InSync unveils electronic medication administration record application for EHRs

Feb. 17, 2020

InSync Healthcare Solutions released Electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR), a new application integrated into the company’s cloud-based electronic health record (EHR) software to enable accurate, compliant medication administration across the care continuum.

Amid the nation’s opioid crisis and rise in other substance use disorders, behavioral health professionals and other providers are seeing greater numbers of patients who require medication assisted treatment (MAT)—a treatment modality that combines behavioral therapy and medications given at regular intervals—in addition to regular drug therapies. As the legal record of drugs administered to a patient is required, healthcare organizations rely on the eMAR as an important documentation tool for ensuring optimal care delivery and patient safety.

The InSync eMAR is equipped with technology that enables close collaboration between care partners across the healthcare continuum and helps providers maintain compliance with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ guidelines, which call for automatic tracking of medications from order to administration by using assistive technologies in conjunction with an eMAR.

It features include color-coded visual cues, so clinicians can see which medications are overdue and/or vital to care plans, as well as real-time alerts. These features help optimize drug administration processes, to ensure clinicians do not overlook important elements of medication management—all in the context of the patient record. Because the tool is accessed through the practice’s EHR, healthcare providers do not have to log into a separate function to monitor, track and record medication-related activities.

InSync has the announcement.
