RML Specialty Hospital Selects Engage, a Tegria Company, for MEDITECH Expanse Cloud Hosting
Engage is pleased to announce RML Specialty Hospital in Hinsdale, Illinois has selected Engage to provide cloud hosting for its upcoming MEDITECH Expanse electronic health record implementation.
RML had initially planned to host Expanse in its on-premises data center. As concerns arose around complexity, costs, staffing and cybersecurity, RML retained an outside agency to assess whether hosting on-premises or in the cloud would best serve them. After careful study, RML opted for cloud hosting. “We had to consider what was the best direction for us, and why. Strategically, we wanted to dedicate more of our IT team and resources on the user experience and the application instead of investing more resources on networking and maintenance,” said Todd Prellberg, RML’s director of information services.
After reviewing multiple proposals, RML selected Engage to host and provide backup and data recovery services. As a previous customer of Engage, RML has first-hand experience with Engage’s expertise and stellar customer service.
Another aspect important to RML was selection of a vendor with a long-term commitment to MEDITECH Expanse hosting and support. With Navin Haffty already onboard for Expanse implementation consulting, and Engage and Navin Haffty now strategically aligned through their recent acquisition by Tegria, having the firms providing solutions together with aligned responsibility and accountability made this the logical choice.
“We wanted to select a vendor committed to the MEDITECH market. We had prior experience with Engage supporting our hardware, so we knew what they were capable of. Their alignment with Navin Haffty was a significant factor in our decision. We are looking forward to the partnership and the positive impact MEDITECH Expanse will bring to our hospital,” said Thomas Pater, chief financial officer, RML Specialty Hospital.
