to safely administer medications.
Bar-code scanning at the point of care ensures the “7 rights” in medication administration: right resident, right drug, right dose, right time, right route, right reason and right documentation. Digital photos of each resident and images of their drugs ensure accurate administration. Warning messages prevent missed-dose, wrong-resident and other errors.
Scanning at the point of care highlights medications to administer and gives clear notification when medications are discontinued.
The combination of bar-coded adherence packaging and oneMAR can improve efficiencies by 2.6 times over manual MAR processes, reduce med-pass time by 52%, and eliminate monthly changeover costs.
Send electronic orders for prescriptions and supplies to the pharmacy. Track administered, discontinued, returned and wasted medications at the dose level, ensuring the availability of medications while simultaneously helping to decrease waste by up to 70%.
Access drug information, medication review tools and diagnostics that support best practices at your facility. Flow sheets for resident care flag non-drug physician orders and allow facility staff to record patient notes.
Extract information to report compliance with industry standards and to improve processes, resident care and outcomes. Pharmacy and facility staff have 24/7 data access for better collaboration and continuity of care.
Everything from pharmacy is bar-coded, from packaged oral solids to non-packaged items such as inhalers, liquids and creams. Bar-code scanning at the point of care gives you everything you need to know to safely administer medications, and helps you to efficiently and consistently achieve the 7 rights: right patient, drug, dose, time, route, reason, and documentation.
Each multi-dose package has a unique barcode. Non-packaged items, i.e. inhalers, creams and liquids are also barcoded.
Each item is checked and scanned out of inventory when leaving the pharmacy, then delivered to the facility.
Scanning at the point of care verifies the 7 rights: resident, drug, dose, time, route, reason and documentation.

Samaritan Place is a long-term care facility in Saskatoon with 100 beds. The facility has been using Catalyst's oneMAR® electronic medication administration record software since they opened nearly five years ago.
When you choose oneMAR, a dedicated project manager works with you, your team and your pharmacy partner to ensure a successful implementation, comprehensive training and a smooth transition. A kick-off meeting establishes expectations, followed by a detailed project plan and regular meetings until you and your team are successfully using oneMAR.

We have realized significant improvements in our day-to-day operations which translate to reductions in nursing workload, improved resident care, time savings, a decrease in inventory ordering, fewer medication related errors, and motivated staff.
Rita Steeple RN
Director of Care
Simply put, oneMAR eliminates medication errors and ensures proper medication adherence. I would say oneMAR is essential at Samaritan Place and I would certainly recommend it to any long-term care facility.
