Cedar County Memorial Hospital in El Dorado Springs, MO has successfully completed its implementation of the MEDITECH Expanse Electronic Health Record (EHR) with consulting and infrastructure help from Engage. Cedar County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) is a 25-bed hospital situated between Kansas City, Joplin, and Springfield.
Expanse is the latest software from MEDITECH which provides a seamless patient record across both the inpatient and outpatient locations of care. The new EHR system will provide a number of benefits for both providers and patients such as: improving quality outcomes, evidence and expert based decision-making, mobility, and advanced reporting capabilities. The new EHR will be used in nearly every part of the hospital and provide a single source of truth for patient care as well as an efficient platform for billing and overall hospital operations.
“MEDITECH Expanse is a robust software system providing integration that will improve communication between our hospital and clinic,” says CCMH CEO Jana Witt. “We are excited about the functionality provided by MEDITECH Expanse and believe our patients will be able to be more active in their healthcare through the enhanced patient portal.”
Cedar County contracted with Engage in August 2017 to provide comprehensive services including the building of the required servers and infrastructure in addition to assistance in the form of project management, clinical and revenue cycle consulting and additional staff to help with the pharmacy integration and physician training.
David Bozarth, CCMH IT Director said, “We could not have been happier with our choice of Engage as a partner. The Engage team came alongside, took ownership of their work, and became members of our team. Their understanding of the rural hospital setting and their flexibility were key success factors in completing this implementation.”
