    ADT functionality

    Physician Orders
    Create, update and electronically sign physician orders with a few mouse clicks. Orders display in the same format as a printed physician orders sheet, with the ability to drill down to the details of an order. Entered orders are electronically sent via a HL7 Bi-directional gateway to vendor systems, and the results can be returned to update the Orders.

    Templates & Packaged Order Sets
    Setup templates for commonly used orders and assemble templates in order sets to apply many orders at once to a patient. Order sets save time by automatically entering multiple orders. When applying an order aet, you have an option to exclude specific orders from the package. All generated orders can be updated individually.

    Renew-All Functions & Patient Schedules
    The Renew-All function tracks when the patient's orders are due for next renewal and a dashboard displays the schedule.

    Census Driven
    The census ADT module manages the patient status and data so the caregivers can enter orders in real-time.

    Alerts, Notifications and Dashboards
    View automatic alerts and notifications on dashboard and scorecard screens. Reduce medication errors and costs by using the first dataBank's drug database to verify that orders do not conflict with the patient's current drugs, foods or allergies. Print or display patient educational drug monographs.

    eMAR/Electronic Medication Administration Record
    eMARs provides nurses an efficient way of charting administration of medications and treatments. The eMAR replaces the traditional paper MAR, and is integrated with order entry (CPOE). Medication orders automatically appear in the EMR when they are due to be given to the patients. The user interface mimics a traditional paper MARs which records nursing administration events by clicking in the appropriate cell and indicating the medication or treatment was given together with other details and results.

    Medication Carts
    eMARs can be displayed on PC screens or touch screen enabled screens. Screens can be mounted on the wall or directly on the medication cart.

    Positive Patient Id - Barcodes
    Administration can be recorded using barcode scanners. The patient wears a bar-coded bracelet containing their patient account information. The nurse scans the patient bracelet to select and display the patient's eMAR screen. As each medication is given, the nurse scans the barcode on the medication card. Each scan is verified against the patient's orders to ensure that the medication belongs to the patient. Once all the medications are given, the patient's bracelet is rescanned to validate the patient given the meds matches the patient that was originally selected.

    Reporting
    Easy to use reports for missed medications, review of administration times, nurse selected parameters for patient lists, and custom reports designed by the client. The system tracks errors, missed medications/treatments, the identity of the user, and can print these reports on demand.
