“Managing medications to prevent patient harm and to reduce waste is an incredibly complex and challenging process for hospital clinicians,” said Joseph Kaupp, Co-founder and CEO of Bainbridge Health. “In pursuit of our mission to distill that complexity in order to improve safety and eliminate avoidable cost, it is crucial to partner with mission-aligned industry leaders to continually innovate and drive value. We are privileged to have such a partner in DoseMe and look forward to working together to reduce cost and - most importantly - improve the safety and quality of patient care.”
Bainbridge Health provides clinical solutions based on more than a decade of research and development, including the Med O.S® medication safety and stewardship platform that reduces the risk of medication errors and waste. The partnership will leverage Bainbridge Health’s Med O.S® platform to further enhance medication safety and reduce costs across DoseMe’s partner hospitals.
DoseMeRx is a precision dosing software that was developed specifically for clinical practice.
