MED e-care is excited to announce the arrival of our updated MAR Hotlist feature.
We have updated the look and feel of our existing Hotlist and have added access to PRN protocol reviews. Please refer to our support article on PRN Protocols for further information.
This update is available for all our e-MAR users for free. The MAR Hotlist now provides information on:
- Follow Ups
- Overdue Medication (AKA gaps or missing signatures/entries)
- Overdue Treatment (AKA topicals)
- Bio Tests
- PRN Protocol Reviews
