WESTWOOD, Mass., Feb. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The buzz surrounding MEDITECH and the company's intuitive Web Enterprise Health Record (EHR) showed no signs of slowing down as 2017 came to a close. Continuing on the powerful path for high-quality care and positive patient outcomes, MEDITECH signed 92 healthcare organizations, 47 of which were new customers, to implement the Web EHR.
"MEDITECH had a fantastic 2017 -- we showed tremendous growth in the fourth quarter, and we see this momentum carrying over into 2018," Helen Waters, executive vice president at MEDITECH, said.

Our overall growth validates our passionate new vision for healthcare, and I'm confident MEDITECH will continue to lead the way for a bright and successful 2018."
