We have a potential customer for PTS that is looking to use it within their Aseptic section but would like to talk to another hospital using it in this way.

If you could let me know if your pharmacy uses it in aseptics please let me know and, if its ok with you, I'll pass your details on to them.

Many Thanks

We at Royal Derby are not, however we have had discussion to use in aseptics to track the delivery of controlled drug items to patient in community.
So to capture such data as checking, bag serial number, taxi book number, taxi driver ID.
Will keep you posted on this, should be decide to take forward.

Hi all, wanted to resurrect this thread and ask if anyone has successfully implemented the tracker into their aseptics department?

We are looking to roll it out and would be very interested in hearing from anyone who has.

Many thanks

Any more of you guys using PTS in aseptics? We've got another customer who wants to talk to a department using it like this but we still don't have that data.

Chris, did you guys ever get round to this?

We are just in the process of setting up and testing. We think we're getting somewhere, chemotherapy and multiple products per patient are the challenge.

We'd love to hear from others either using or attempting to implement.

How did you get on with multiple products please as I am at that stage now? Any advice would be very appreciated.

Hi Michelle,

We're still very much trialling at the moment but booking worksheets into the tracker as opposed to prescriptions like we do in the dispensaries, it's not a perfect solution but the best we can come up with. I'd be interested to hear how you're getting on though.

Has anyone got any updates on this subject please?

We're currently introducing it.
-As Chris is we are booking in worksheets on the day of production.
-Adding the drug it is as a note.
-Added a step for items that are on hold.

We are considering looking to use it as a scheduling system in aseptic services also, has anyone looked into this? We are currently having issues with clogging up the work list, items 'going red' and are looking for other ways to enter information other than as a note. Has anyone got any ideas?

We are using tracking in aseptics at the Royal Cornwall Hospital but do not work in that area so not sure what they are doing exactly. You are welcome to get in touch with me and I can find out what you need.

Hi all

I know this is very old thread.

Did anyone manage to implement the tracker system successfully in the aseptic department.

Many thanks

Hi all,

We have rolled out the new tracking system in our pharmacy and are looking at how we can use it in Aseptics. Did anyone successfully roll it out in their aseptic departments? How do you use it? Any information would be appreciated - thank you

Hi Abigail,

We've actually recently put together a quick guide on the wiki regarding the way we envision PTS being used in Aseptics:


Let me know if it's any good for you.

I'm interesting in seeing how PTS works in an aseptic unit but the link to the quick guide doesn't seem to be working for me. Can you help?

Hi Deborah,

That link will only work once you're logged in. If you try it again now I'm sure it should work for you, if not let me know!

Thanks Marc. It's working now. I will have a look at this. Thanks!
