MEDITECH’s “by physicians, for physicians” approach to our EHR isn’t just talk — the physician user experience is paramount to us. Our collaborations help to infuse physician-driven concepts and perspectives into every aspect of the MEDITECH EHR. As a result, we’re helping providers to deliver safer, more efficient care in today’s value-based purchasing environment.
Here are some of the results we recently showcased to our forum attendees.
6.x Customer Successes
- Click Reductions: Physicians at Kootenai Health (Coeur d’Alene, ID) like the ability to link home meds with the inpatient med list, and they especially like the option of reverting back to the patient’s home meds upon discharge via the Resume Home Meds button.
- Streamlined Documentation: Hancock Regional Hospital (Greenfield, IN) is leveraging nursing data to reduce physician documentation time. Providers can choose from voice recognition or point-and-click.
- Patient Safety: A 100 percent CPOE usage rate at Beaufort Memorial Hospital (Beaufort, SC) means their 160 physicians always have clinical decision support when ordering medications.

The Lake of the Woods District Hospital is happy with their new Meditech system. The software keeps electronic medical records for patients.
Patty Tittlemier and Donna Burkart gave a presentation to the board, about the system at their last board meeting. They both agreed that while there is a steep learning curve, many of the staff are happy with the change.
Meditech was introduced into the hospital back in 2013. Since then, staff have been trained — and they’re continuing to be trained — on using the system. Meditech keeps all of a patient’s medical records together in one file. Nurses or doctors can access that file and see their previous history.
