Anderson Regional Medical Center Cites READY, Unmatched Integration History as Reasons for Moving to 6.1


A customer for over 18 years, Anderson Regional Medical Center (Meridian, MS) recently went LIVE with MEDITECH’s 6.1 platform. According to Steve Taylor, CIO at Anderson Regional, it was the READY implementation plan, along with MEDITECH’s solid integration history, that made all the difference.

“We’d been a MAGIC customer for 18 years. When MEDITECH introduced the READY program, offering a truly collaborative approach, we really started considering 6.1. Together, we worked through the transformational process to reach our purpose—achieving a fully integrated EHR. I can’t say enough about the READY methodology.”

The 310-bed healthcare system, which provides the area’s first cardiovascular surgery program, a regional cancer center, a level II NICU, and a level III trauma center, is already witnessing increased Case Mix Index (CMI), and other clinical and revenue cycle workflow efficiencies.

“We felt that an integrated system was a must,” says Taylor. “With our MEDITECH 6.1 solution, we are already seeing workflow efficiencies, quality improvements, and improved financial performance reporting.”
