MEDITECH’s alignment of EHR solutions with market needs is driving new sales and competitive migrations
WESTWOOD, Mass., May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Excitement for MEDITECH‘s contemporary and clinically-integrated Web Electronic Health Record (EHR) continues to grow. The company’s decision to build an integrated Ambulatory solution to complement its Acute, Emergency Department, Long Term Care, and Home Care solutions is sparking interest across the industry. MEDITECH has seen strong growth in new customer bookings over the past several quarters, and in Q1 2017, the company signed five new healthcare organizations, representing 16 new hospitals.
MEDITECH’s innovative, physician-designed Web EHR represents a major pivot for the company and the industry as a whole. Since its launch, over 130 healthcare organizations have signed for MEDITECH’s latest release.
“MEDITECH has 47 years of experience in the healthcare industry, and we’re deeply passionate and committed to delivering solutions that give physicians the tools they need to deliver the highest quality of care to their patients,” Helen Waters, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing said. “We have channeled our experience, passion, and knowledge into building the next-generation EHR. The architecture, user interface, and depth of clinical sophistication have been taken to entirely new levels, and we are witnessing the excitement across the market.”
New and existing MEDITECH clients are excited about the latest platform, citing its design, usability, integration, mobility, and cost as major deciding factors during their EHR product and vendor evaluation.
Some of MEDITECH’s recent Web EHR signings include:
Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) (Lexington, Ky.)
After launching a complete evaluation of EHR solutions, ARH announced they will begin a partnership with MEDITECH. The large, not-for-profit, integrated delivery network that includes 11 hospitals, will begin their shift to MEDITECH’s transformative, mobile Web EHR later this year.
“We are excited to partner with MEDITECH in providing ARH an innovative Web EHR that fosters and supports sustainability,” Appalachian Regional Healthcare’s President and CEO, Joe Grossman said. “With the Web EHR, our clinicians will have seamless integration across the continuum, improved productivity, and the sophisticated tools to improve the quality and safety of care delivered to our communities.”
Southlake Regional Health Centre and Stevenson Memorial Hospital (Ontario, Canada)
As members of the Shared Health Information Network Exchange (SHINE) initiative, Southlake Regional Health Centre and Stevenson Memorial Hospital announced a new partnership with Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) to integrate their Health Information System (HIS) and accelerate the adoption of MEDITECH’s 6.1 Web EHR across all three organizations.
“MEDITECH brings a wealth of experience that helps solidify all three organizations through the same EHR platform,” President and CEO of Stevenson Memorial Hospital, Jody Levac said. “This particular project allows us to address the disparities that occur in small to rural hospitals. Many of our patients can’t access specialists or consultants. A single EHR across the three institutions allows our patients to get access to high-quality care that could never be possible without this type of partnership.”
Howard County Medical Center (HCMC) (St. Paul, Neb.)
The Critical Access Hospital will be upgrading to MEDITECH’s Web EHR. A MEDITECH customer since 2011, physicians at HCMC were impressed with the new platform’s ease of use and integration.
“We value our physicians’ opinions, and they played a significant role in the decision to move forward with MEDITECH’s Web EHR. Having access to data from anywhere in the medical center and on any smart device is really what caught everyone’s attention,” Arlan Johnson, CEO at HCMC said.
