WESTWOOD, Mass., Jan. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Entering into 2018, MEDITECH proudly reflects on the success the company and its customers have had over the past year, the momentum our Web Enterprise Health Record (EHR) has brought to the industry, and the company's passion to continue to push the boundaries of what an EHR experience should be.
The market is openly expressing exasperation with technology and clamors for a more contemporary solution. The industry continues to witness key factors driving EHR decisions — such as physician burnout, loss of provider productivity, and unsatisfactory patient experience. MEDITECH is committed to providing a better user experience while also delivering more sophisticated capabilities and unparalleled integration across the continuum, accompanied by a sustainable cost model.
The MEDITECH Web EHR is gaining momentum and represents a major pivot for the company and the industry as a whole. In 2017, 58 customers went LIVE with the MEDITECH Web EHR across diverse specialties. MEDITECH created the industry's first post-Meaningful Use EHR — built for today's market and customer — and its customers are leading the digital transformation of today and beyond.
