Apperta, in partnership with CGI and Marand are pleased to announce OPENeP - an Open-Source medication management product developed by Marand, in collaboration with the NHS and supported by CGI’s expertise in the integration and implementation of health IT systems. 

OPENeP is a comprehensive, user-friendly and innovative medication management product built on the Think!EHR Platform, based on open standards (openEHR) and developed with a vision to completely replace time-consuming and error prone manual paper based prescribing and medication administration processes. OPENeP's extensive range of functionalities, integrated decision support and powerful integration options are designed to empower doctors, nurses and pharmacists to improve patient safety and deliver better and more personalised care. Furthermore, OPENeP significantly improves communication between doctors, nurses and pharmacists. It enables creative use of data, helps work prioritisation, provides reports to reflect-on and optimises established workflows.

OPENeP was developed in close collaboration with University Children’s Hospital Slovenia and localised for the UK in collaboration with the Code4Health Open EPMA Community, supported by NHS England. Apperta has ensured that the OPENeP enhancements have followed the NHS approved safety process, thus enabling Trusts to improve patient’s safety while transitioning to paperless medication management. 

“CGI are proud to be partnering with Apperta and Marand to bring OPENeP to the NHS in the UK. As a global SI with a deep understanding of the health industry, we're committed to delivering integrated solutions based on open standards to benefit both Patients and staff.” Michael Herron, Vice President of Integrated Health and Social Care at CGI.

“The partnership between CGI, Marand and Apperta will make a suite of medicines management applications available across the NHS, which are based on open standards,” continues Keith Farrar, Chair of the Apperta Foundation CIC Open ePMA subcommittee “The partnership ensures OPENeP can be delivered quickly and effectively to improve the safety and efficiency of the medicines use process.”
