MED e-care is excited to announce that we have an updated look and feel for our Bio-tests feature.
Bio tests are measurements taken from the body. These can be:
- Blood pressure
- Heart rate
- Respiration rate
- Blood creatinine
- Blood sugar
- Oxygen saturation
This update is available for all our e-MAR users for free.
Click the heart icon in the medication round to access the bio-test feature:
indicates that a test has been created and needs to be performed.
indicates that no test has yet been created for that medication.
Creating and Associating Tests
To create a new test, click Create/Associate Test and New
Enter in the details of the test you wish to create:
You can create a standalone test (e.g. height) or associate a test with a particular medication, (e.g. heart rate before administering Digoxin).
To complete the test, click on Complete Test and Start
Enter in the test results and click Save
The results of previous tests can be viewed by clicking History of Test
Click Close to finish and return to the medication screen.
You can also access Bio-tests from the MAR Hotlist <enter link to MAR Hotlist release notes>:
We welcome your feedback on how this new feature is improving your resident’s care and your staff's compliance. More importantly we'd love to hear about how we can make it better and easier to use.
We will continue to review this feature as we receive more feedback.
