WHY IS MEDICATION MANAGEMENT NECESSARY?
Medication management is an essential part of any treatment plan. When a patient or caregiver understands the purpose, dosage, side effects and other unique qualities of the medications being prescribed, they have a higher success rate of follow through. Aging individuals need caregivers who also have access to this education, whether those caregivers are able to attend doctor appointments or not.
The Medication Management App developed by United Medical Equipment Business Solutions Network, Inc. is the essential application for all health care professionals, caregivers, students, and family members who provide direct or indirect patient care and education. It provides 12 different functionalities within the convenience of one application, making it ideal for quick, well-informed (and potentially lifesaving) decision making on the go.
The different tools and features with our new app include:
- A medication drug dictionary
- Medication Reminder/Log
- Pill Identifier
- Convert Metric-US/Imperial for height, weight, volume and temperature
- Make dosage calculations
- Y-site IV compatibility; for nurses taking care of patients with IV access
- HIPAA Compliant Secure:
- Chat Messaging
- Telehealth Video Conferencing
- Reduced Rate CEU Portal for individual state licensure requirements.
Descriptions/Examples for app features:
- Medication/Drug Guide: We offer a drug dictionary where you can get an overview of the medication, see possible side effects, dosage (how much of the medication should be taken and how often as prescribed), and possible interactions with other medications or food.
- Pill Identifier: Identify a pill by inputting any markings, score marks, color, and shape.
- Dosage Converter: Many medications are ordered to be given by a certain amount (mg) per weight (kg) over a certain period (hours or minutes). Conversions: Examples: Weight = 2.2 pounds to 1kg Length/height = 1 inch to 2.5cm Volume = 1 ounce to 30 ml Temperature = 98.6 F to 37 C
- Y-Site IV Compatibility: This app feature is very beneficial for nurses who are taking care of patients with one IV access. IV compatibility ensures that two medications that need to be infused at the same time in the one IV site have no interactions with each other for patient safety. For example, when you don’t want the medications to crystalize, coagulate, yield adverse effects, or decrease their effectiveness.
Medication Management is 100% HIPAA compliant. With our enhanced and secured encryption platforms, any personal information is kept protected within the application. The app has multi-factor login protection, ensuring that any and all Health Protected Information (HPI) is kept where it belongs.

“UMEBSNI has a HIPAA compliant application for video, voice, and text between two iPad, iPhone, and/or Android device. The application has many uses besides typical inter-professional communication. One use could be bedside consults. The nurse calls the provider with a SBAR exclaiming that a patient is “breathing a little funny.” Unlike a text-based HIPAA application, the UMEBSNI applications enable the nurse to connect with the patient and a provider using video and audio. This could prevent a needless intervention or alert the provider to a worsening clinical course. Another use is within the academic setting. Telehealth has been a long-standing application for connecting the clinical supervisory faculty with the student in the clinical setting. The UME Telehealth application provides a cost-effective solution for every student having a common iPhone or Android intelligent phone to securely connect with supervisory faculty for evaluation or a teaching moment.” David T. DNP, ACNP-C Assistant Clinical Professor Arizona University
