Pioneers Medical Center will be using MEDITECH Expanse as our web-based Electronic Heath Record (EHR). This fully mobile, web-based EHR solution allows our healthcare professionals to provide a more comprehensive view of your medical history that can be accessed by any of our other doctors, nurses and clinicians. Since this platform is cloud-based, our team can access your patient records, place orders and document your care at any time, from any location, on any device. MEDITECH Expanse allows PMC to elevate the quality of care we provide while providing a better patient experience.
What Is an Electronic Health Record (EHR) System?
An Electronic Health Record (EHR) system provides a platform where your medical history can be stored digitally by your healthcare provider. It ensures that your physician is always kept up to date with your medical history, recent conditions and test results, regardless of where you last received care.
MEDITECH is the most commonly used EHR among rural, critical access hospitals. Their system allows for better tracking of your health progress with the help of virtual visits and remote monitoring.
MEDITECH is widely regarded as the industry leader in EHR technology:
85% of MEDITECH sites have been with the EHR company for over a decade
MEDITECH maintains 17% of the hospital EHR market share
Clinicians ranked their satisfaction with MEDITECH’s personalization abilities 8.4 on a 0 to 9 scale, higher than any other vendor
87% of small community hospitals are satisfied or very satisfied with MEDITECH’s EHR platform
MEDITECH was named the number 1 acute care EMR, patient accounting and patient management platform for community hospitals
In addition, the global healthcare research firm KLAS ranked MEDITECH Best in “Klas” for Acute Care EHRs for nine consecutive years.
How Does Our Adoption of MEDITECH Expanse Benefit Our Patients?
Simply put, MEDITECH provides a better patient experience. You’ll receive a variety of benefits from our adoption of the MEDITECH Expanse EHR platform:
Early Detection – Your doctors will be able to identify subtle changes in your condition and take action before these issues become more serious and difficult to manage.
Improved Patient Safety – You’ll have one medication record, one allergy record and one EHR across all care settings. This ensures all care providers have accurate, up-to-date information. In addition, all care team members will receive real-time notifications alerting them to potential drug and allergy interactions prior to prescribing or administering medication.
Improved Monitoring – Your physicians can more effectively manage your health and monitor chronic conditions through remote monitoring technologies, online questionnaires and virtual visits.
Improved Access to Care – Virtual visits provide you with the ability to connect with our doctors from the comfort and convenience of your home. This allows you access to care even when your work schedule, lack of transportation or reduced mobility makes it challenging to visit us in person.
Improved Access to Your Information – The MEDITECH Expanse patient portal and MHealth app give you secure access to your health information whenever you need it. Easily view new test results, review discharge instructions and keep in touch with our doctors from your computer or mobile device.
Secure and Easy Data Sharing – The MHealth app makes it easy for you to share health data with our care team and bring family members or health proxies up to date with your care plan.
Easier to Manage Your Care – You can use the patient portal to schedule appointments and refill prescriptions, making it easier to take control of your healthcare needs.
Improved Patient Appointments – Your healthcare team won’t ever need to spend time hunting down medical records, allowing them to spend more time discussing your care with you during your appointments.
