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.

Meditech Magic vs Client Server

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.

Great for Clinical AND B/AR users; redundant if you only use one or the other

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.

Difficult to use

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.

Cumbersome, slow, unintuitive, dysfunctional

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.

Great product.

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 EHR

Pros

I have used Meditech in 2 hospital systems. I am very used to it's menus and how to navigate. The labels are very user-friendly for healthcare

Cons

I would really like to be able to use more of the custom fields; the documentation is difficult to understand.

Can be difficult to understand at first!

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

very old school program

Pros

It didn't take long to learn the program, it's pretty simple. It is straight forward and gets the job done

Cons

It seems archaic, could use some updates. a lot of screens to go through to get to what you need. didn't like using the arrow keys so much.

Has potential

Pros

Purchased prior to my arrival of job. Looking forward to the newest update of Meditech 6.16 when it arrives.

Cons

Worklist are not customization or prioritizing patients. And does not allow a hard stop if needed.

Easy to use, one software to manage everything

Pros

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...

When bad software won't die

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.

Good product for moderate to large sized facilities!

Easy to use with little training.

Pros

Good consistency and simple to use. Easy customization to meet the needs of individual companies to improve efficiency.

Cons

Some downtime experienced but with only mild delays. While the downtime was an inconvenience consistent updates in regards to use of product were provided.

Pros

Allows for thorough compliant documentation. We are in the process of upgrading our current system to the newer Meditech version.

Cons

Current version is outdated. Would recommend upgrading if you already have Meditech. Staff are easy to work with!

very archaic 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.

Pros

I see nothing that is a Pro of this EHR - I have absolutely no compliments. I mean I guess it is electronic?.

Cons

The layout is by far the worst I've seen! These days you should be able to easily modify your home screen to your preference (organize by bed versus name versus attending physician, etc) ... this is easy to do but yet this EHR does not even do this! The orders are by far the least intuitive I've worked with (allergy warnings do not pop up when medications are entered, etc). This system is so archaic it is dangerous.

Run-of-The-Mill Electronic Health Record Database

Pros

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.

Cons

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

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