Positive Solutions are set to launch an innovative, cloud-based medicines management system – HxCare, which will be showcased in October at the Care Show.

It is estimated that around 80% of care homes in the UK are still using paper-based Medication Administration Records (MARs) to do their rounds. The delivery of medication in this way is prone to error as well as being cumbersome for both the pharmacy and care homes. HxCare aims to digitise workflows, reduce errors and free up care providers to spend more time delivering care to their residents. Designed to be truly mobile, HxCare will be tablet based and has been developed by working closely with both care homes across the sector and their pharmacy partners who relish the prospect of an eMAR solution that integrates into their Analyst PMR.

Unlike the majority of other eMAR solutions, HxCare will be free of charge to community pharmacies signing up to the HxCare Affiliate Programme (HxCAP) making it an ideal platform to support existing care home business and attract new ones.

HxCare is one of five new products being launched by Positive Solutions on the Hx platform this year. HxConsult is already live supporting pharmacies looking to maximise their service revenue. HxIntel will deliver real-time dashboards, reports and insights into the performance of pharmacy businesses of all sizes. My Health Hub will revolutionise patient pharmacy relationships whilst HxDispense is set to be the ultimate next generation PMR system. This modular, cloud-based interoperable ecosystem takes healthcare technology to a new level.
HxCare will be showcased at the Care Show at the NEC in October (stand B20) and feature a few days later at the same venue alongside all the other new Hx products at the Pharmacy Show (stand C41). The Hx platform from Positive Solutions will raise the bar for healthcare technology in the sector and ushers in an exciting new era for Positive Solutions customers.

Steve Russell, Positive Solutions Chief Commercial Officer comments “Positive Solutions has led the way for the last 30 years in the design, supply and management of robust patient medication record systems. Bringing that expertise and pedigree to the care home sector, those adopting HxCare can expect a product that delivers exceptional value, performance and enhanced compliance and safety standards.”

“Our team have worked closely with care homes across the UK for two years to ensure that HxCare offers the functionality and benefits missing elsewhere with a strong focus on intuitive user interfaces and decluttered workflows. With an exciting roadmap of new developments already scheduled, HxCare is set to transform eMAR for years to come.”
