WESTWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MEDITECH today announced it will work with HCA Healthcare, one of the nation’s leading providers of healthcare services, to implement MEDITECH Expanse at its New Hampshire hospital sites, as part of the health system’s digital transformation.
The implementation is in progress with an expected Go LIVE next year. The three locations — Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester, Parkland Medical Center in Derry, and Portsmouth Regional Hospital in Portsmouth — will leverage Expanse to help hospital teams deliver excellent patient care focusing on quality improvement and enhanced delivery. The installation of the MEDITECH Expanse platform is designed to help enable seamless transitions of care as patients and providers move within these HCA Healthcare locations.
“MEDITECH is a longtime partner of HCA Healthcare, and we are excited to continue working together through their next-generation software capabilities designed to better support our hospital teams and continue to improve care,” said Marty Paslick, HCA Healthcare’s chief information officer.
