App-based care management platform Nourish Care is incorporating VCare Systems’ electronic medication administration record (eMAR).
Medication management specialist VCare Systems’ eMAR platform connects care homes and pharmacies, with the aim of reducing medicine-related errors by alerting care teams to potential missed medications. Nourish currently works with more than 2,300 care services in the UK and overseas.
Introducing VCare to the Nourish roster of eMAR partners will enable mutual VCare and Nourish customers to share information between the platforms, surfacing key medication information alongside daily care records. By integrating the two systems, all medication administered will appear on the daily timeline and within the Care Plan, providing first response teams with contextual medication information via the Nourish Emergency Information Pack.
Saurabh Shah, COO and founder of VCare Systems, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be integrating our system with the Nourish market-leading digital care management software, which will bring great value to our clients. We’re excited to give more organisations the ability to visualise a full picture of a resident’s health in a single place. We see first-hand the issues in wider healthcare caused by a lack of interoperability between systems and this partnership is a pivotal step in breaking down those barriers.”
Steve Lawrence, head of propositions and partnerships at Nourish, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with VCare, this partnership will give Nourish customers further autonomy over their eMAR management. By surfacing timely and insightful medication information alongside daily care records, we are empowering care teams to deliver truly person-centred care. Nourish integrations are always carefully designed to reduce administrative burden and improve care outcomes. We are delighted to offer the positive benefits this integration brings to our customers and the people they support.”
