Ever wondered what the difference is between electronic medication administration records (eMAR) and electronic medication management (eMM)? You’re not alone. But don’t fear, we’ve got a handy guide for you!
eMAR is an electronic version of a paper MAR chart, that records all medication administered to a service user. It’s much more efficient and easier to store, share and search records.
eMM is the overall system of medication administration that uses technology to address service users’ needs better. This includes the entire journey a medication makes, from prescription to administration, and all the steps afterwards, like stock checks, monitoring and refills.
eMAR makes up the administration part of the overall eMM system.
If you want to start saving time and improving the accuracy and efficiency of your medication administration, our eMar system is the perfect place to start.
