June 2, 2014

Bloomington, MN – MatrixCare®, the industry leading EHR for long-term care and senior living providers, has achieved certification of integration with Omincare using the NCPDP 10.6 standard. This integration will help MatrixCare clients reduce medication errors and increase the efficiency of their order management processes. In addition, it prepares providers for future regulations that may require ePrescribing.

MatrixCare President and CEO John Damgaard commented, "Pharmacy integration is another example of our commitment to interoperability between the industry-leading MatrixCare EHR platform and other key systems used by our clients. With Omnicare certification, and the corresponding integration with MatrixCare, we can give providers a foundation for true closed-loop medication management, dramatically improving operational efficiencies and reducing medication errors. Such innovations are exactly what LTPAC providers will need to leverage to ensure their profitable participation in Accountable Care Organizations."

Pharmacy integration streamlines the ordering and medication administration processes, saving time for nursing staff resulting in more time spent caring for residents. MatrixCare staff has many years of pharmacy experience that resulted in building a superior ePrescribing solution for providers.
