Sutter Tracy Pharmacy Department
We utilize advanced technology that enables our Pharmacy Department to deliver the very best pharmaceutical services to our patients. Utilizing the most current medication therapy concepts available, our pharmacists are able to streamline drug therapy based upon the individual needs of our patients. This includes monitoring for optimal drug selection and dosage as well as preventing drug allergies, drug interactions and potential food and drug interactions.
Sutter Tracy uses the high tech medication system, eMAP, to track drug orders and improve patient safety. eMAP’s computerized bar coding and database systems ensure that the right dose of the right medication is given to the right patient at the right time. It also alerts clinicians to possible allergies, look-alike or sound-alike drugs, and high-risk drugs. Less than 2 percent of U.S. hospitals currently use this advanced technology. Sutter Tracy has the highest bar coding scanning compliance of all the Sutter Health facilities using eMAP.
