Nourish integrates VCare’s eMAR to its suite of services

Nourish Care has introduced VCare Systems to its suite of electronic medication administration record (eMAR) partners.

The tie-up will enable VCare and Nourish customers to share information between platforms, accessing medication information alongside daily care records to help drive better outcomes.

By integrating the two systems, all medication administered will appear on a timeline and within the care plan. The system has been designed to reduce medicine-related errors by alerting care teams to potential missed medications.

VCare Systems is a medication management company whose eMAR platform connects care homes and pharmacies. Nourish Care is an app-based care management platform that allows services to record at the point of care, streamline administrative processes and equip teams with tools to provide more person-centred support.

‘We’re excited to give more organisations the ability to visualise a full picture of a resident’s health in a single place. We see first-hand the issues in wider healthcare caused by a lack of interoperability between systems and this partnership is a pivotal step in breaking down those barriers,’ said VCare chief operating officer and founder Saurabh Shah.

Steve Lawrence, head of propositions and partnerships at Nourish, added the tie-up would give its customers more autonomy over their eMAR management. ‘By surfacing timely and insightful medication information alongside daily care records, we are empowering care teams to deliver truly person-centred care,’ he said.

Nourish works with more than 2,300 care services in the UK and overseas within residential and nursing homes, learning disability and mental health services, and other care settings.
