New from Triscribe in 2023
A roundup of new features to help your team save time and drive efficiencies, including a teaser for future projects
“We don’t necessarily need more science in tech, we need to make it accessible to everyone with better consumer engagement and better product.”
The summer break is fast approaching. Before we know it, it will be time for flu vaccines and the next round of winter pressure will be upon us. Triscribe can help your team manage those pressures. We use data you already have to save every user up to a week a year. And support your team as they drive efficiencies and improvements to medicines stewardship and safety.
So before the break, a quick roundup of some of the new analytics and AI we have introduced already in 2023. All designed to help make your life easier:
Revolutionise your ward rounds
Use Triscribe to make it easier and quicker to plan ward rounds. Pharmacists need to find the patients that need review for a variety of key medication policies and risks. Triscribe now makes this easy in lots of different ways:
Use Active Prescriptions to plan where to send pre-prepared doses of a combined drug like Piperacillin + Tazobactam at the start of each day.
Change the filters and use the same tool to create a list of adult patients who have been receiving intravenous antibiotics for over 48 hours. Support compliance with the IVOS CQUIN and improve patient care.
Then use the list to identify a sample of patients for audit review.
With the Monitoring feature, find patients that need review for key safety guidelines. Including oxygen prescribing, allergy reviews and VTE prophylaxis.
Manage ward performance
Medicines given by injection require more highly qualified nursing staff. Triscribe can tell you how many injections are due to be given on your ward on an hour by hour basis. This helps you manage your staffing for the day ahead.
On top of monitoring, we have created a new pharmacy dashboard. This gathers everything in one place. Monitoring, active prescriptions, medication safety indicators and drugs at risk of shortage. It gives a pharmacist a single view of the medication priorities for each patient on a ward.
Track KPIs and drive improvements
Our antibiotics charts also support compliance with the IVOS CQUIN. Breakdown the number and percentage of IV admins by route and by ward location. Identify improvements and learn from best practice.
Monitoring helps track compliance with key guidelines like oxygen prescribing. Identify possible CQC issues and take action ahead of time.
There is plenty more to come. In testing right now, charts analysing delayed administrations of insulins. And an early version of opioid desprescribing to support reducing patients below the 120mg threshold.
We would love to collaborate with your hospital on new projects. How could you use medication data you already have to learn and improve? Some areas under consideration:
Controlled drugs management and audit support
Medicines spend including analysis of high-cost drugs. Ensuring that they are being used for the indications approved and in the correct specialities.
Patient discharge summaries. Including medication history and links to better information about medicines for the patient.
What else is a priority for your hospital? We would be delighted to collaborate on the projects that really matter to you.

We would love to work with you. Triscribe can get you better data quickly and easily without messy systems changes or integrations, complex projects or any strain on hard pressed IT and Informatics resources. Remember, this is data you have already captured through countless hours of time and friction for frontline doctors and nurses.
As a bonus, you will make life easier for every member of your team that is a Triscribe user. That hour a week adds up to an extra week of time every year.
