Best in class care home applications join forces to deliver greater choice
Person Centred Software has announced a partnership with electronic medicines management system (eMAR) provider, Invatech Health.
The deal will see Person Centred Software’s Mobile Care Monitoring system integrate with Invatech Health’s ATLAS eMAR system.
Ernie Graham, who owns Cornford House near Tunbridge Wells, is one of the first to benefit from this software collaboration.

“We see a strong case for integration and inter-operability,” Ernie said.
“We have been marketed with ‘one stop solutions’ but don’t want to be limited as to the technology. We want to work with real in-depth specialists, with the analytics undertaken by each provider. And we want to work with the ‘best in class’ in each specialism of care and then apply the analytics from each to combine outcomes and mitigate risk, with all the data available in one place.”
ATLAS eMAR improves the safety, accountability and efficiency of the medication process. Care homes using Mobile Care Monitoring will have full visibility of the eMAR within their daily records and care plans. Combining the platforms ensures critical information will be available when needed and empowers care home staff to understand prescribing and issuing patterns, and ultimately minimise errors. The shared platform also strengthens the partnerships between care homes, GPs and pharmacies, allowing for better integration and collaboration.
Jonathan Papworth, co-founder and CEO of Person Centred Software, said: “We really like that Invatech Health develops its own software, unlike some other meds software providers on the market. ALTAS eMAR delivers an end-to-end workflow, from the receipt of a prescription, through to the delivery of the medication. Most importantly, it gives care homes the freedom to choose their pharmacist. The care home is in control and they don’t have to change pharmacist to use electronic meds.”
