Use MEDITECH’s EHR to serve all of your patients’ needs, across their lifespans.

MEDITECH Expanse reaches across the entire care continuum, enabling clinicians to care for all patients, even as their needs change throughout the course of their lives. And it’s all a singular EHR—one problem list, one allergy list, one medication file, all on one record. Here’s a breakdown of how MEDITECH helps patients spanning the risk spectrum.

How MEDITECH helps

The Well

When it comes to patient engagement, convenience is key. With easy access to records and appointments, MEDITECH’s Patient and Consumer Health Portal encourages patients to participate in their own care, allowing for early intervention and long-term wellness.

The At-Risk

Actionable Patient Registries support preventive care by identifying risk factors such as rising blood pressure or body mass index, while Ambulatory and Patient and Consumer Health Portal can help providers to engage patients, to slow or reverse disease progression.

The Chronically Ill

MEDITECH’s Patient and Consumer Health Portal, Post-Acute, Home Care, and Telehealth solutions focus on active disease management strategies, while chronic care management registries let you drill down into the patient’s chart to renew scripts, document, and more.

The Critically Ill

Bring effective care to patients with critical illnesses via Acute, Home Care, Telehealth, Video Visits, Remote Monitoring, and Hospice solutions that reinforce safe, quality care with built-in clinical decision support.

Address Social Determinants of Health.

Deliver care that reaches far beyond the hospital and physician’s office. Connect patients with social services and community resources, and use Expanse to help them take better control over their own health.

Aggregated data to help you see the complete picture.

MEDITECH is collaborating with Arcadia Healthcare Solutions to add aggregated data into our Ambulatory and BCA solutions, for a more complete patient record and improved population health management. See and use information from across the continuum (including claims and other-vendor EHR data) to get a better understanding of patient risks and utilization.

Strength in numbers.

Analytics play a crucial role in population health, allowing care organizations to identify operational, clinical, and financial trends, as well as changes in readmission rates, chronic disease prevalence across patient populations, and much more. MEDITECH’s single-platform Business and Clinical Analytics solution houses a wide variety of web-based executive dashboards that allow you to visualize data and determine trends, leading to more informed decisions and a better understanding of your organization’s patient populations.

Revenue Cycle Reimbursement.

As reimbursement models shift from fee-for-service to fee-for-value, more organizations are looking to drive improvement within the revenue cycle. MEDITECH’s Revenue Cycle solution ensures that the appropriate information is captured at the front end, copays and deductibles are collected at the point of service, charges are captured automatically, claims are accurate upon submission, and collection streams are automated. And it’s all part of the bigger billing picture.

  • Optimize reimbursement and revenue opportunities
  • Reduce revenue leakage
  • Drive maximum (and timely) reimbursement
  • Achieve financial coordination through end-to-end integration
 

Interoperability leads to seamless, coordinated care.

True interoperability connects communities and enables better population health strategies by allowing for the sharing of data across all systems. As a Contributor Member of the CommonWell Health Alliance, MEDITECH is committed to technology that will give you the full patient story - so you can always treat the person and not just the problem.
