Bloomington, MN-based software company MatrixCare announced Wednesday that it has entered into a national pharmacy integration and electronic medication administration record agreement with senior living and long-term care pharmacy company PharMerica.
The agreement covers National Council for Prescription Drug Programs bidirectional e-prescribing with all of MatrixCare’s customer facilities as well as pharmacy-centric order entry integration with MatrixCare’s CareAssist platform. The platform combines eMAR and point-of-care functionality in an effort to help streamline workflows and documentation for frontline caregivers in senior living communities and skilled nursing facilities.
MatrixCare now will have the ability to communicate with PharMerica’s proprietary AS400 software.
“MatrixCare’s eMAR functionality with real-time facility-centric or pharmacy-centric order entry with PharMerica will significantly improve the efficiency of caregivers while reducing medication-related errors,” MatrixCare President and CEO John Damgaard said. “We are excited to finalize this agreement with PharMerica and are pleased to add them to our roster of national, in-network pharmacies.”
