  • We needed a way to get patient forms into the chart & printing and scanning hard copies of registration packets and other docs wasn’t going to cut it.

    When we started investigating how to better capture, store and manage patient forms and form data, there was an obvious content management solution: MEDITECH’s Scanning & Archiving. But we soon realized that this was only part of the puzzle. We needed a way to get patient forms into the chart & printing and scanning hard copies of registration packets and other documents wasn’t going to cut it.

They didn't include one of the largest EHR vendors in the world in their stats. Yes, ladies and gentleman, they omitted Meditech. And sadly, the issues don't end there...

    To add more shame into the mix, I have to note that this website has an estimated traffic of 162,000 users per month. Seeing is believing, so take a second to check out the chart here..
