  • Document faster through voice recognition, branching logic, quick text, and other intuitive features.
  • Easily review, sign, and place orders, just like an online shopping cart.
  • Get notified at the first sign of trouble and take action sooner, with predictive analytics and alerts embedded in the physician and care team workflows.

"With the implementation of [MEDITECH] ED, we gained direct links to patient histories, rapid trending of lab data, embedded voice recognition options in the record from any device, intuitive data entry points, and narrative formatting of the record for excellent readability. By making an EHR more intuitive and workflow friendly, patients get their care faster."

Smooth transfer of documentation and orders upon admission to an acute bed

"OK, MEDITECH." Make my life easier.

The most intuitive EHR for physicians just got easier. Now physicians can promptly find what they’re looking for in their EHR simply by asking. Powered by the same advanced AI you use on your personal devices, Expanse Virtual Assistant works just like you’d expect it to — lowering your cognitive load and allowing you to focus on your patients, not your devices.

Improve the patient experience.

An EHR that brings all patient information to the forefront improves the experience of patients as well as providers. Don't turn your back on patients; document alongside them so they can better understand their conditions and treatments. See how MEDITECH's ED is already making a difference at Firelands Regional Medical Center.

Make care coordination easier, automatically.

Prepare for discharge — the minute your patient steps into the ED. With Expanse, information recorded throughout the patient's ED visit automatically populates their multidisciplinary discharge plan — shared by physicians, nurses, and other clinicians. That means all appropriate orders, referrals, and instructions are in place before a patient's transition to the next level of care.

Visit, discharge, and educational materials are automatically accessible via patient portals, while documentation is pushed out to connected network care providers for easy follow-ups. Practices using MEDITECH also receive notification of their patients' ED visits through event-driven registries, so they can schedule timely follow up visits.
