In April 2021, within the ON TIME project, an application system for prescribing and preparing cytostatic therapy – CATO® – was installed at the Zadar General Hospital.
The system enables the prescribing of an individual treatment plan for an individual patient with high accuracy of the drug dose prepared in the central preparation of cytostatics and enables more efficient treatment and monitoring of the treatment of our patients.
The system enables complete control and contributes to more effective implementation of the “5 rules” for the proper use of drugs:
- the right patient,
- the right medicine,
- the right dose,
- right time,
- right way
By May 2022, more than 300 patients will benefit from this system.
With the implementation of the system, Zadar General Hospital has joined all major oncology centers in Western Europe.
The project activities are co-financed by the ERDF and IPA II funds of the Programme.
The specific objective of the project is to improve the quality of services in the public health and social welfare sector in the cross-border area. Total project value: 813,445.71 EUR, whereas the co-financing rate is 85%.
