Howard County Medical Center Focuses on the Ultimate Patient Experience with MEDITECH’s Web EHR

Howard County Medical Center (HCMC) (St. Paul, Neb.) announced the Critical Access Hospital is 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.

As a small rural hospital with limited resources, upkeep of IT has been challenging. The decision to move to the Web EHR platform directly aligns with HCMC’s overall strategic plan to be fiscally responsible, focus on the ultimate patient experience, expand services, and stay committed to their community.

“The ultimate patient experience is so important to us at HCMC,” Jillyn Klein, COO at HCMC said. “With MEDITECH’s Web EHR, physicians have seamless access to the patient’s data, without requiring the patient to repeatedly share information. We will be able to provide better, more efficient care, leading to higher patient satisfaction, which is our overall goal at HCMC.”

“MEDITECH is pleased to continue our partnership with HCMC, who joins the growing number of progressive healthcare organizations that are leveraging MEDITECH’s Web EHR to increase physicians’ productivity,” Christine Parent, associate vice president of Marketing at MEDITECH said. “We are proud of our track record for being a great steward of the healthcare dollar for our customers and the market as a whole—providing high-quality, high-value solutions that are deep and robust with functionality and sophistication.”
