Rich data resource for clinical studies and reports

Easily define and run sophisticated queries on the entire MetaVision patient database. Identify suitable candidates for clinical trials. Extract data for advanced research studies on topics like clinical trends, cost analysis and quality measurements.

MetaVision supports your optimum workflow

We can adapt the solution to reflect the way you work. From drug ingredients to procedure-specific layouts – system configuration is fast and easy. Need to make a change for the whole unit? Just for your workflow? Easily incorporate new processes at any point without additional development, reducing your total cost of ownership.

One continuous record across departments & specialties

Get a single patient record across the continuum of care: ICUs, pre-op units, ORs, recovery units and general floors. One patient, one flow sheet – easily access all the necessary information throughout the entire hospital stay. Data continuity means fewer errors during transfer, smoother handovers, and carrying over of orders from one department to the next.

All the data all the time

Our platform integrates seamlessly with all major Hospital Information Systems (HIS): ADT, Labs, CPOE, drug cabinets, archive, billing, scheduling, PACS, LDAP, coding and more.

We handle integration with MEDITECH®, Cerner®, McKesson® or any other EMR.

We have drivers for over 250 medical devices, with the option of developing additional drivers available upon request.

IMD_CriticalCare_Step 1

Perform rounds

A panoramic overview of all your patients makes rounds faster and more effective. See key multi-patient information at a glance, including vital signs, lab results and reminders for pending medications and tasks. Quickly identify which patients need attention first. Easily document care plans throughout rounds.

IMD_CriticalCare_Step 2

Assess patient condition

MetaVision draws data from medical devices and hospital information systems every minute, and presents it as actionable information. The solution helps assess patient progress by automatically performing calculations such as clinical scores and patient fluid balance.

Easily navigate between individual patient records. Get a complete view of patients’ infections, with data from running lines, antibiotics as well as labs and microbiology results. Powerful decision support tools constantly scan the patient record and send timely notifications of changes in patient status or the need to adhere to protocols.

IMD_CriticalCare_Step 3

Plan care and manage medications

MetaVision offers advanced electronic medication management and supports the documentation of nursing tasks. The system enforces the use of hospital preferred drugs, helping control medication costs. When prescribing, the system simulates the expected impact on the patient, highlighting allergies, out of range medication doses, and other patient safety issues. Reminders are issued for on-time administration of fluid and medications. Nurses and Pharmacy can then easily document the prepared orders in MetaVision. When administering medication, barcode scanning and safety checks ensure that all information is correct.


Share information among caregivers

Easily document observations and shift summaries with dedicated notes, forms and reports that are automatically populated with data from the patient flow sheet. Improve communication with your colleagues via secure messaging and use of the clinician inbox tool. Caregivers from outside the ICU such as physiotherapists, infection management, dieticians, and the pain team can all access records of patients under their care.


Discharge and monitor

Reports are automatically populated with information captured during the patient’s stay. Mandatory fields help enforce completion of data required for reporting, finance or other governmental or regulatory purposes.

Beyond the ICU, MetaVision provides a continuous record for general wards and offers tools for supporting outreach teams in handling high-acuity patients in lower acuity environments. Advanced rule-based alerts help prevent patient deterioration, costly complications and readmission to the ICU.
