Meta® Healthcare IT Solutions, a leading clinical software provider, has been selected as the electronic health record provider for the Missouri Department of Mental Health (DMH) network through its MetaCare Enterprise™ solution. With MetaCare Enterprise, the DMH will gain closed-loop medication ordering, enhanced clinical screening of medication orders and improved medication distribution that facilitates communication among pharmacists, physicians and nurses to improve the delivery of patient care.

The Missouri DMH is the public mental health authority for the State of Missouri and is responsible for providing a safety net of services and support to individuals with mental illness, substance abuse and addiction disorders and developmental disabilities. The department serves approximately 120,000 Missouri citizens annually through its owned and operated facilities and through the use of a network of community-based private service vendors.

The Missouri DMH owns and operates 28 major mental health and developmental disabilities treatment and rehabilitation facilities across the state as well as several affiliated satellite offices. Meta will implement MetaCare at all eight DMH psychiatric and mental health institutions.

According to Sal Barcia, CEO of Meta, “MetaCare Enterprise provides an unprecedented level of patient safety that will help improve outcomes and protect patients in the state system from serious medication errors. As the State of Missouri implements each component of our EHR (Pharmacy, eMAR, and CPOE) on an increasing basis, patients will receive improved care as a result. We are pleased to assist the DMH in this vital mission.”

MetaCare Rx provides accurate documentation of medication ordered and administered to a patient, allowing for more precise pharmacy inventory management. Claims also sync with patient insurance updates and any specific medication overrides required by the insurance provider for accurate, real-time adjudication.
