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 proudly 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.
