Themba Lethu Clinic is situated in Helen Joseph Hospital in Johannesburg, and deals with HIV, AIDS and TB patients. The clinic has started over 23 000 patients on the Anti-Retroviral programme. The staff at the clinic attend to more than 600 patients per day.
Right ePharmacy has built an integrated pharmacy and patient management system to streamline the clinic’s operations. The programme was implemented in 2012 to ensure patient and prescription data flowed seamlessly between different platforms and technology systems. The clinic is outfitted with an in-pharmacy automation solution which serves the four dispensing windows at the front of the pharmacy. In addition to this technology, the first PDU was tested at this site and still serves patients on chronic medication.
