Columbus, OH (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
PointClickCare, the most widely used electronic health record (EHR) platform for the long-term and post-acute care industries, today announced at the Ohio Health Care Association (OHCA) Annual Conference that it has formally received Approvable status from the Ohio State Board of Pharmacy for the use of its Integrated Medication Management system for computerized physician order entry (CPOE) and electronic medication administration (eMAR) for Omnicare and PharMerica pharmacy systems.
PointClickCare’s CPOE and eMAR solutions support the integration to pharmacy dispensing systems through a bi-directional prescription data exchange, through use of national standards such as NCPDP and HL7 messaging.
“Enabling our Ohio-based customers to leverage this advancement in our technology is just the first step in this significant achievement,” comments Dave Wessinger, Chief Technology Officer with PointClickCare. “The State of Ohio continues to lead the field in bringing stringent requirements for technology providers and their solution delivery for the betterment of long-term care facilities, their residents, and business processes. We’re extremely pleased to have attained this approval and look forward to extending our Order Management solutions to all customers throughout the US.”
Long-term care facilities using PointClickCare’s eMAR and CPOE without ePrescribing will continue to benefit from features including two-factor authentication (also referred to as positive ID) through RFID, barcode, and mag cards at the point of order entry or medication administration. Telephone/verbal orders sent electronically to the pharmacy will require a wet-ink co-sign on a paper prescription generated at the facility for the prescriber until ePrescribing functionality is available.
