We used Dispense Prep and Check at my previous institution. We used it for premix bags, as a safety feature for ensuring the correct premix was pulled. I don't see anything wrong with this practice, or why it would not be compliant with USP 797.

Hi Teamleader 14 (would be nice to have real names! :-) )
I agree with Ashtocco that there is no problem with the documentation strategies you are using with EPIC. Whether it is premixed or compounded, the key is traceability to a specific batch/bag and patient when possible. The current USP 797 sadly has no explicit requirement for batch or single-dose preparation document. Download and read the proposed revisions to USP 797 since there are specific and explicit documentation requirements for single-dose and batch prepped CSPs. Having Master Formulation Records and Compounding Logs will be a requirement in the next revision of USP Chapter <797>. Hope this helps.
