156 Paperless Medication Administration: Benefits and Lessons Learned*

This presentation reviews the entire process of transitioning completely from the use of paper medication administration records to an electronic MAR. There are many intricacies with an implementation as large scale as this. However, the focus will be on detailed project planning and management, the importance of partnerships between other vendors and our electronic MAR, staff education and training, the preparation for system outages, and lessons learned.

Educational Objectives

  • Outline the planning and organization necessary to implement an eMAR at a large county jail system
  • Describe safety and documentation measures needed in case of a system or network outage
  • Identify what monitoring after implementation is necessary and how often

Level: Basic
