MEDITECH’s 6.1 EHR Comes in First for Ireland and the Galway Clinic
Back in 2004, Galway Clinic (Galway City, Ireland) was the first independently funded hospital to be opened in Ireland in twenty years. A decade later, the progressive 146-bed community hospital became the first in Ireland to achieve HIMSS Stage 6 for their outstanding EMR adoption.
Now Galway is ahead of the curve once again, as MEDITECH’s first 6.1 EHR customer in Europe.
“We found MEDITECH’s 6.1 platform to be the right fit for our organization. With its improved capabilities and user adoption, it will allow us to deliver improved workflows for our current and future clinical demands," says Raphael Jaffrezic, CIO.
"MEDITECH is one of the only EHR vendors we found that is truly integrated, and we believe a complete patient electronic record enables our clinicians to deliver safer patient care. Our vision is to include patients in their own care by providing them access to their records from anywhere, and MEDITECH’s Patient Portal product will play a key role in making that happen."
