Deliver safer, smarter and more streamlined drug administration and accelerate your journey to digital maturity.

Icon - Patient Care

"Digitally mature trusts have been found to run at more than 10% higher efficiency than non-mature organisations" - NHS Digital.

While medication prescription and administration are frequent activities in hospital settings, they also can be
one of the most common causes of patient harm. 
The Sunrise KBMA solution delivers functionality to support the use of barcode technology, which positively identifies the patient and validates the medications at the point of drug administration, driving a fully closed-loop medication administration (CLMA) process. This contributes to reducing adverse drug events and administration errors by supporting staff members, giving them extra confidence and time when administering medications and validating the five rights of medication administration.

"Since introducing Sunrise KBMA, the trust has been able to reduce medication administration errors by 55%.”
- Carol Moss, EPR Manager, Liverpool Heart and Chest NHS Foundation Trust 

Sunrise KBMA helps:

Reduce adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and associated costs through enhanced adherence to the five rights for medication administration


Right patient, right medication, right route, right time and right dose.


Facilitate a fully closed-loop medication management (CLMM) system 


By enabling CLMA to be deployed alongside the pharmacy closed-loop medication supply interface, which increases efficiency and reduces the risk of transcription errors.


Accelerate the journey towards digital maturity and HIMSS Electronic Medical Record Adoption Model (EMRAM) accreditation


CLMM is a key requirement for HIMSS EMRAM certification that is a globally recognised standard of digital maturity linked to safety and efficiency.
