Invatech Health - Transforming medicines management in care homes

Invatech Health worked with Beacon Digital to create an electronic system for managing medicines in care homes; and evaluated it in partnership with Cardiff University.

The system led to a reduction in medicines returned to pharmacies and a drop in overstocks at care homes, with an estimated potential saving across Wales of up to £4.6 million per year.

Judges said the system had “transformed” medicines management in care homes and had “real potential” for wider application.
