Person Centred Software acquires medication management system company Atlas eMAR
Digital care management system provider Person Centred Software has acquired Atlas eMAR, a medication management system that digitally links care homes to GP prescribing systems and the supplying pharmacy.
The two companies have been in partnership with each other for five years through integrated products.
The Atlas eMAR system operates in 165 pharmacies and more than 700 care homes across Great Britain.
Jonathan Papworth, founder of Person Centred Software, said: “I have been impressed with the proven capabilities built into Atlas, alongside the unique level of integration across GPs and pharmacies. Atlas is joining our family of social care products to provide best-in-class clinical software for our global customers, from digital care records to medication management and beyond. This will provide our joint customers with the opportunity to have full interoperability across our products, as well as the most comprehensive and capable integration with healthcare systems.”
Tariq Muhammad, founder of Atlas, added: “Many years ago, my team and I set out to solve the challenges that care homes faced with managing medicines. This journey saw us create the UK’s first eMAR system and gave rise to Atlas, which has contributed to outstanding efficiencies and medication safety in care homes. I have long admired the ethos of Jonathan and the team at Person Centred Software as they share the same conviction to improve care and quality in social care. I am very proud to see Atlas continue its journey from this point onwards as part of the Person Centred Software family, where I know the combination of two great products will deliver game-changing services to the care sector.”
