MEDITECH EHR is an on-premise electronic health record (EHR) system that provides clinical charting for health care professionals at midsized and community hospitals.

Providers can view patient vitals, lab results, medication information, health history, patient notes and diagnostic imaging from this secure, HIPAA-compliant system. MEDITECH EHR is also Meaningful Use Stage 2-certified, and offers features that assist administrators in attesting for government stimulus packages.

The clinical panels feature allows physicians and other caregivers to view current patient activity and group selected pieces of information into a single screen. They can also be customized to suit a physician's specialty, such as dietary or respiratory therapy, so that only relevant information is initially shown.

In an effort to increase interoperability with other systems, MEDITECH provides Continuity of Care Documents (CCDs) that include valuable information about a patient’s visit or hospital stay. These can be printed or transmitted electronically and brought with the patient to future visits or appointments with physicians outside of the system.

Supported Operating System(s):
Windows 7 , Windows Vista , Windows XP , Windows 2000 , Windows 8

    I didn’t have a great experience with this program. I had a very hard time learning all of its functions. Based on conversations between myself and coworkers, they weren’t too fond of this program either.

    Pros

    I liked the simplicity of its layout. There wasn't a lot of distracting features that this program presented

    Cons

    Very hard to navigate through the program
    There was a very long learning curve before I was comfortable using this program

    I would think after all these years it would be updated by now.

    Pros

    I dont really have anything good to say about this product. I have used it off and on for 10yrs and I dont think there has been any changes made.

    Cons

    It is very frustrating to have to use the arrow keys only for navigation, if you mistakenly hit the wrong key you have to start all over again.

    This is a very useful software where you can manage all departments in one full suit. You can enter a lab for a patient, or you van open a work order to get a light bulb swapped. just great.

    Cons

    Very Expensive, support is very expensive as well, this platform will keep your data hostage if you discontinue support...

    I have worked with numerous other EHR's and Meditech is by far the worst.

    Cons

    Seriously after 2 years I am have yet to discover any advantage to using this software, even after our hospital rolled out the newest version of Meditech 6.15.No functionality of the system, you have to hunt for the critical information you need, the software is not intuitive for example if you scan a medication that the patient has a documented allergy to the program doesn't pop up a text box or an alert. My biggest complaint is that it does not appear that Meditech consulted with clinicians when building the documentation software. It is extremely troubling and in our litigious society I am not sure how they justify the lack of descriptors.

    Pros

    I love that it combines billing (front and back end) AND clinical documentation. It makes billing and coding, compliance audits and claims review SO much easier than other software.

    Cons

    Since Epic came out, Meditech lacks a lot of features, like insurance verification, faxing charts, etc. Meditech also forces all processes to be entered repetitively, and for those who are strictly clinical or strictly b/ar, it seems tedious.

    Pros

    It seems to have a web interactive feel, and is somewhat user friendly. Customer service is helpful.

    Cons

    The data on the screens could flow a little better for ease on the eyes. Integration is a little complex as well.

    If your hospital is considering this product I strongly warn against it.

    Pros

    There is very little to appreciate in this system. I really can't find any positive aspects of this software. Common sense and user experience was not a top priority while this system was being constructed.

    Cons

    The product is very poorly built from the unpinnings to the user interface. The system has bugs that cause it to stop working with no warning. It has way to many clicks and scrolls. It is a hindrance to patient care.

    I am not a fan and the reports were long and wasted paper.

    Pros

    I believe it is customisable and may be good for smaller hospitals. The company trained the hospital staff

    Cons

    I used it in an er setting and hated it. It would not let you move on with a triage until all area are addressed. I felt it jeopardized my patients health on my very sick patients. I heard some of the same complaints from other floors.

    Great product overall and get compliments that it's better than some othe EHR competitors.

    Pros

    Easy to use and user friendly. Very competitive application. We are able to customize too which makes it more adaptable to our workflow.

    Cons

    Updates seem to cause issues for some time. We find several bugs after each update but that comes with the territory.

    Meditech Magic vs Client Server

    Value for Money

    I have used both Magic and Client Server and find the latter much more intuitive. Meditech Magic looks like a bare bones version of Client Server. I worked in the IT department at the Magic hospital, and the report writer was able to create new reports very easily on the fly. The hospital was constantly changing various screens since it was so easy to do (not necessarily a good thing). I was an end-user at the Client Server hospital so I don't have the same level of knowledge of the IT side. Customer support seemed fair at both locations.

    Pros

    Meditech Magic is easier to build onsite and report options are good; Client Server is more user friendly and visually appealing.

    Cons

    Meditech Magic screens are more difficult to understand and navigate; client server can be overhwhelming in terms of the number of tabs and amount of information on the screen.

    Pros

    Nothing. According to our administration, the system cost millions of dollars for our small community hospital. Yet our IT dept. had to build the system. I was very involved in this process. But there are many inherent limitations of this software. The company did send there people to our hospital for support, they were good, but they frequently said 'it can't do this' or 'it can't do that' when asked why/what can be done to streamline or expand any specific screen or template for any given item.

    Cons

    It is inherently slow. It takes many clicks to accomplish a single step. We have a very good IT dept. and we built the software customized to our hospital. But the system is inherently dysfunctional. There area many examples including very limited number of characters that can be entered by free text in there small box space, then it may unexpectedly delete any of this info. The med reconciliation is cumbersome and inflexible, looking up old records is slow and difficult, and the whole system in unintuitive. We were forced to use the system in my department, but some staff Dr's refused to use it. I used this software at 2 different hospitals and both were bad. There was universal agreement of our med staff that even after a couple of yrs of it being in place, nobody liked it.
