Still Printing Dot Matrix? Here Are 6 Reasons to Print Laser

If you’re still using pre-printed dot matrix medication administration records (MARs) for your facilities, you may want to consider switching to the laser printed version for some very good reasons.

Laser printed MARs give you much more flexibility when printing. They print faster, quieter and give you more printing options. These six benefits will make you want to convert to laser MARs in no time!

1. It’s Low Maintenance

You don’t have to line up the paper to begin printing. Just place paper in the printer’s trayand you’re good to go.

2. Increase Workflow Efficiency

Printing new admissions and new orders is faster, convenient and simple.

3. Timing Is Everything

You can use additional features such as named times and time text.

4. Eliminate Potential Errors

The type prints clearly and images can be added to MARs to ensure proper medication administration. Eliminate potential errors by adding the patient’s photo right on the MAR.

5. You Have Options

Laser MARs can easily print in PDF format or can be emailed directly to a facility, which is helpful for order changes or new admissions.

6. Clarify Dose Periods

Doses that are short-term orders are not given daily or are displayed as blackout boxes.

These are only some of the benefits of using laser printed MARs.

If your facilities are using dot matrix MARs and you would like them to convert to laser, print out a few samples of laser MARs and show facilities all their capabilities!
