Floral Park, NY (PRWEB) January 11, 2011
Meta Healthcare IT Solutions, a supplier of comprehensive clinical information systems for the healthcare industry, today announced that Southern Ohio Medical Center (SOMC), located in Portsmouth, Ohio, has implemented the company's MetaCare IntelliDocs™ solution for clinical documentation.
MetaCare IntelliDocs serves to expedite the documentation process by correcting problems of legibility, accuracy and avoidance of redundant data entry through powerful tools that look and feel like the paper forms they’re replacing. The solution can be used for maintaining demographic records, patient medical history, medication, allergies, immunization status, laboratory results, radiology images, billing and more. Its implementation automates workflow, increases patient safety and privacy and offers more cost-effective, better quality care.
"With IntelliDocs, our forms are legible and accessible and can be accessed from multiple users in multiple departments simultaneously," remarked Tim Lacey, RN, BSN, Shift Manager of Inpatient Services for SOMC. "We've had great success with the solution, and it's been a time saver since our nurses can access patient data no matter what room they're in throughout our recently expanded hospital."
Used as a stand-alone or integrated with other Meta clinical information products, MetaCare IntelliDocs converts familiar paper forms and documents into an electronic medium. These forms are then user-defined and modified to meet specific user requirements. In addition, IntelliDocs synchronizes patient records across multiple locations to allow for easy integration with other Meta applications and auto population of desired fields, reducing time-consuming manual data entry.
“We have been working with SOMC to help them meet their goal of attaining Stage 7 of HIMSS Analytics' EMR Adoption ModelSM, and their implementation of IntelliDocs is another significant milestone in that direction," explained Sal Barcia, CEO of Meta. "Along with increasing patient safety, privacy and security, the solution significantly reduces the cost of creating, printing and storing paper forms.”
MetaCare IntelliDocs is an integral part of MetaCare Enterprise EHR™, Meta's complete suite of clinical information solutions. The suite also includes MetaCare CPOE™, MetaCare Rx™ pharmacy system, MetaCare eMar™ point of care medication administration system and MetaCare IntelliForms™ electronic patient data collection. MetaCare Enterprise EHR is one of only a handful of such products streamlined through one common database.
