Rothman Orthopaedic Excited for Growth with MEDITECH’s 6.1 EHR
MEDITECH customer Rothman Orthopaedic Specialty Hospital (Bensalem, PA) will upgrade their 24-bed surgery center to the 6.1 EHR. As a world leader in orthopaedics, Rothman is ready for a big enhancement to their Surgical Services solution, which will help their organization harness patient data to make better, more cost-effective decisions for their business.
“The business model here is focused on patient care. And the best way to provide that is with seamless integration and streamlined care transitions,” says Ed Witchey, Director of Health Information Systems. “Our surgeons work in four departments, and with MEDITECH’s 6.1 EHR they will have a completely integrated surgical system to help them continue to transform the patient care experience.”
Regarded as leaders in their respected specialty fields, Rothman surgeons use evidence-based practices to improve patient outcomes and contain costs with the use of technology like MEDITECH’s EHR.
What’s more, the highly reputable surgical hospital is making big waves in the industry:
- Kelly Doyle, CEO recognized by the Philadelphia Business Journal as one of Philadelphia’s Most Admired CEOs of 2015
- Named best hospital for Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) (#1 out of 3,055 hospitals)
- Rated a 5-star hospital by Healthgrades
- Named one of America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Joint Replacement by Healthgrades for the fourth year in a row in 2016.
“We’re a small but very talented and specialized surgical hospital, so the resources are different,” says Kelly Doyle, CEO. “We want to make sure that we’re providing top of the line patient care with efficiency and in the most cost-effective manner. MEDITECH’s 6.1 EHR will allow us to do that.”
