Adoption of closed loop medicines administration into the NHS

August 08, 2019 / SAMRINA BHATTI

Closed loop medicines administration (CLMA) is the functionality that supports the cross checking of the correct patient, medicine and prescription using digital technologies. Specifically, checking should be used to confirm the patient identity against the medicine/dose due and the actual medicine that is selected for administration — appropriate decision support should be generated if there is a mismatch, whilst the administration should be recorded as given should the checks all match correctly
