A unique feature that delighted the users most was Drug to Drug Interaction checking, Drug to Allergy Interaction checking. Since PARAS is ICD-9 and ICD-10 compatible, the hospitals found it was very easy to prescribe medication and fill in from pharmacy electronically. This eliminated the problem of difficulties in comprehending the doctor’s handwriting. Moreover, it helped in significant maintenance of daily pharmacy activities. Bill preparation time got reduced significantly, non-availability of medicines when required got completely eliminated as the inventory control was completely automated and reorder reminders happened automatically.
On the patient side, the benefit of pharmacy automation was about 60% savings in time required for discharge. PARAS adoption has made overall administration time reduce majorly and hospital administrators and senior doctors now do not have to spend non-value adding time post-patient hours pouring over records and documents.
