Meditech adds population health tools to Expanse EHR

Meditech has embedded new data and analytics tools from population health management solutions provider into Expanse, its web-based EHR.

From within the Expanse EHR, clinicians will now have access to Expanse Population Health, a population analytics database. Expanse Population Health embeds data elements — such as information from non-Meditech EHRs and medical claims — and analytical insights — such as risk scores, attribution and gaps in care — from into care management workflows.

The companies' goal for the integration is to provide clinicians with population health insights that support the transition to value-based care reimbursement models.

"Expanse Population Health provides an opportunity to create a comprehensive, data-driven experience for those members of healthcare delivery organizations tasked with understanding trends and challenges within their patient populations," Scott Godbout, manager of population health at Meditech, said in a news release.
