Technological Innovations to Support Assisted Living Medication Administration

SH DisplayOne of the biggest concerns for those caring for an aging loved one, especially those who may be experiencing memory loss, is proper medication administration. Fortunately, today’s medical innovations make it easier than ever to ensure that your loved one is getting the medication and care that they need.

Through the Signature Trends program of Spring Hills, we utilize state-of-the-art technology to better serve our residents and make medication administration a seamless process. eMAR (Electronic Medication Administration Record) is a tool that affords our caregivers everything they need to ensure residents are being cared for and taking medications properly. In utilizing this innovative technology, our team can spend more time doing what they do best—caring for your loved one on a more personal level.

PointClickCare for Assisted Living Medical Administration

Our PointClickCare system takes advantage of the benefits of eMAR, empowering assisted living and private home caregivers to give more to residents. This advanced form of technology provides caregivers with:

  • Electronic documentation for easier and error-free tracking
  • Accurate, on-time medical administration for assisted living residents
  • Real-time patient updates for all health care providers
  • The ability to spend more time with patients and less time on documentation

The PointClickCare system allows for in-depth medical information such as vital signs, medication administration, and observations to be easily recorded and viewed by the appropriate caregivers. This has made it possible for us to gain greater insight into the health of our residents, improving our level of care tremendously. For example, this technology allows us to identify and address concerns before they escalate, such as respiratory infections or urinary tract infections.

Enhancing Our Routine Care Procedures with Technology

With eMAR, our caregivers are empowered to spend more energy interacting with our residents, building relationships with them and better understanding their needs. Our PointClickCare system is even more remarkable for our memory care residents who may have trouble keeping track of their health history and medication management. With the profound advantages for everyone involved, especially our seniors, we are committed to staying abreast of the latest innovations in medical technology.
