Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 07, 2013
PointClickCare, provider of the leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) platform for the long-term and post-acute care industries, today announced at the American Health Care Association’s National Convention & Expo the immediate availability of a certified interface for bi-directional data exchange between the industry’s most widely used EHR platform and the nation’s largest institutional pharmacy provider, Omnicare Pharmacy Services. Since the initial pilot release of the interface in 2012, over 300 facilities are leveraging the PointClickCare Integrated Medication Management solution to provide seamless integration between the electronic order entry and eMAR systems and their Omnicare pharmacy.
Through the electronic exchange of information, organizations reduce the risk of medication errors and adverse drug events, while saving time by eliminating the arduous month end medication reconciliation process. Eliminating costs associated with maintaining paper MARs/TARs, binders, and faxes enable clinical staff to spend more time where it is needed most - caring for residents and their families.
“Integrated Medication Management takes the complexity out of administering complex medication regimes,” comments Dave Wessinger, Chief Technology Officer with PointClickCare. “We are proud to bring this solution to customers that have selected Omnicare as their pharmacy services provider of choice.”
The electronic exchange of medication information and pharmacy orders between PointClickCare's EHR platform and Omnicare's pharmacy systems will allow for real-time documentation and fulfillment of orders resulting in efficiencies that positively impact all stakeholders across the continuum of care. PointClickCare’s Computerized Order Entry and eMAR solutions support the integration to Omnicare dispensing systems through a bi-directional prescription data exchange.
PointClickCare will be demonstrating its Integrated Medication Management solution in Booth #1001 at the AHCA/NCAL national exhibition, October 7-8, 2013.
