The interface is done through a Quovadx (Irving, Texas) Cloverleaf engine, while admissions, discharges, transfers and pharmacy encoded orders are passed from MEDITECH via an HL7 interface and are sent wirelessly to IntelliDOT handhelds carried by nurses. Medication administration is completed by nurses at bedside, which is then documented on the electronic medication administration record (eMAR). Halifax is currently using the IntelliDOT eMAR as part of its full patient documentation, according to the company.
Halifax Regional Medical Center, a 206-bed hospital in Roanoke Rapids, N.C., has implemented IntelliDOT’s (San Diego, Calif.) Bedside Medication Administration and integrated it with the hospital’s existing Meditech (Westwood, Mass.) information system.
