5 things Meditech has done in the past 90 days

Over the past three months, Meditech has forged EHR-based partnerships with several healthcare providers as well as the American Health Information Management Association.

Here are five updates from the Westwood, Mass.-based EHR vendor since August:

1. Meditech completed several EHR go-lives from August through September, deploying new systems at Globe, Ariz.-based Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center; San Luis Valley Health; Portsmouth-based Southern Ohio Medical Center.

2. On Oct. 1, Milford (Mass.) Regional Medical Center went live on an $18 million new Meditech EHR system. The go-live marked the first time the medical center is on a single EHR platform with its hospital and affiliated medical offices since implementing digital patient records in the 1980s.

3. The American Health Information Management Association partnered with Meditech in September on a new initiative to provide EHR digital training for 16,000 students at more than 300 colleges and universities using Meditech's Expanse system. 

4. Meditech announced a new partnership with artificial intelligence developer Nuance on Sept. 9 to launch a voice assistant for clinicians using its Expanse EHR system.

5. Providence Services Group acquired Meditech consulting firm Navin, Haffty & Associates, which was founded in 2001 and collaborated with Meditech to develop the ready EHR implementation model in 2012. Renton, Wash.-based Providence owns Providence Services Group.
