<strong>Floral Park, N.Y. &mdash; Nov. 13</strong><br />Meta Pharmacy Systems, a supplier of comprehensive medication safety information systems for the health care industry, announced the release of MetaCare Enterprise eMAR&trade;, a Web-based Point of Care Medication Administration System designed to monitor and reduce medication errors through the use of barcode technology.<br /><br />MetaCare eMAR is an innovative and easy-to-use system that uses cutting-edge technology to help eliminate medication errors at the point of care. Upon scanning the patient&rsquo;s wristband barcode, MetaCare eMAR identifies and verifies the patient, searches for the medications that have been ordered for that patient and cross-checks for possible drug allergies and interactions. Subsequent scanning of the actual medication packaging verifies the correct drug, dose, route of administration and schedule. In addition, by efficiently automating the medication administration process, the system allows hospital pharmacies to more efficiently track medication inventory while providing &ldquo;five rights checking.&rdquo; <br /><br />&ldquo;MetaCare eMAR significantly reduces the number of medication errors while providing complete point of care documentation, significantly improving patient safety,&rdquo; explained Sal Barcia, CEO of Meta. &ldquo;Historically, medication errors made at the point of care are the least likely to be caught without the aid of an automated system, with sometimes catastrophic and life-threatening results. With our system, hospitals can easily track medication orders from inception through administration to the patient, all while improving billing accuracy and supporting regulatory compliance.&rdquo;<br />
