MEDITECH EHR Software


 

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.

Overrall decent EHR.

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

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

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.

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.

Likes Least

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.

Recommendations

Talk to multiple experienced users before choosing. Administrators should not be the ones to choose as they don't have to use it. They may like this one b/c it is easy for them to look up the things they are interested in but from a medical perspective, it is lousy.

EMR system eliminates paper charting through checkoff boxes and has companion pharmacy module.

Likes Least

Poor templates, not enough freehand charting, cannot acknowledge more than one med at a time.

Recommendations

Go to a hospital that is using this program and see if they will let you take the time to examine their templates to see if they cover everything you need in a program.

Relatively easy to use, but somewhat primitive in design, which makes it easy to navigate. Also, the ability to purchase modules to upgrade as needs arise.

Likes Least

Inability to produce a professional looking medical document (jumbled mess with no ability to format or set margins easily).

Recommendations

Buy EPIC instead of Meditech if you want advanced features, high-design GUI, smooth integration of transcribed documents and the ability to have the software tailored to meet specific needs.

This is the most cumbersome EMR i have ever used. It takes far too many clicks to accomplish anything. Four screens to simply find a patient is pathetic. Data is poorly organized and not easily displayed.

Likes Least

The entire product needs to be overhauled. It is cumbersome, unintuitive and poorly designed.

Recommendations

Comments from end users. Doctors that actually use the product should evaluate it in actual practice.

Med dose times, self-loads blood glucose levels, alerts to new labs and orders.

Nursing assessments grouped together making it less convenient to chart; could be more user friendly in finding certain reports, images etc.

Recommendations

Get members of all the health care team on board for input on what works/what doesn't.
