Good Samaritan Society Wins Award for MEDITECH 6.1 Implementation Project


Congratulations to The Good Samaritan Society (GSS) on receiving the Project Team Implementation Award from health IT industry leaders, following their recent go-LIVE of MEDITECH’s 6.1 financial solutions

The award—which was presented at the Canadian Health Informatics Awards Gala—recognizes a healthcare organization which, by collaborating with its information technology partners, has successfully implemented a sustainable health IT solution. Working in collaboration with MEDITECH and Healthtech Consultants, GSS’ best practices led to rapid 100 percent user adoption throughout its 30 locations within British Columbia and Alberta. GSS provides complex and long term care, assisted living, and other specialized healthcare services for the elderly and the physically and mentally challenged. 

The award also highlights project complexity. GSS has over 4,500 staff who run 54 sites and programs combined, work in multiple roles in the same work shift, and are spread across multiple facilities in two provinces and multiple time zones.

The organization selected MEDITECH’s 6.1 platform for the strength of its integration along with its ability to optimize workflow and improve reporting—key objectives for replacing its existing best-of-breed applications. By doing so, the organization also laid the foundation for the next phase of the system to include MEDITECH’s Data Repository, Executive Support System, and Business & Clinical Analytics tools, which will enable GSS to reach its reporting goals and provide long term sustainability.
