8/12/2008

TAMPA, Fla. The drug information company Informed Decisions and the healthcare organization Metcare of Florida, a wholly owned subsidiary of Metropolitan Health Networks, have entered into an agreement to deploy eMPOWERx, Informed Decisions’ electronic prescribing and patient care system, to physicians in Metcare’s provider services network.

Under the agreement, participating physicians will utilize eMPOWERx for eprescribing, as well as to access integrated drug information, drug-drug interaction screening tools and real-time patient medication histories. Physicians will have point-of-care access by using wireless tablet computers to connect to the secure eMPOWERx website.

“By deploying eMPOWERx, Metcare is providing its physicians with more than just e-prescribing capabilities. It is arming them with clinical decision support tools and an unprecedented depth of drug information that will result in more informed care decisions, better coordination of care, reduced costs, and improved health outcomes,” said Kathy Mosbaugh, executive vice president, Informed Decisions.
