eMAR and eHR Support
eMAR and eHR systems add the ability to exchange health information electronically, helping you to provide higher quality and care for your patients while creating efficiency enhancements for your organization. RxCARE proudly supports an extensive list of eMAR and eHR systems that can interface directly with our Pharmacy Management System.
eMAR is a server-based electronic medication administration system designed for use in institutional pharmacies, assisted living, long-term care, and rehab facilities. The software automates the process of distributing, tracking, and re-ordering medications and treatments safely and efficiently for residential care facilities and pharmacies. RxCARE currently supports both ACCUflo and QuickMAR eMAR systems.
With eMAR better outcomes happen because caregivers and pharmacists stay on the same page to keep resident care and safety the essential priority.
Why should my facility use eMAR?
eMAR can produce a 50% to 75% reduction in staff labor hours associated with month-end record keeping and charting procedures. Most importantly, while staff members concentrate on resident care and safety, eMAR eliminates paper-based record keeping and enhances the security of medication inventories and staff identification procedures.
In residential care facilities, eMAR dramatically reduces time spent on medication distribution and the chance of medication-related errors. The system also automates record keeping and notifies nurses when it is time to reorder certain drugs, which streamlines the communication process with pharmacies. Bar code technology verifies current quantities and dosages of every medication. Also, a resident’s photo is associated with each medication pass pertaining to their doctor’s orders, which helps support consistency and accuracy in medication distribution.
eMAR also tracks remaining medication quantities and can automatically place refills when necessary. This automated procedure is a time-saving tool for both facilities and pharmacies. This system supports a paperless environment and no longer requires care facilities to manually fax re-orders to the institutional pharmacy.
Because all medication and treatment information is stored in a central database, eMAR will instantly generate routine information including Physician Order and Medical Administration Reports (MAR). This reporting system replaces manual data entry. The reporting mechanism also offers improved efficiency related to controlling expenses associated with ordering and refilling medications from pharmacies.

An electronic health record (eHR) is a digital version of a patient’s paper chart. eHR’s are real-time, patient-centered records that make information available instantly and securely to authorized users. While an eHR does contain the medical and treatment histories of patients, an eHR system is built to go beyond standard clinical data collected in a provider’s office and can be inclusive of a broader view of a patient’s care.
Advantages of Electronic Health Records
- Providing accurate, up-to-date, and complete information about patients at the point of care
- Enabling quick access to patient records for more coordinated, efficient care
- Securely sharing electronic information with patients and other clinicians
- Helping providers more effectively diagnose patients, reduce medical errors, and provide safer care
- Improving patient and provider interaction and communication, as well as health care convenience
- Enabling safer, more reliable prescribing
- Helping promote legible, complete documentation and accurate, streamlined coding and billing
- Enhancing privacy and security of patient data
- Helping providers improve productivity and work-life balance
- Enabling providers to improve efficiency and meet their business goals
- Reducing costs through decreased paperwork, improved safety, reduced duplication of testing, and improved health.
- Contain a patient’s medical history, diagnoses, medications, treatment plans, immunization dates, allergies, radiology images, and laboratory and test results
- Allow access to evidence-based tools that providers can use to make decisions about a patient’s care
- Automate and streamline provider workflow
One of the key features of an eHR is that health information can be created and managed by authorized providers in a digital format capable of being shared with other providers across more than one health care organization. eHR’s are built to share information with other health care providers and organizations – such as laboratories, specialists, medical imaging facilities, pharmacies, emergency facilities, and school and workplace clinics – so they contain information from all clinicians involved in a patient’s care.
Impact of eHR’s on Care
Our world has been radically transformed by digital technology – smartphones, tablets, and web-enabled devices have transformed our daily lives and the way we communicate. Medicine is an information-rich enterprise.
A greater and more seamless flow of information within a digital health care infrastructure, created by electronic health records (eHR’s), encompasses and leverages digital progress and can transform the way care is delivered and compensated.
