Your platform for true interoperability.

Healthcare today demands an EHR that’s much more than a repository of data, but instead operates as a data platform — collecting, integrating, managing, analyzing, and presenting data in meaningful and actionable ways. This includes data from both inside and outside of your organization. MEDITECH Expanse is a powerful and scalable platform for healthcare organizations of all sizes, and MEDITECH Traverse is our robust interoperability toolset for securely connecting it to the world of data around you — whether that’s a facility across town, your state or regional HIE, or a national data exchange.

Whole-patient care: See the big picture.

Your clinicians need the right data at the right time to make the best decisions for your patients. That means bringing in care data from outside of your organization to get a fuller picture of your patients’ health. It also means delivering that data to clinicians when, where, and how they need it — within existing workflows, at the point of care, in intuitive and actionable ways.

See the big picture with Traverse, and provide whole-patient care.

Drive transformational change

Interoperability takes care to the next level, breaking down silos and making data more accessible to patients and providers. MEDITECH’s approach to interoperability produces:

Better Clinical Outcomes

When clinicians have access to comprehensive, real-time patient data, they can make better decisions, resulting in better patient outcomes.

Medication icon

More Empowered Patients

Patients want — and need — access to their medical data. A patient who is informed about and engaged in their medical care is more likely to adhere to treatment recommendations, including medication regimes.

Increased Operational Efficiencies

Interoperability enables innovative technologies that can reduce bottlenecks and facilitate automation.

Traverse’s robust suite of interoperability tools includes:

  • Bi-directional exchange via CommonWell Health Alliance® for sharing member records with all major EHR vendors

  • Powerful interfaces for submitting and receiving orders and results to/from labs and other systems, with automated results notifications

  • External connectors for secure EHR-to-EHR data sharing from Expanse to other EHRs, with context-aware functionality that eliminates the need to sign on again or re-identify patients.

Apps — the next frontier

Ever since we launched Expanse, we’ve been on a mission to make EHRs easy and enjoyable to use and we’ve received some of the highest marks possible for usability and clinician satisfaction.

Now we’re raising the bar again, opening Expanse to a growing family of trusted organizations and software developers who are building innovative solutions that securely connect to data in Expanse. They’re testing their apps in our Greenfield Workspace environment, where they can execute APIs and test their applications against a real MEDITECH EHR. And they’re joining the MEDITECH Alliance, an expanding ecosystem of partner organizations with proven, successful, and interoperable solutions.

Two leaders combine forces

MEDITECH and Google Health are piloting powerful new search and summarization capabilities inside the Expanse EHR to reduce cognitive overload and help clinicians efficiently access the information they need to make the most informed decisions.

By embedding Google’s powerful AI, Natural Language Model and search capabilities into Expanse, clinicians can surface data from legacy platforms, other health systems, labs, specialty care settings, and a variety of additional sources. Search results include concepts, not just word matches, along with abbreviations, medical jargon, even misspellings and related concepts. It scours unstructured data, scanned documents and handwritten notes — sorting, summarizing, and ranking results by relevance for quick review. That’s the power of search and summarization by MEDITECH and Google Health.

        Traverse Exchange Canada bridges communication across communities.

        Traverse Exchange Canada is a first-of-its-kind cloud-based interoperability network that enables the free flow of health information between multiple participating organizations, including other EHRs that comply with interoperability standards. Our subscription-based software-as-a-service solution provides clinicians with a more holistic view of their patients' care.

        • Cloud-based technology seamlessly connects participating organizations to each other and to Ontario Health using MEDITECH's record locator system.
        • Once patients opt in, providers receive a comprehensive picture of their record directly within the MEDITECH EHR — regardless of where care was provided.
        • Data is located beyond hospital walls, across jurisdictional or federal systems from a variety of sources.
        • Data can be viewed or consumed within the EHR as discrete data.

        “Putting the right information in the hands of the people who need it is what interoperability is all about. With Traverse Exchange Canada, we will be able to access external records from acute care, primary care, long term care, and other settings to create a more intelligent patient picture that is relevant to the care journey and pertinent to the moment. This kind of intelligent interoperability will improve patient outcomes and lays the foundation for delivering personalized care to our community.”
