Hays Medical Center upgrades to MEDITECH's web-based EHR

Hays (Kan.) Medical Center strengthened its partnership with MEDITECH by upgrading to the company's Web Electronic Health Record.

HaysMed, a nonprofit, 207-bed community hospital, has been a MEDITECH client since 2003. It will begin its Web Ambulatory and Acute implementation in December. Through the new web-based EHR, HaysMed physicians will better have instant access to all patient records.

"A strong partnership, in addition to robust interoperability and systemwide integration, what we wanted from an EHR and partner — and we have that with MEDITECH," said HaysMed President and CEO John Jeter, MD. "MEDITECH's exceptional customer support was another driving factor that led to our decision to move forward with the Web EHR."
