East Troy, WI – ECP announced today that their electronic medication administration record (eMAR) platform has received approval from the Arkansas State Board of Pharmacy to connect to pharmacies within the state. ECP is the leading provider of web-based clinical, business, and compliance software to over 2,000 assisted living communities and other long-term care providers.
 
ECP’s eMAR platform allows assisted living and other long-term care communities to connect electronically to pharmacies to directly share medication information, improving safety and efficiency. Electronic sharing of medication information also improves medication oversight and reduces the possibility of med errors.
 
“We're excited to provide the most advanced, safety-driven, pharmacy-integrated eMAR system to the state of Arkansas. Electronic pharmacy integration, along with the educational tools and automation that ECP provides, will significantly benefit Arkansas' assisted living communities, pharmacies, and, most importantly, residents.” said James Baumeister, Director of Pharmacy Systems at ECP.

ECP is connected to over 500 LTC pharmacies across the country and interfaces with all major pharmacy management software. Electronically interfacing pharmacy and long-term-care community systems eliminates the need for redundant data entry, promoting safe medication administration.
