MetaCare CPOE gives the prescriber the ability to view patient profiles and provides unparalleled decision support for all order types with results reporting anywhere they have access to the Internet. Meta's CPOE and its integrated suite of patient safety products provide a unified medication management system that allows clinicians to deliver safe, efficient patient care across the complete care continuum.
"Our closed-loop patient safety solutions work the way clinicians work, providing real-time, organization-wide access to all necessary medication administration information," explained Sal Barcia, CEO of Meta. "This unique suite of products helps clinicians save time and reduce errors while enhancing the quality of care they deliver."
A comprehensive component of the MetaCare Enterprise patient safety solutions, MetaCare CPOE operates on a single, integrated database platform that is shared by all MetaCare products, including the MetaCare Rx Pharmacy management system, MetaCare eMAR point of care bar code medication administration system and MetaCare Intellidocs electronic forms management solution. Through this platform, MetaCare Enterprise eliminates costly duplicate interfaces, offers a single user-customizable clinical knowledgebase and decision support system and creates a seamless flow of information between clinical disciplines.
