KbPort has released Virtual MedsManager, a robust, fully functional application that allows for virtual medication stocking, dispensing and administration, offering all the functionality of KbPort MedsManager without the need for a physical cart or cabinet.

Educators and learners have the ability to store files and documents as well as create and review messages, recalls and stock discrepancies from any Windows 10 device. Virtual MedsManager even simulates drawer functionality and barcode scanning for a complete solution.

The software platform allows for the simulation of medication administration activities typically completed at a bedside cart or storage cabinet. The software offers instruction and exercises to instill best practices regarding medication administration. No medication or dispensing hardware is required for this fully-virtual solution.

Users typically include those who want to teach medication administration without access to simulated dispensing hardware such as SimCartRx and SimCabRx. Virtual MedsManager can be used to reinforce concepts while also providing learners with the ability to acclimate themselves with the software interface and features in advance. Learners can practice skills from their personal Windows computers to gain basic skills prior to scheduled labs, which can improve efficiency while reducing costs.

“Virtual MedsManager enables educators to prepare learner activities in advance, thus saving valuable classroom and clinical time that can then be dedicated to other educational goals. Furthermore, Virtual MedsManager empowers learners to practice medication administration and dispensation skills on their own devices allowing them to gain extensive skills, such as enhancing psychomotor competence and gaining increased self confidence for a smoother transition to practice,” said Education Consultant Wendy Grbach, MSN, RN, CLNC.
