Where Implemented

JAC has a user base of more than 50% of UK acute NHS trusts representing 200+ hospitals as well as systems installed in Ireland and South Africa. In 1999 JAC was awarded a contract for the first dispensing and inventory management system at Red Cross Children’s Hospital, Groote Schuur Hospital and Tygerberg Hospital. In 2007 JAC was awarded a tender to implement their systems in various public hospitals across the entire Western Province.

Contribution to eHealth in SA

JAC system is deployed at 30+ hospital sites in the Western Cape and is due to be deployed to the provinces major clinics. The system is South Africa’s first regional-scale deployment of an interconnected hospital pharmacy system and is one of the largest systems of its kind in the world. The system unites healthcare service delivery and manages the hospital’s stocks and services electronically. JAC systems are also able to interface with the PAS system, so pharmacists benefit significantly by the availability of patient demographic information; saving them time and eliminating the need to capture the same information in multiple systems.
