CloudWave Partners with MEDITECH International to Deliver Expanse EPR Services for More than Half a Million Patients Across the UK

Cloud-Based Solution Enables a Scalable and Secure Way for Hospitals to Access Electronic Patient Records

CloudWave, the expert in healthcare data security, announced that MEDITECH UK has chosen CloudWave’s OpSus Cloud Services to power its MEDITECH Expanse EPR (Electronic Patient Record) and MEDITECH Cloud Hosted offering to East Cheshire NHS Trust and Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The United Kingdom public-sector trusts are part of the National Health Service (NHS). They will be working with CloudWave and MEDITECH to deploy a cloud-based electronic health record (EHR) solution customized for a population of more than 550,000 patients across the UK.

MEDITECH and CloudWave’s collaborative design for an international MEDITECH Cloud Hosted EPR system provides a cost-effective and scalable way for hospitals to access the Expanse EPR. This partnership will enable East and Mid Cheshire to deliver the MEDITECH Expanse EPR leveraging trusted resources in the public cloud, backed with the delivery expertise, security, management, and depth of support from CloudWave.

“MEDITECH strives to help healthcare organizations around the world expand their vision of what’s possible—and ultimately change the way healthcare is delivered,” said Charlotte Jackson, CEO of MEDITECH International. “The cloud offers new ways for healthcare providers to communicate and collaborate anywhere in the world and is key to supporting optimized care delivery to serve the needs of patients and providers. MEDITECH UK chose CloudWave to help deliver Expanse to East and Mid Cheshire because of their expertise in designing, deploying, and supporting secure, mission-critical cloud workloads within public cloud environments, and we are building upon a partnership that has delivered many successful technical and business collaborations to date.”
