New Medication Management Tools
Phone orders, inventory management and variable doses are all available for the very first time in AutumnCare 4.6.1.
With these new additions, Medicate now provides greater flexibility whilst maintaining stringent safety and control processes.
Add phone orders to resident profiles for 24-hour time blocks.
These must be renewed at the end of 24-hours in order to continue administration.
Phone orders must be double signed by two authorised staff at the organisation.
This eliminates the need to keep paper records to document the administration of a prescription not yet administered.
Ideal over long weekends where pharmacy access is unavailable.
Inventory Management allows you to view all medication quantities on hand at any point in time.
The tool also provides a one-stop shop for ordering new medications and 'checking in' new medications when they arrive.
This provides an accurate overview of stock on hand as well as a more efficient way of managing stock.
Medication can be 'checked out' when a resident goes to the hospital or on social leave.
Medicate now manages the input of variable dose medications.
Input BGL or INR readings.
This reading will display in the medication round alongside instructions for administration.
This replaces the need to record readings as a Critical Med Note making administration safer as well as being more efficient.
