How can it help you?

Seamless, secure monitoring

Enable clinical staff to seamlessly monitor prescriptions and administrations with Carenotes ePMA. All aspects of prescribing are covered, from admission to discharge, enabling staff to view the whole patient journey at a time. NHS Trusts can be confident that their patient data is always kept secure in line with NHS Information Governance requirements, while private providers can enhance their profile in the competitive private healthcare space by offering patients more personalised care with tailored care plans.

Pharmacy integration

Carenotes ePMA covers not just prescribing, but also the whole process of medication management, as the module is capable of integrating with pharmacy systems in the UK.



Improved clinical safety

The system automatically checks for medication conflicts and can actively alert prescribers of any changes


Minimise prescribing risk

Embedded decision support enables clinicians to make safe, informed choices when prescribing


At-a-glance medications management

Staff can monitor prescriptions and administrations within Carenotes ePMA

Clinical staff can seamlessly monitor prescriptions and administrations, so all aspects of prescribing are covered. This covers admission right through to discharge, enabling staff to view the whole patient journey at one time.

We have worked with Marand to configure their market-leading OpenEP product so it embeds seamlessly with our Carenotes solution. The Carenotes ePMA and Carenotes ePMA Plus modules work with your existing system, meaning the new functionality feels like an integral part of the system rather than a whole new application.

Advanced illustrations rich text patient records

Automatically-updated discharge summary

In the case where a type of medication has been changed or stopped, users can reconcile orders and update the discharge summary. This summary can then be sent to the patient’s GP or another doctor electronically – meaning all staff involved in a patient’s care stay informed.

Inbuilt prescribing warnings

To help avoid polypharmacy and duplicate prescribing, inbuilt warnings actively pop up to remind staff if a similar type of medication has already been prescribed.

Advanced medication and dosage calculations

The ePMA module also has the ability to manage complex medication calculations which may include a combination of liquid-based and infusions. Clinicians can also set a dosage maximum, which then generates warnings if the limit is reached. Additional features for paediatric dosing can also be configured within the system.

"Advanced understands how we work. This is really key. We are partners, and any benefits we derive from the new system we can share and work together to develop going forwards. Moving from paper to electronic records is the biggest single change in a clinician’s practice since they qualified. [Carenotes] has enhanced clinical safety and outcomes for patients."
Mick Mather, Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust
"Carenotes is already improving efficiency by streamlining patient management and administration. The system’s advanced reporting capabilities have also increased information governance at all our sites and provides essential business intelligence which will help us to offer higher quality care and patient outcomes for veterans."
Richard Burley, Chief Information Officer, Combat Stress
"Carenotes Mobile is going to make it even easier for staff to access information on the go, meaning they spend less time on administration and more time with patients. Giving our patients access to their records is something that is cutting-edge within the NHS. Our service is sure to grow in the coming years, and Carenotes will support that growth and help us to operate as efficiently as possible and focus resources on our patients."
Adam Carson, Associate Director of IT, Birmingham Children’s Hospital
"Advanced has an excellent reputation across the sector and having multiple products from the same supplier means that our IT systems are more integrated, which saves us considerable amounts of time and therefore money."
Marc Jordan, Assistant Principal, College of North West London
