Meditech is an EHR company based in Boston.
One of the widest-adopted HIS system in the US, MEDITECH competes head-to-head with Cerner and often Epic.
The biggest strategic disadvantage was arguably the lack of an outpatient offering.
Until last year, MEDITECH offered acute system only. They were leaving money on the table as hospitals were forced to find secondary systems for their clinics. As of last year, MEDITECH began selling an Ambulatory module as part of their 6.1 system.
If the early adopters are successful and word-of-mouth builds, this could help MEDITECH square off more successfully with the other HIS system leaders. At very least, this can help them protect their market as they profit off the upgrades to 6.1.
