Garden City, NY (PRWEB) July 12, 2012
Meta® Healthcare IT Solutions, a leading healthcare IT software provider, announced today that Saline Memorial Hospital (SMH) in Benton, Arkansas, has gone live with the company’s MetaCare eMAR™ medication administration system.
SMH is a full-service, 167-bed hospital that has served Saline County and surrounding areas for more than 55 years. As a non-profit community hospital, SMH offers a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services including interventional cardiology, women’s services and advanced surgical procedures. The hospital's medical staff consists of more than 180 active and consulting physicians. Using advanced barcode technology, MetaCare eMAR provides SMH with medication safety at the point of care by eliminating medication errors at this critical stage in a patient’s treatment. Also, by efficiently automating the hospital’s medication administration process and by integrating documentation activities such as vital sign and I & O documentation, MetaCare eMar actually enhances its nurses’ workflow and efficiency as it improves patient safety.
"Patient safety is our top priority, and utilizing MetaCare eMAR greatly helps us reduce medication errors to meet that goal," remarked Carla Robertson, Chief Financial Officer/Chief Operating Officer at SMH. "Through our previous work with Meta, we know that they have top quality customer support to meet their customized solutions."
MetaCare eMar provides the clinicians at SMH with the information they need, when and where they need it. The hospital previously implemented the MetaCare Enterprise RX™ pharmacy system and has benefitted from the closed-loop medication ordering, administration and patient safety system that links pharmacists, physicians and nurses to improve the delivery of patient care.
“We have enjoyed serving SMH and offering solutions to meet their specific needs," explained Sal Barcia, CEO of Meta Healthcare IT Solutions. "Through their implementation of MetaCare Enterprise EHR, we will be able to work with them step by step in their quest for meaningful use through enhanced clinical documentation, reduced medication errors and much more.”
