Traditional paper body maps are used to record injuries and display where medication has been administered but the cost of using paper body maps can quickly add up and can also be very time-consuming for you as a care manager. This can and will all change with our new body-mapping feature, which will allow you to ensure the information on clients' medication schedule is accurate, reducing any risk of error and giving caregivers more confidence when out in the field delivering care.
