Floral Park (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
Meta, a supplier of comprehensive medication safety information systems for the healthcare industry, announced today that its demonstration of the new IntelliDocs product exceeded all expectations at the recent American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) Mid-year Meeting in Orlando, FL. During the show, Meta pharmacy professionals used the IntelliDocs tool to demonstrate how pharmacists could easily convert critical-use paper documents into electronic, Web-based applications.
Among the various documents that Meta demonstrated user-created electronic versions of were nursing state inspections forms, Gentamicin dosing calculation forms, pharmacy compounding logs, home meds reconciliation and drug repackaging worksheets. Not only did pharmacists see how easily the forms can be created and modified, they also saw how they can be linked to enterprise databases for browsing of existing patients and medications
"The MetaCare IntelliDocs tool helps pharmacists replace paper collection of patient data and care information with an easy-to-use, client-customizable, intelligent data collection system that eliminates repetitive data entry by creating electronic versions of paper documents that can be stored indefinitely, and, if desired, become part of the permanent electronic patient medical record," explained Bob Rosenberg, VP of Sales and Marketing at Meta. "This highly-utilitarian product has huge potential for hospital pharmacies, where tedious paper data collection and collation is time consuming and often causes inaccuracies and illegible documents that compromise patient care."
Meta also demonstrated its complete suite of medication safety information systems that help pharmacists manage all aspects of departmental objectives and allow the enterprise to strongly support patient medication safety initiatives. This is done by means of a comprehensive set of powerful, yet flexible, clinical modules, including full database integration with Meta's Web-based point-of-care medication administration system, MetaCare eMAR, which helps eliminate errors via five rights checking utilizing bar code technology.
"People also came by our booth to hear about our recent international attention of achieving near perfect bar code compliance - 98.65 percent - at one of our client sites," commented Sal Barcia, Meta CEO. "We believe this may be the highest percentage of fully scanned medication doses in the United States."
