered a label can be printed to identify the patient, medication and dosage. This label is applied to the medication being supplied. This process takes around 30 seconds to complete and records vital dispensing information.

MDS was developed as a means of recording:

  • What medication is being given out
  • Who is giving out the medication
  • Who is the medication going to
  • Who authorised the medication
  • What directions are to go on the label.

MDS also prints:

  • Labels incorporating all required information for applying to the medication supplied
  • Total Medicines used in a given period Report
  • Client Medication Profile Report
  • Medication Usage Report.

2: Stock Control System

The second component of the Mirrijini Dispense System is a stock control system. This stock control system provides a simple and efficient means of recording stock on hand. When orders are received the new stock is entered into MDS. This ensures all the medication stored in your pharmacy room is accounted for. Each time a medication is dispensed this stock total is reduced by the amount supplied, giving a snapshot of your stock levels at any one time.

Stock Control Reports:

By printing a report you can assess the current stock levels and compare this to the report of the total medicines used in a given period of time, to ensure optimal stock levels at all times.
