In Care Vision, EMAR is an all-rounder feature that helps staff ensure that all medication is administered reliably and effectively. Now, it’s no longer necessary to carry bulky MAR folders, look through messy MAR sheets, or worry about medication stock levels. From dosage information to medication management, EMAR takes care of all manual operations. Now, all MAR records are easily integrated with your preferred pharmacies, giving care homes greater flexibility. Plus, every medicine that appears in our system is NHS-certified.
One more thing that is highly important in our EMAR module is accessibility. We have a controlled authorisation process, which means that only designated staff members have access. So, our service users’ information is kept completely secure and confidential. This can help you gain insights by ensuring that essential data is securely available and quickly updated. With only a few clicks, you can improve efficiency and streamline all of your medications and dosage operations, including reminders, alerts, etc. Plus, our cloud-based system not only provides security, but it also offers huge digital storage for data and information.
An EMAR is also known as an Electronic Medical Administration Record. It is a digital, or electronic version of traditional paper charts detailing the medicines or therapies a care home resident needs to receive. A carer or nurse will typically complete the record after a medicine round or shift when they have dispensed tablets or medication to a resident, or oversee a medical therapy, dressing change or procedure. The EMAR records all information and organises it by resident so that their whole medical record can be brought up at the touch of a button. This helps streamline proceedings and avoid errors.
An MAR is also called a Medicine Administration record. It charts all medicines, tablets, therapies etc. that a resident or patient receives as part of their health care. This can include medication for long-term issue, as well; as temporary medicine for infections or short-term concerns. MARs are used to keep records of what has been given, as well as share information between those who need to know, including carers changing shifts, consultants and family members where relevant. An EMAR is an electronic version of the MAR, where everything is inputted into a digital system and stored safely for future retrieval.
EMAR is a crucial piece of software for any modern care home. Not only does it provide a secure, accurate record of all medications given, diagnoses and medical history, but it can help save time in terms of sharing this information. An EMAR also helps reduce or hopefully eliminate the potential for medication errors to occur, since all details are stored in one place and not on paper charts that can go missing or interpreted incorrectly. A care home can also have a wider view of a resident’s medical condition and how it is being managed under the home’s supervision.
Care facilities like care/nursing homes will benefit from the Electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR) system because it helps to decrease medication errors, streamline procedures, provide real-time information, generate reminders, ensure accountability and enable data analysis for better care.
EMAR provides staff with complete transparency into the medicine administration process within their care facility. This allows them to identify any problems that need to be fixed right away, like missing doses, medication errors and spotting inconsistencies in the inventory.
