PACE Case: Improved Pain Control

An 85-year-old female PACE participant with a past medical history of arthritis, neck and back pain, hypertension, insomnia, and asthma called CareKinesis seeking a pharmacist's help identifying one of her pills.

Pharmacists Concerned about Medication Errors

A recent article published in the BMC Health Services Research Journal describes the impact of implementing a hospital electronic prescribing and medication administration (ePA) system on clinical pharmacists' daily activities. While pharmacists involved in the study identified several valuable ePA features, there were concerns that some unintentionally contribute to medication errors. The pharmacists also identified a reduction in time spent with patients.

CareKinesis's EireneRx is tailored for pharmacist use and is constantly evolving to meet the needs of prescribers. Our custom-built, adaptable e-prescribing interface sets EireneRx apart from ePA systems. CareKinesis consistently works toward streamlining services without creating additional barriers for healthcare providers involved in participant care.
