MEDITECH Nursing

Nurses: be the efficiency experts of safe, patient-centered care.

You know what your patients need. We can help you get it done. Manage interventions, monitor risks, meet growing regulatory demands, engage patients, and coordinate care with enterprise-wide nursing solutions for every specialty. MEDITECH’s Web EHR gives you the tools to do more, safely. 

'One Source of Truth' improves safety and saves time.

Video Covershot

One record, one MAR, one problem list, across multiple care settings. Hear how MEDITECH’s integrated EHR puts safety front and center.

Confidence behind every decision.

Use our evidence-based care plans to establish best practices, link to an online library of clinical evidence, and more.

  • Give patients research-based discharge instructions and educational content
  • Be notified of out-of-range values, unsafe medication and transfusion administrations, and at-risk conditions
  • Launch into MCG CareWebQI/Indicia to review evidence-based content and evaluate clinical indications for level of care determinations

Documentation that minimizes distraction.

Don’t let documentation get between you and your patients. Our integrated approach recalls assessments, vital signs, and more, as patients transition between care settings. You get the full patient story without the repetition — or the risk.

Spend less time documenting, with:

  • Standard point-and-click templates
  • Embedded shortcuts
  • Monitor integration
  • Image annotation

Web Point-of-Care Software

Web Point-of-Care Software (in development) complements the mobile capabilities of our Patient Care System by enabling clinicians to conveniently review patient lists and document care from smartphones using modern web browsers. This new web-based software provides nurses, LPNs, aides, and other care providers with an additional tool for performing tasks such as quick medication verification and care intervention documentation.

The following slides provide an overview of some of the functionality we are actively developing, which will enable you to:

Worklists

  • View a full list of currently assigned patients, as well as a summary of interventions and administrations
  • Receive icon-based notifications of new information and tasks
  • Identify patients through barcoded wristbands
  • Sort worklists by name, room and bed, or next action to prioritize workloads
  • Receive real-time updates of patient information
  • Access the patient’s chart from the worklist

Patient Data and Chart Views

Web Point-of-Care Software enables clinicians to view recent patient data or launch into patient charts to view additional historical data. Data includes but is not limited to:

  • Current and historical interventions
  • Detailed allergies
  • Clinical data
  • Care providers
  • Recent orders and results
  • Queries
  • Problem lists
  • DNR statuses
  • Additional user-defined data

Interventions

Clinicians have immediate access to documentation capabilities on their point-of-care devices, including the ability to:

  • Add, document, and edit interventions and assessments
  • Receive immediate notification of due and overdue interventions
  • Modify intervention frequency, occurrence, and time
  • Recall data on assessments
  • Initiate rules-based logic

Medication Administration

Medication Administration Record (MAR) and Bedside Verification components support the native barcode scanner on select devices. Clinicians can:

  • Access a medication worklist with icon-based indicators, such as due and overdue administrations
  • Scan, acknowledge, review, administer, and co-sign medications
  • Document medication assessments and reassessments
  • View and override medication conflicts and renewal warnings
  • Review additional medication details
  • Display the protocol and taper schedule

Meet regulations within your workflow.

We’re excited that nurses can go into an assessment and see the vital signs that were uploaded from the monitor, rather than have to document them into the system.

Nursing Information Systems Analyst, University of Maryland School of Nursing

Staff can see that the patient has been here before. They can see the patient’s allergies and home meds, which streamlines their processes. They love it!
