MEDITECH offers a great variety of electronic “solutions” for hospitals, private practices, even home care. As for its EHR solutions, its website states that it offers an “integrated EHR designed to help your organization increase patient safety, streamline processes, and improve communication across departments and care teams. Our solution helps staff react more quickly to issues and changing conditions by automatically pushing information out to the appropriate personnel and displaying it in a meaningful form.”

It adds that all of its applications “are fully integrated, facilitating the seamless exchange of demographic, clinical, and financial information between departments and care teams.”

Epic Systems offers, among many systems, its EpicCare Inpatient Clinical System. This software system, according to Epic’s website, is “role-based” and simplifies “relevant information access for physicians, nurses, therapists, dietitians and any other provider in the hospital setting.”
