Accurate Patient Assessments

The Patient Care tools allow nurses to easily access a patient's history—transcribed documents, x-rays, and previous records or documents—document vital signs, create care plans, and document conditions using scales and scores.

Each documentation tool is customizable to a facility’s needs based on department or patient population. Working with your team, we can also configure system triggers for specific care plans or referrals for treatment based on nurse assessments.

Plan and Perform Patient Care

The Patient Care tools help nurses streamline patient care with customized care plans. Care plans can also be individualized based on patient needs and interdisciplinary care team input.

Plans are created by entering scheduled tasks and treatments into a worklist. Nurses can use these lists to help guide their practice and coordinate with other nurses in organizing the care of patients.

Accurate Medication Administration

Our Electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR) provides a medication process that drives patient safety, efficiency, and charge accuracy. This solution has integrated features for a closed-loop medication administration process through bar code scanning. A core value of eMAR is the correct identification of the Five Rights of Medication Administration—the right patient, drug, dose, route, and time.

Each clinical solution meets the regulatory requirements for the documentation of medication administration and accommodates standard nurse workflows, including:

  • Consent for Administration
  • First Dose Education
  • Follow-up Assessments

Improve Patient Education

Armed with MEDHOST clinical tools, nurses can quickly document all patient education tasks, log patients’ understanding, and make notes for necessary follow-ups. Nurses can also share documentation of education with members of an interdisciplinary care team.

Additional discharge education materials can be made available through a third-party integration that provides comprehensive patient education resources covering initial treatment to discharge.
