Navin, Haffty & Associates (NHA) is pleased to announce Peterson Health of Kerrville, Texas went live on March 1 with a migration from MEDITECH 6.07 to Expanse. A private, not-for-profit community-based healthcare facility with 124 beds, Peterson Health has provided patient centered care to the residents of Texas hill country for over 65 years. The organization partnered with NHA for implementation consulting services in order to reduce the impact of the project on their resources, including time and budget.
NHA provided project management, several project leads (clinical, SUR, HIM/SCA), Pharmacy support, and multiple physician training and at-the-elbow Go-LIVE support resources. Within days of Go-LIVE Peterson Health reported throughput in the ED and CPOE returned to baseline metrics, increased physician utilization of MEDITECH in the surgical areas, optimization of pharmacy formulary and medication strings, standardization of surgery workflows, and multiple workflow improvements.
According to Lisa Medovich, Peterson Health’s Chief Financial & Compliance Officer, “I very much appreciated NHA’s expertise to help Peterson Health achieve excellence throughout our MEDITECH Expanse build, training and implementation processes. We were impressed with our project manager’s intelligence, tenacity, and boundless energy. Because of her project leadership, and the consultants and various trainers who provided physician support during go-LIVE, we were able to achieve success.”
NHA is the proud recipient of the prestigious Best in KLAS award for HIT Enterprise Implementation Leadership, a recognition which underscores our differentiation in the MEDITECH READY implementation consulting services market. NHA was ranked the #1 MEDITECH Implementation Consultant & Advisor for 2018 by Black Book Research. We remain the only READY-certified firm with an exclusive focus on the MEDITECH EHR.
