PatientKeeper Enhances CPOE Offering with Electronic Interface to MEDITECH's Pharmacy Application
Physicians’ inpatient medication orders are now entered directly into MEDITECH PHA for pharmacy verification and fulfillment
WALTHAM, Mass. – May 27, 2015 – PatientKeeper®, Inc., a leading provider of healthcare applications for physicians, today announced the availability of an electronic interface between its PatientKeeper CPOE™ application and the MEDITECH™ Pharmacy (PHA) application. The interface enables physicians’ medication orders to be entered directly into MEDITECH PHA for pharmacist verification and fulfillment.
PatientKeeper’s PHA interface is live at hospitals in Idaho, Oregon and South Carolina and will be implemented at others shortly.
In parallel with the entry of orders into PHA, PatientKeeper CPOE sends an electronic PDF to the pharmacists’ document queue that provides the pharmacy orders in the full context of the orders that the physician is making. This allows the pharmacist to get a holistic view of each patient’s treatment plan. The PDF also serves as a level of redundancy in case there is a problem with the interface. It highlights any medication orders that were not able to be interfaced to reduce the possibility of an order delay.
