Omnicell eMAR can now integrate with care planning software, Nourish Care
Bringing digital care planning and medicine management together.
Managing and monitoring resident’s medication regimes effectively is vital. Such management can significantly impact the delivery and quality of care. Often, care planning and medication administration systems are managed completely separately. This arrangement can contribute to failings in support of residents’ care. Last year, a national report found 1 that care home residents did not receive the correct support with their medication in line with care plans. Various disparate systems for medication administration and care planning contribute to this problem.
Omnicell eMAR is the UK’s leading care home medication administration solution. Nourish Care is a leading electronic care plans software provider. These two names have come together to provide a new integration that's invaluable. This solution gives care staff greater visibility of a patient’s medication regime as part of their overall care plan.
This new integration means that Omnicell eMAR can now share data related to medication with the Nourish Care system. Processes are made simpler and more efficient for staff and safer for residents. Information can be used by staff to deliver better health outcomes for residents.
"The integration has provided easy access for all carers and indeed all the team to be able to review medication prescribed and administered. This is particularly helpful for managers who are not directly involved in medication rounds, but now thanks to the integration can easily find out the current status of medication. The integration has made it easier for non-medication staff to plan their care schedule for each shift, as they can see themselves when pain medication has been administered and will wait until it has taken effect before assisting."
