  • "Our relationship with Humber provided us the foundation to build an EHR that would take our organization to the next level. By acquiring the Expanse technology, we are also now able to improve our care coordination and internal processes, as well as work more closely with Humber for the betterment of the community."

  • "Even though the content of the Electronic Health Record is sometimes in English – for continuity of care with our community partners – offering our patients a French interface was non-negotiable. By collaborating with MEDITECH, we were able to make this option available."

  • "One way we're leveraging Expanse to assist us in some of our health equity work is that we recently turned on the feature for pronouns. And that means that the individual's pronouns are right there in the health record for the clinician to see and that person doesn't have to explain their gender identity, every time. That's a great example of when you change something in the system it's just changed for life, the patient doesn't have to keep coming back and telling you over and over again."

  • "As a longtime customer, we've experienced the many benefits of utilizing MEDITECH's EHR. These benefits don't only cover patient care but they span across the whole organization. We're fortunate to have wisely invested in a solution that's been sustainable for the last two decades and that we foresee will continue to be well into the future."

  • “We just had a patient see a poster about the portal, and download the app while he was in the waiting room. Before leaving his appointment he logged into the portal and discovered that he could access his lab results from his phone. He said this was going to have a significant impact on his ability to manage his own care. These are the types of stories we are hearing every day.”
