Sponsored by Businesswire

Building on its foundation as the first fully digital hospital in North
America, Humber River Hospital (HRH) recently went LIVE with Expanse,
MEDITECH’s Web Enterprise Health Record (EHR). A major acute care
hospital that serves more than 850,000 people in the greater Toronto
area, the upgrade to Expanse provides the facility with cutting-edge
technology that is designed to improve efficiency and connect patient
care across the spectrum.

“Throughout our nearly 30-year partnership with MEDITECH, we have had a
collaborative relationship which was an important part of our decision
to upgrade to Expanse,” said Peter Bak, CIO at HRH. “MEDITECH’s ability
to keep up with our evolving needs has enabled us to continue to execute
our innovative digital strategy and deliver exceptional patient care.”

The upgrade was the culmination of a multifaceted project planned by the
hospital’s “Go-LIVE team.” During the implementation, MEDITECH worked
with its longtime customer to ensure the implementation was as effective
and efficient as possible.

“Humber is a flagship hospital, setting the industry standard with its
technological vision. We are honored to partner with them to achieve the
next milestone in their plan,” MEDITECH Executive Vice President Helen
Waters said.

As part of the upgrade, HRH went LIVE with Expanse ED and Physician
Documentation (PDoc) solutions that will increase efficiency and
streamline workflow. The hospital has one of Canada’s busiest emergency
departments, serving more than 140,000 patients annually.

MEDITECH continues to meet the unique healthcare needs of organizations
globally. With more than 50 LIVE regional installations comprised of
over 500 inpatient facilities, the company is the Canadian
EHR market leader
, with a 47% market share across the country.
Global healthcare research firm KLAS has recognized MEDITECH in its
annual Best in KLAS: Software & Services report for five years in a row,
and in 2019 MEDITECH Expanse ranked Best in KLAS for Acute
Care EMR (Canada)
