EHR Solutions for Nurses
Point of Care Administration Record (eMAR)
Serious errors can occur at any point in the medication process — at the point of physician order, order transcription, pharmacy processing, distribution, or administration by the nurses. However, while errors that occur earlier in the process are often caught by clinical staff in subsequent review, errors committed at the bedside have little chance of being detected. Our point-of-care drug administration system provides nurses with the tools necessary to prevent these errors.
Audit Logs & Clinical Reports
CHS utilizes audit logs & clinical reports to accurately record and relay important patient care information. Integrated within our CPOE, eMAR, and pharmacy management applications, all logs and reports can be shared easily and securely between departments, improving workflow and providing an added level of security during patient care. These two essential components of our EHR track and document all transactions, changes, and inquiries to provide the administration with a detailed report of all end-user activity. The audit history offers a comprehensive understanding, along with the complete patient profile, of a patient’s unique medical history. Our Rx application also includes a medication audit history feature that reveals all clinical alerts overridden by the pharmacy, and shares order-specific notes between the pharmacist and other clinicians.
Complete Patient Profiles
Critical patient information is made readily accessible to clinicians of all disciplines with the complete patient profile. Each profile includes personal information, patient photo, demographics, allergies, vitals, diagnoses, patient history, integrated lab and radiology results, admission dates, medication lists, and much more. Supplying clinicians with a secure and convenient method of managing and communicating patient information is one of the many ways in which Meta’s clinical decision support facilitates responsible patient care and improves overall outcomes.
Computerized Prescriber Order Entry (CPOE)
Offers a unique system flexibility that encompasses every aspect of patient care, and helps to eliminate errors at every phase in the treatment process. Empower your facility with the ability to:
- Streamline order entry
- Securely manage and universally access information from one web-based location
- Ensure patient safety with an input-sensitive Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS)
Users possess the ability to customize order types, order entry details, priority, co-sign specifications, order protocol, system look and feel, as well as create freeform platform event categories, Common Order Sets, and Protocol Order Sets.
Real-Time Flow Sheets
An important part of our unified database, real-time flow sheets facilitate the interdepartmental communication of crucial patient information. These charts display a patient’s complete vital signs and diagnostic results history, audit logged in reverse chronological order to provide clinicians with an accurate patient health record. Automatically synced with up-to-date patient information, our flow sheets eliminate cumbersome paperwork and time-consuming report updates.
Integrated Vital Signs Documentation
Relaying critical patient information between departments is one of the most important functions of an EHR. CHS incorporates integrated vital signs documentation into each step of the care process, allowing physicians, pharmacists, and nurses to view and record their patients’ vital signs before proceeding. Having these values always accessible helps to improve workflow and reduce medical errors between departments.
Electronic MAR Notes
Errors at the point of care not only pose the biggest threat to patient health but are often the most difficult errors to detect and prevent. Electronic MAR notes help minimize the risk of error at the bedside by providing nurses with important patient information.
Comprehensive eForms Library
Our comprehensive eForm library helps to simplify the transition into electronic documentation by providing access to an extensive catalog of pre-configured electronic forms. Our database contains over 600 existing templates that are currently in live use at our clients’ facilities. These eForms conform to the needs of numerous specialty disciplines and hospital departments upon deployment.
Progress Notes & Interdepartmental Communication
Stay connected with every clinical department in your facility using the secure messaging application and various notes. These easy tools share patient-specific comments between clinicians without the hassle of illegible handwriting and communication lag time.
Identification Verification Technology
The use of identification verification technology to authenticate facility personnel, patients, and related therapies has radically improved modern medicine within the last ten years. Recognizing the intrinsic benefits of implementing these systems, our team has incorporated more secure authentication measures, especially in regards to medication administration safety.
System security is of key importance when choosing an EHR. We constantly work to ensure our clients possess the most rigorous EHR security measures available. From user login to system operation, we provide technology across all of our EHR applications that safeguard the transmission and input of patient data.
Integrated EHR Diagnostic Results
Relaying information between departments is one of the most important functions of an EHR. we incorporate diagnostic results into each step of the care process, allowing physicians, pharmacists, and nurses to view, record, and assess the results to better treat their patients. Meta’s integrated EHR diagnostic results improve workflow and reduce errors by providing ensuring clinicians have access to critical patient information.
Access and Design Electronic Clinical Documentation
A powerful and cutting-edge EHR system, to be fully capable of assisting clinicians, must be equipped with a dynamic and flexible solution to facilitate patient data collection. The evidence has been made clear in recent years: paper forms fatigue clinical staff, burden clinicians with inefficiency, and can leave clinicians vulnerable to error. Healthcare providers are now turning to electronic patient records to minimize production costs, do away with printing and file management, increase patient privacy and security, and make form access easier, saving clinicians precious time and improving patient care.
Clinical Decision Support
Clinical Decision Support (CDS) systems have a number of important benefits, including an improvement in the quality of care, patient outcomes, and staff efficiency, as well as a reduction of errors, adverse drug events, and superfluous spending. Our products not only enable clinicians with intuitive decision support software but do so intelligently so as to avoid encumbering clinicians with alert fatigue.
Population Health Management
Electronic Health Records are vital to effective population health management allowing facility staff to store, organize, and analyze patient data pertinent to modern-day concerns. Information can be easily interfaced with external immunization registries, immunization information systems, and public health agencies (PHAs).
Fully Integrated EHR Database with Web-Based Design
One unified database, one integrated EHR for all. All information is shared across our individual clinical applications with a single database to facilitate interdepartmental communication. Our web-based design allows for clinicians to access patient charts, test results, and all other necessary information from a remote location, with no information stored on site.
Risk Assessment Module
A major factor in safeguarding patient safety is the clinician’s ability to evaluate the potential risks to a patient’s health. In order to properly perform this assessment, a clinician must both recognize the risk potential and perform tedious and time-consuming calculations that are subject to human error.
To improve care and provide clinicians with more time at the bedside, we developed a Risk Assessment Module that not only evaluates potential risk but also alerts clinicians to it.
Integrated Drug Monographs and Medical References
A useful tool for clinicians, integrated drug monographs and medical references provide medical staff with important information for making accurate and responsible patient assessments. Our database can be referenced from multiple locations, and accessed by all clinicians. Pharmacists have access to the American Hospital Formulary Service database and can share useful drug information with other clinicians using these references and clinical Progress Notes.
