MOCHA V1.0
• Medication Order Check Healthcare Application
– MOCHA v1.0
• Rolled out during the summer of 2011
• Delivers a valuable enhancement to medication order checks in
the Pharmacy and CPRS packages
• Utilization of a clinical drug database vendor, First Databank (fdb)
• Enhanced Therapeutic Classification (ETC) allows for multiple
classes per drug, thereby reducing the number of clinically inexact
or inappropriate warnings
VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
MOCHA V2.0
– MOCHA v2.0 (Dosing) Development
• Introduces dosage order check functionality which will reduce medication
errors, adverse events, and potential deaths
• Provides an extremely valuable tool to VA clinicians in CPRS, Inpatient
Pharmacy, and Outpatient Pharmacy
• Version 2.0 consists of a maximum single dose check derived from the
patient’s age, weight, and body surface area (BSA)
• Currently installed in six test site environments with a planned national
release of July 2012

Stated Benefits of PRE
• Increased Patient Safety
• Increased Efficiency of Prescription and Order
Processing
• Decreased Costs
• Increased Satisfaction
• Increased Regulatory Compliance
VETERANS HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
Goal for Assessment
• Office of Health Information (OHI) Product Effectiveness (PE)
Benefits Realization (BR) Assessment
• One key question
– Is VHA realizing the intended benefits from the PRE functionality, and
if not, what can be done to make needed improvements?
