Meta® Healthcare IT Solutions, a leading clinical software provider, announced today that Southern Ohio Medial Center (SOMC), a 222-bed acute care hospital in Portsmouth, Ohio, is utilizing the company’s MetaCare Enterprise solution for order management.

As a zero-footprint browser-based solution, MetaCare Enterprise has rich functionally that enables SOMC’s physicians to place orders for every service needed by the patient. Its user interface is intuitive and full of conveniences that make SOMC’s order entry sessions as smooth and efficient possible while assuring the provider that the proper safety checks are being observed. MetaCare Enterprise boasts Complete EHR ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 Certification as an authorized E.H.R vendor, enabling providers to meet the Stage 1 meaningful use requirements.

“We chose MetaCare Enterprise for our fourth generation order management system, and having more than 30 years of experience with online order entry, we are confident that we have chosen well,” remarked Brent Richard, Director of Information Services for SOMC. “We will achieve Meaningful Use with this system, but more importantly, this tool will help us make a difference in the lives of the patients we have the privilege to serve. “

SOMC has been using MetaCare Enterprise CPOE™ since it was certified last year by fully adopting it into its acute care setting. The hospital’s unit clerks and clinicians have placed over 100,000 orders in the last several months with MetaCare Enterprise CPOE, and the transition has been very successful with extremely positive staff from SOMC’s front-line staff.

According to Angela Ridenour, RN, Manager of Physician Information Systems for SOMC, “Meta has been very responsive to our needs. They made rounds, taking direct feedback from end users. This feedback was then applied to make improvements to the product. We like the customizable order sets of MetaCare Enterprise, and the ‘Copy Forward’ features have saved time during order entry. The system allows me to personalize order entry, and I can include the service items I use most frequently and alter my choices as my needs change without having to wait for a version upgrade.”
