Creative Strategies provides vital medication administration solution for prominent senior living operator
Elmcroft Senior Living, one of the largest, top-tier senior living community providers in the country has introduced ACCUflo, the proven and trusted go-to medication management system, into more than half of their senior living communities. Creative Strategies, a leading innovator of medication and care management software technology, developed ACCUflo for use among long-term care pharmacies and Assisted Living, Memory Care, and skilled nursing communities.
ACCUflo is an intuitive, electronic medication administration record (eMAR) system. The system tracks every step in the medication administration process. It simplifies caregivers’ duties and workflow by allowing them easy and safe access to residents’ medical records, medication, and treatments. The system supports barcode scanning of medication packages to confirm proper resident, drug, dosage, and give time prior to administration, and notifies caregivers when medication or treatments are due. ACCUflo tracks when and by whom the medication is accessed while reporting, in real time, back to the pharmacy for a streamlined approach that reduces manual paperwork while saving time and money.
Elmcroft operates more than 83 senior living communities and four multi-level retirement communities, serving more than 6,000 residents in 18 states. Elmcroft’s mission is to enrich the lives of those that live and work with them by responding to each resident’s unique needs and universal desire for dignity and respect. Over the past few years, the company has implemented ACCUflo in more than half of their senior living communities to support their passionate pursuit of excellent care and service. They plan to continue the rollout across all their communities in the future.
“ACCUflo gives us assurance that we are providing the safest possible medication administration process for our residents,” said Pat Mulloy, CEO of Elmcroft Senior Living. “It is evident the Creative Strategies team shares our passion for service excellence as their outstanding around-the-clock support has instilled great confidence among our caregivers.”
Dispensed orders are accurately communicated to care staff through ACCUflo’s integration with pharmacy management systems. Pharmacies can then provide their senior living clients with reliable data that identifies discontinued orders, ensures expired medication is properly handled and controlled drugs are accounted for and not diverted. Senior living providers are increasingly turning to ACCUflo to simplify caregiver workflow, maximize resident safety and increase compliance.
“We are truly honored that Elmcroft Senior Living has chosen ACCUflo as their go-to solution for managing point-of-care administration of medications in their senior living communities,” said Jerry Merritt, CEO of Creative Strategies. “Our team shares Elmcroft’s vision for making these precious, later years of life fulfilling and enjoyable for residents by giving them the highest quality of care they so plainly deserve.”
Creative Strategies (booth #42) will be showcasing its ACCUflo medication and care management software solution at the upcoming Florida Argentum Conference to be held in Boca Raton, Florida, July 26-28, 2017.
