About This System:
Features for the medical records person:
1. All functions accessed by menu.
2. Large and easy to read dialogs (displays) for entering data.
3. Orders can be entered in any sequence but will be automatically arranged
for the document produced.
4. Automatic blocking based on order start date and frequency of
administration. Such blocking will be carried forward each month without
manual adjustment although adjustments can be made at any time.
5. Blocking preview: The blocking of an order for any month can be displayed
on your monitor ..... even future months.
6. Orders can be entered ahead of time and will be blocked out till their start
date becomes current.
7. A stop date can be specified for antibiotic and similar orders to make them
8. A list of orders for a client can be displayed on command. They will be in
order date sequence.
9. The Physician's Orders and Medication / Treatment Administration sheets
create their own form while printing. There will be no need to have an
inventory of preprinted forms.
10. Printed data is aligned automatically. The process of printing a page,
adjusting the printer and then printing another page to see if the
adjustment was effective is no longer necessary.
Features for the med passer and treatment
1. A specially selected font produces sharp clear text for readability.
2. A landscape printed simple grid promotes easy tracking of rows and
3. The spacing of the grid is as large as possible and easily permits entering
a legible 3 digit blood sugar or systolic blood pressure.
4. Orders appear on the M.A.R. and T.A.R. in the following sequence: Any
informational orders (such as crush orders) appear first. Any P.R.N.'s
appear last. In between, orders appear in chronological sequence as to the
time of the first administration of the med or treatment. Thus the error
prone mixing of P.R.N.'s with scheduled medications is eliminated.
5. The general purpose of a medication is printed at the bottom of the order:
analgesic, fever, blood pressure, antibiotic and so forth.
6. When entering data, the system enforces the correct time and shift
sequence. Times will never be out of order.
7. The client's pharmacy preference with phone number is printed at the
bottom of each sheet for easy reference when there are drug related
questions or reorders.
8. Blank sheets for manual entries can be printed at any time.
9. For Physician's Orders, entries are always printed in order date sequence
with an indicator as to the document (M.A.R and/or T.A.R.) on which the
order will appear. Orders do not have to be entered twice in order to
appear on both.
10. For the nurse reviewer, all documents are printed with a last page indicator.
This means one will always know if there are pages missing for a client.
11. Quarterly, semi-annual and annual labs and evaluations appear at the
beginning of a client's TAR. Thus they are segregated from routine entries.
The month they are due, a special message is printed to alert the nurse
Other significant features:
1. The system will work with dot matrix, ink jet and laser printers.
2. Print size is automatically reduced by 5% to accommodate the margin
requirements when printing to inkjet and laser printers. For example, the
sheets shown in this brochure were done on a laser printer.
3. Being able to print a screen was built into DOS but not Windows. Yet in
this system, you can print any screen by simply pressing the F12 key.
Screens will be converted automatically to black and white so you don't get
an inky mess on non-color printers.
4. Flexibility: This software will operate on any Windows system. To be
specific, it can operate on Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000 and XP.
5. Multifacility: This system can process a virtually unlimited number of
facilities on one installation of the software.
6. Network safe: This system is fully networkable with safe file sharing.
7. System hardware requirements are exceptionally reasonable. All you need
is 2 megabytes of disk space for the programs and an average of 10,000
bytes for each patient/client.
