Corrections professionals commonly work with on-staff medical professionals, providers, or outside contractors. To maximize your protection, COs can use Mobile Command on SPARTAN to log whether offenders Accept or Decline pill call. You can scan an inmate’s RFID card or RFID wristband, or manually swipe accepts and declines. 

This approach often runs in parallel with an electronic medication administration records (eMARs) solution, such as Medication Manager, or a comprehensive electronic health records system (EHR). Data generated by COs stays within your GUARDIAN RFID platform for corrections-specific reporting, while data captured by medical professionals will remain in the eMAR or EHR/EMR.


Logging Medication Administration During Pill Call with a EHR/EMR 

If your medical staff is using an EHR or EMR, and you want to extend your GUARDIAN RFID powered inmate identification to a third-party system, deploy our ForceField Desktop Readers to write a unique digital code to the RFID tag. Connect a ForceField Desktop Reader to each laptop running the EHR/EMR. The EHR/EMR will auto-identify the inmate instantly, pulling up their medical chart to assist in identifying quickly and accurately the correct inmate and their medication needs.
