Fraser Health Authority’s Eagle Ridge Hospital goes LIVE with MEDITECH Expanse
Eagle Ridge Hospital became the first of Fraser Health Authority’s twelve hospitals to go LIVE with MEDITECH Expanse on April 15.
The implementation of Expanse is part of the Advance Program at Fraser, a clinical transformation that is taking place across the organization. The program focuses on leveraging technology and innovation to continuously improve the quality, consistency, and safety of the patient care provided.
In a recent video, the team at Fraser Health explained the goals of their Advance program and the role Expanse plays in achieving those goals.
“At the heart of Advance is the replacement of our current clinical information system with MEDITECH Expanse,” said Laurie Leith, Fraser's Vice President of Regional Hospitals and Health Services.
Fraser Health Authority is responsible for delivering hospital and community-based health services to over 1.9 million people and is the largest of the five regional health authorities in British Columbia, Canada. Eagle Ridge Hospital provides acute care and specialty services; including 24/7 emergency, general medicine, rehab, and surgery.
