Invatech Health has secured a major contract with Sanctuary Care, to roll out an electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR) system across its national care home network.
Bristol-based Invatech won a competitive Europe-wide tendering process to provide its Atlas eMAR system to Sanctuary’s 90 UK care homes, the sixth-largest operation of its kind in the UK.
The new relationship is set to improve safety, accountability and efficiency for Sanctuary Care’s 5,000 residents and its staff, as well as enabling closer working with local GPs and pharmacies.
In August, Invatech Health launched a new Patient Medication Record (PMR) system called Titan, following the first industry accreditation from the NHS in more than a decade.
Titan is an entirely new, innovative, cloud-based PMR solution capable of managing end-to-end workflow within pharmacies, to speed up the user experience for patients and practice owners alike.
Tariq Muhammad, CEO at Invatech Health, said: “One of our major ambitions is to transform medicine management in care homes for residents and staff and working with Sanctuary Care, one of the biggest providers of care in the UK, is a major step towards achieving this.
“We also want to provide fantastic new opportunities for local independent pharmacists who for decades, were denied the opportunity to provide pharmacy services to large care home operators.
“So through the use of our technology, both at the care home and the pharmacy, we are able to connect Sanctuary’s care homes across the country to local pharmacies, giving great local service and improving local businesses whilst ensuring governance and control through the software. We believe this model is a game-changer benefiting all stakeholders.”
