ATLAS PCS the next generation of eMAR products for safety, accountability and efficiency, now available through local pharmacies
The latest evolution of electronic medicines management systems has been launched by Invatech Health. The ATLAS family of eMAR products is the culmination of many years of research, development and innovation in the care sector by the company. The ATLAS eMAR family, formerly known as Proactive Care System, includes:
• ATLAS PCS – An easy to use hand-held device for safe administration of medicines to residents through barcode validation of medicines at the point of administration.
• ATLAS Central – An online central portal to evidence compliance with all regulatory requirements relating to medicines
• ATLAS Scorecard – Automatic monitoring of operational performance using data on medicines management
• ATLAS Insights – Artificial intelligence applied to clinical data for better care of residents
ATLAS is the only eMAR in the UK to have been independently evaluated. Cardiff University carried out the evaluation as part of the Welsh’s Government’s Health Technology and Telehealth Fund and found ATLAS improves safety by eradicating 21 out of 23 types of errors, improves accountability and reduces missing entries by 80%. The average time saving per care home per month is a staggering 65 hours.
ATLAS is provided directly to the care home by Invatech and organisations can choose which pharmacy they wish to supply their medicines. The unique connection to the supplying pharmacy means that care staff are able to monitor dispensing status in real-time.
Tariq Muhammad Invatech Health CEO said “we have put all our experience of medicines management in the sector into the development of ATLAS. It not only has all the features that carers and nurses want, but it also provides senior management with the data to evidence outstanding care. The new service model means that care homes can now choose the ATLAS as their eMAR and have their supply of medicines from the pharmacy of their choice”.
