WATERBURY, Conn., June 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Therap has released a pharmacy interface that allows for direct information exchange between provider agencies and pharmacies that they work with to receive the updated medication information of individuals. With the pharmacy interface module, Therap users can link individuals in the pharmacy system to individuals on Therap to receive pharmacy messages. Once linked, agencies will be able to see information including when new medications are sent from the doctor's, changes to doctor's orders and hold placements. Pharmacy messages can then be used to update an individual's medication schedule and translates on to Medication administration records.
While messages are received directly from pharmacies, Therap users have flexibility as to how the information is managed and recorded on the Therap system. Currently, agencies across the country who are providing services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities use Therap for their daily documentation needs. Registered nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses use the medication administration records (MAR) module which is integrated with industry standard drug database First Databank (FDB). With MAR, users can schedule and add comments to medication and treatment records, and export MAR reports with current medications and treatments on a monthly grid. A MAR mobile application for Android devices is also available for quick entry of records in community settings and other LTSS locations.
Additionally, the Medication History tool allows RNs and LPNs to keep record of medications and update the medication information according to the received pharmacy messages. Therap's Medication History includes detailed information on side effects, drug-allergy reactions and drug-drug interactions. Users may add multiple schedules for the same medication, with each schedule having its own begin and end date/time. They can schedule daily, weekly or monthly, PRN and other medications and view past and/or future schedules on MAR if there is a medication or treatment scheduled for the current month. With the medication history tool, nurses have the necessary information to avoid or minimize medication errors.
