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 can significantly impact the delivery and quality of care. Care planning and medication administration systems are often managed completely separately and this can contribute to failings in support of residents’ care. Last year a national report found1 that care home residents did not receive the correct support with their medication in line with care plans. It is likely a range of disparate systems for medication administration and care planning are contributing towards the problem.
Omnicell eMAR, the UK’s leading care home medication administration solution and Nourish Care, a leading electronic care planning provider have come together to provide a new integration that 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, making processes 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. "
