The MEDITECH Expanse EHR will be deployed across Bethany Children’s 160-bed hospital, outpatient clinics, and rehabilitation services. This strategic move aims to establish a unified approach to care coordination, as highlighted by Michael Johnson, CMO of Bethany, who expressed in a press release, “The implementation of MEDITECH Expanse will empower us with an integrated solution that significantly elevates our care delivery to all patients. By providing a technologically advanced, customizable, and user-friendly solution, our staff can dedicate more time to fulfilling our mission – realizing the potential of every child.”
Bethany Children’s Health Center provides a range of pediatric care services, including outpatient care, transitional care, rehabilitation, and complex care. This diverse array of services necessitated the adoption of an EHR system capable of accommodating intricate and varied requirements.
Over nine months, Bethany Children’s conducted an in-depth analysis of their workflows to identify areas of improvement. Dr. Darrin Brannan, Chief of Clinical Innovation at Bethany, stated, “After thoroughly evaluating our existing workflows and identifying pain points, we meticulously outlined 237 specific needs for our new EHR system.” Dr. Brannan further explained, “Subsequently, we crafted a model patient to represent our most intricate case, utilizing this framework to test the capabilities of potential EHR systems. The result was the selection of MEDITECH Expanse, a reliable, adaptable, user-centric, transparent, and evolving platform.”
This EHR implementation also translates into enhanced patient benefits, offering a centralized patient portal that grants access to virtual appointments and remote patient monitoring solutions.
