MEDITECH signs 100th Expanse MaaS customer
37 hospitals selected the MaaS cloud-based subscription model in 2023 for its high value and efficiency in onboarding.
As more community hospitals seek to offer a wealth of complex care services to local patients, the value of MEDITECH as a Service (MaaS) continues to drive its popularity. The platform recently signed its 100th customer through this full-service, cloud-based subscription model.
“The MaaS model is a very desirable option for those organizations looking to deploy a modern, intelligent EHR without the extensive upfront capital or staffing demands of an on-premise solution,” said MEDITECH Vice President Carol Labadini.
“But unlike with other hosted models in the industry, MaaS customers get the same mobile, web-native Expanse solution as everyone else, without breaking their budget or sacrificing their independence to another health system.”
Among these customers is Winnebago Comprehensive Health System(Winnebago, NE), which is part of Indian Health Services. Winnebago’s goal is to lead the nation in health for indigenous people by challenging the healthcare culture for the 10,000 Native American beneficiaries who live on the Winnebago Reservation and in the surrounding 3-state region of Nebraska, Iowa, and South Dakota.
“MEDITECH Expanse offered us the most flexibility to suit our unique needs as a Tribal Healthcare System, along with being price competitive," said Winnebago’s Chief Transformation Officer Austin Schanzenbach. “The list of reasons why we are excited about moving to MEDITECH over our existing EHR would be exhaustive. It will be like moving from a bicycle with a rusty chain, to a well-maintained automobile.”
Another recent MaaS signing was Brant Community Healthcare System(Brantford, ON), MEDITECH’s first MaaS customer in Canada. BCHS is comprised of two sites serving the residents in Brantford, the County of Brant, Six Nations of the Grand River, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and surrounding communities.
“The new subscription model reshaped the way we considered procurement and implementation,” said BCHS’s ICT Director, HIM & CPO Danielle Myers in a recent press release. “By eliminating the expense and human resources required for an on-premise setup, we will free up resources to focus on other projects that will benefit patients and providers. At the same time, we will have all the advantages of a modern HIS.”

“With a technically sophisticated, customizable, and user-friendly EHR, our staff will be able to devote more time to doing what we’re called to do – maximizing the potential of every child,” said Bethany CMO Michael Johnson in an earlier press release.
Labadini said that MaaS reflects MEDITECH’s commitment to removing the financial and staffing resource barriers to implementing a leading EHR platform.
“We want to enable all healthcare organizations - large and small - to take full advantage of the many innovations Expanse offers,” she said. “I expect more exciting things from our MaaS customers in the months ahead.”
