WESTWOOD, Mass., Oct. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hays Medical Center (Hays, KS) announced they will continue their partnership with MEDITECH by moving forward with the company's Web Electronic Health Record (EHR). MEDITECH's EHR will support the private, not-for-profit 207-bed community hospital in providing the best care for patients across their region.
"A strong partnership, in addition to robust interoperability and system-wide integration, was what we wanted from an EHR and partner — and we have that with MEDITECH," John Jeter, MD, president and CEO at HaysMed said. "MEDITECH's exceptional customer support was another driving factor that led to our decision to move forward with the Web EHR."
A MEDITECH client since 2003, HaysMed will start their Web Ambulatory and Acute implementation in December 2016. Designed by physicians for physicians, the new web platform accelerates care delivery with a complete web chart, giving physicians instant access to all patient records across the continuum.
According to Dr. Jeter, once physicians at HaysMed saw the Web EHR in action, they were impressed by the minute by minute updates on patients, smooth transitions of care, streamlined workflows, and the ability to access the platform on multiple smart devices.
"The sleek look-and-feel and ease of use attracted us to MEDITECH's Web EHR," Dr. Jeter said. "As an ED physician myself, I understand the importance of an EHR tool that is intuitive, efficient, and supports daily tasks such as entering orders or documenting patient visits. I believe MEDITECH's EHR hits the mark in terms of fostering quality patient care delivery and matching physicians' workflows."
MEDITECH's commitment to shaping and driving interoperability initiatives was another key reason HaysMed made the decision to continue its partnership with MEDITECH. As a member of the CommonWell Health Alliance, HL7 FHIR Argonaut Project, and participation in numerous national organizations, MEDITECH is ensuring its customers can safely and securely exchange patient data across care settings, local HIE exchanges, and federal and local health agencies.
"We're pleased to continue our relationship with HaysMed and to be their partner in delivering quality patient care," Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MEDITECH, Helen Waters said. "HaysMed represents the next generation of progressive, EHR consumers leveraging our clinically-integrated Web EHR to elevate physician productivity and enhance the patient experience."
