AHIMA Teams with MEDITECH to Educate Medical Students


MEDITECH’s Web EHR will be used to help train future medical professionals as part of a collaboration with the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) and Sisu Healthcare IT Solutions.

Students of AHIMA's Virtual Lab (VLab) will be using the MEDITECH system to train and test their skills in a secure manner—thus preparing them for future work in the health information management field without putting real patient data at risk.

“MEDITECH is proud to partner with AHIMA and Sisu to integrate the MEDITECH EHR within AHIMA’s VLab program,” says Melissa Swanfeldt, MEDITECH associate vice president, in a recent press release. “By having first-hand experience with the MEDITECH EHR, students are provided a valuable opportunity to experience the impact EHRs have in improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of patient care.”
