According to yesterday’s PRNewswire –

MEDITECH, a leading Enterprise Health Record (EHR) vendor, is formally announcing its next-generation platform,¬†MEDITECH Expanse. The web-based platform marks a major step in the company’s mission of empowering healthcare organizations to extend their reach and connect patient care across the continuum.

Designed for the post-Meaningful Use era, Expanse helps providers to see healthcare through a new lens. The web-based EHR navigates healthcare’s wide-open, virtual landscape with clarity and confidence, spanning every care setting, and providing a full view of the patient’s story. Expanse breaks down the walls erected by ‘desktop medicine,’ and presents users with an open, intuitive workspace that prioritizes user satisfaction and productivity. With less time spent on their EHR, physicians can look forward to having more time and energy to focus on patients.

“With Expanse, we identified the need for an EHR for the post-Meaningful Use healthcare paradigm,” said¬†Howard Messing, MEDITECH President & CEO. “Our clinicians deserve an open, dynamic workspace that allows them to connect care the way that works best for them and their patients. We don’t believe this is something that should be exclusive, or come at an exorbitant cost. This is the future. This is the freedom and usability that everyone in healthcare should be accustomed to.”
