During the MHA Conference in Las Vegas QuickMAR held its annual partner event. We bused everyone from the Bellagio to the Stratosphere where we had dinner on the 104th floor and took in breath taking views of the strip and the Las Vegas valley at sunset. During dinner, Stan Turner, president of QuickMAR, gave a presentation on the release of CareSuite by QuickMAR 3.2. He discussed new features such as document management and notifications. He also gave a preview of CareSuite Manager by QuickMAR.
After dinner anyone brave enough headed to the top of the tower and rode the Stratosphere thrill rides. We are happy to report everyone survived the rides and made it back to the bus in one piece.
MHA also released its annual Independent Long Term Care Member Study during the conference. Owners and operators of independent LTC Pharmacies were surveyed about the technology their pharmacies use. Electronic medical records (e-MAR) are currently utilized by 56% of respondents. We are pleased that, for the fourth consecutive year, QuickMAR continues to lead the market nationally, as the most widely used e-MAR by long term care pharmacies. Of those using an e-MAR nearly half (45%) use QuickMAR – more than double the next closest vendor (22%).
“As the most popular eMAR in the industry, QuickMAR has become a household name,” said John Purnell, vice president of sales. “However, our loyal customers are thrilled to discover that QuickMAR now offers much more than just a standalone eMAR! ‘QuickMAR Pro’ has been rebranded as ‘CareSuite by QuickMAR’, wherein customers can activate several included modules beyond the core QuickMAR eMAR module, such as ADL Tracking, Behavior Tracking, Charting Notes, Inventory Tracking, and more – all at no additional charge! For a nominal fee, customers can also add CareSuite Manager for Assessments, Care Planning, Billing, etc.”
The next conference QuickMAR will be at is the ALFA 2015: The Senior Living Executive Conference May 4-7th in Tampa, FL.
