In 2017, MEDITECH delivered on major initiatives that have been in the works for some time and has turned its vision of a web-based EHR into reality.
Here are our observations on the past year:
While far from a complete review, we look at 2017 as the year when MEDITECH delivered on promises. Expect to see a strong reaction from the market in 2018.

Here is a recent testimonial from one of our clients:
“NHA was instrumental in making sure we met our go-LIVE date. Not only did we meet the deadline, we met a two-month accelerated deadline and we met it despite many obstacles and extremely challenging and unexpected circumstances along the way. It is a true testament to NHA’s dedication, determination and perseverance. A special thanks to our consultants who provided much needed expertise for their respective applications and to our project manager, who was brought in during the early stages of this project, in a situation that was totally unexpected. He provided excellent organizational and project management skills to help guide us through this massive project. I know we wouldn’t be where we are today without their support.”

Recent KLAS Comments
“Working with Navin Haffty has been very good. They have a very competent crew here. They have really helped us navigate the waters with our implementation. They are very good at helping us facilitate getting the resources that we need from the vendor. So far, everything has been pretty good.” – CFO
“Our software vendor did not suggest using Navin Haffty for our implementation. They stay out of that discussion selection. Our decision was based on the experience of the people that they were going to put here. We were looking for people who had done ambulatory implementations before and who were experienced and knowledgeable about the process. Another company we were considering was still relatively new in that aspect, and they didn’t have the people available that we thought would get the job done here. We had a good experience with that company, but they just didn’t have the depth of experience that Navin Haffty’s people had.” – CFO
“The Navin Haffty consultants have expertise in certain skill sets. I checked whether Navin Haffty had individuals to help support our upgrade, and they had several for us to choose from. The consultants flushed out more information than we had initially requested. That helped us better understand what we needed to address.” – Director
“I guess the biggest impact on our facility was on the clinical workflow. In one engagement, Navin Haffty brought in the key constant and helped us implement the project.” – Director
