US-based company HCA Healthcare is set to implement Meditech Expanse, a web-based electronic health record (EHR) system, at its New Hampshire hospital sites.
Implementation of the platform is in progress at HCA Healthcare’s Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester, Parkland Medical Center in Derry, and Portsmouth Regional Hospital in Portsmouth, and is expected to go live next year.
Once completed, Expanse will help HCA Healthcare hospitals to further improve patient care.
The technology will facilitate seamless transitions of care as patients and providers move within HCA Healthcare locations.
HCA Healthcare chief information officer Marty Paslick said: “Meditech is a longtime partner of HCA Healthcare, and we are excited to continue working together through their next-generation software capabilities designed to better support our hospital teams and continue to improve care.”
The move is said to be part of HCA Healthcare’s digital transformation efforts.
Meditech noted that its Expanse technology has been designed and developed to offer an intuitive web-based navigation as well as support mobile technology.
Since 1990, the company has been working with HCA Healthcare.
The Expanse project is a partnership between Meditech, HCA Healthcare, and Meditech ready-certified partner CereCore for delivering next iteration of technology that improves patient care.
Meditech president and CEO Michelle O’Connor said: “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with HCA Healthcare on this next chapter of their digital transformation.
“Meditech is proud to provide a modern, integrated platform to address today’s healthcare challenges and opportunities.
“We believe Expanse will drive increased physician and nurse efficiencies and higher levels of end user satisfaction while allowing a continued focus on delivering a quality care experience, a hallmark of HCA Healthcare’s overall success.”
Last month, HCA Healthcare unveiled plans to build three new acute care hospitals in Florida, US.
