Garden City, NY (PRWEB) June 14, 2012
Meta® Healthcare IT Solutions, a leading clinical software provider, announced today that Navos, a private, non-profit organization that offers a full spectrum of innovative mental health services to thousands of low income children and adults each year, has gone live with the company's computerized physician order entry (CPOE) system, MetaCare CPOE™. The successful implementation follows the deployment of the MetaCare Rx pharmacy management system and MetaCare eMAR, the company’s barcoded point of care medication administration and documentation system.
Founded in 1966, Navos offers services from crisis intervention to inpatient care to highly specialized and recovery-oriented outpatient services for individuals and families at every life stage. MetaCare CPOE provides Navos with a highly-functional order entry solution designed to reduce the complexity of order entry through simplifying key processes, increasing efficiency and avoiding too much reliance on human memory. With an added focus on medication safety, the solution will allow Navos to improve patient safety through the reduction of medication errors while reducing costs through reduced order turnaround time.
“The detailed medication security features of MetaCare CPOE will allow us to provide another layer of safety in our comprehensive patient care,” stated Jerry Scott, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer for Navos. “Our mission is to improve the quality of life of people vulnerable to mental illness by providing a broad continuum of care, and this is one more way in which we can do that."
Along with increasing patient safety and security, MetaCare CPOE significantly reduces the cost of creating, printing and storing paper forms. Navos can use the solution to process all inpatient orders, provide fully integrated, closed loop medication safety and improve communication with all related clinicians and departments.
“We applaud Navos and the services it provides to members of its community as well as others throughout the country,” stated Sal Barcia, CEO of Meta. “Closing the loop on medication safety is a critical step in reducing errors and improving patient outcomes. Being part of their mission is important to the Meta team, and we are excited to be able to offer a solution which enhances the care they provide.”
