Sydney-based community pharmacy software vendor Z Software is merging with electronic medication management specialist Medi-Map.

The merger aims to provide advanced pharmacy dispensing and medication management solutions across a range of health services, including community pharmacy, hospitals, general practices and aged care facilities.

Z Software markets a dispensary, retail, back office and head office product suite that is used by about 1300 community pharmacies across Australia.

Medi-Map’s platform is used across New Zealand and Australia and is designed to give GPs, pharmacists and aged care facilities access to a shared interface for residents’ medications charts, which can be updated in real time and are accessible from any device.

Both companies will retain their brand names, their current offices and support teams in Australia and New Zealand, and all current staff will retain their positions.

Z Software CEO John Le said that by bringing together the strengths of the two companies, they can provide a more comprehensive and integrated set of solutions to independent and community pharmacies.

“We believe that our combined expertise will enable us to deliver even greater value to our customers and improve patient care by providing healthcare providers with the tools they need to streamline administrative processes and improve medication management,” Mr Le said in a statement.

The merger aims to improve services in medication management, an area of growing importance as healthcare providers seek to reduce medication errors and improve patient outcomes.

Medi-Map CEO Greg Garratt said medication management was critical to providing high-quality patient care.

“We can do great things together,” Mr Garratt said. “We”re confident that this partnership will create new opportunities for us to continue to innovate, expand our reach and provide our customers with a more comprehensive set of solutions that will help them improve medication management and patient outcomes.”
