The Pharmacy at Ipswich Hospital uses a wide range of information technology

The Pharmacy operates stock control via the JAC computer system with expenditure in the region of £30 million per year through electronic ordering. JAC is used for dispensing of prescriptions, issuing of stock goods to wards, 'manufacturing' of products and reporting on drug usage.

We have an automated dispensing system supplied by BD Dispensing, with an automated filling unit. This is used for the dispensing of medication for prescriptions and for filling of stock ward boxes.

We have a web-based 24 hour temperature monitoring system (called RF500 – by Comark) installed within the Pharmacy.
