My thoughts for this month:
This example represents the type of situation where integrated processes, better communication systems and a true patient centered focused would have resulted in an improved experience

One of the benefits for MEDITECH employees is their annual picnic. This year’s theme was a celebration of MEDITECH’s 50th anniversary. We came across a picture from this year’s event and thought it was worth sharing. Can you recognize the faces in the sand sculpture?
With MEDITECH’s announcement of a Professional Services division, we wanted to highlight some of their unique capabilities. MEDITECH is now providing a full range of services to support physician engagement and adoption. With a team of experienced physician advisor leaders and subject matter expert consultants, the initial physician advisory offerings include:

It’s not too late to sign up to attend MEDITECH’s annual Physician/CIO Forum being held September 18-19 at their Foxborough, MA facility. The Forum represents the best opportunity to learn about MEDITECH’s plans for their software and to hear from your colleagues as they share success stories and lessons learned.
Some of the topics we think will be of interest include:
NHA is pleased to see a number of our past and present clients will be presenting:
Several of us from NHA will be there, and since we are local to MEDITECH’s offices we can easily arrange to meet before or after the Forum. To arrange a meeting, contact David LaFontaine.

Once again this year, NHA, CloudWave and Forward Advantage are hosting the Welcome Reception for MEDITECH customers, which will be held the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 17. Leaders from all three sponsoring companies will be present, and we look forward to seeing you there. Click here to register (separate registration needed).
MEDITECH is hosting two events focused on optimization. These core administrative functions don’t often get the same level of attention as the clinicals or revenue cycle, so we wanted to make sure these are known to our readers:
Both events will be held at MEDITECH’s Foxborough, Massachusetts location and apply to all MEDITECH platforms (MAGIC, C/S, 6.x, Expanse).
