  • Often we encounter an issue & struggle while working with MEDITECH because we strayed so far from Best Practices to accommodate a workflow.

    The facility I work for upgraded to MEDITECH’s 6.06 platform in 2012. At that time, I was a clinical superuser from the OR, and had very little understanding what impact the decisions I was making would have on others users for years to come. I also had no idea what opportunities and challenges would present themselves over the next three years.

    In that time, I transitioned away from the bedside, into a full-time IT clinical analyst role. I also completed a master’s degree in health informatics, and learned many new principles. Eventually, I moved into my current role as a manager, and began to see things from yet another perspective.

    Having these experiences and functioning in a completely different role has led me to ask one question more frequently than any other:

    Why did we choose to customize almost every application to existing workflows, instead of modifying workflows to those outlined in MEDITECH’s Best Practices documentation?

  • Jumping into healthcare right out of college with a Management Information Systems degree was a bit on the scary side.

    Jumping into healthcare right out of college with a Management Information Systems degree was a bit on the scary side. All I really knew was retail and of course…coursework. I did not have any healthcare knowledge or experience. To be honest, I hated hearing about diseases, surgeries, organs, etc. Never did I think I would be working in a hospital. However, during my senior year, I was given the opportunity to work at a hospital as an IT Intern for graduation credit.

    During the internship, I was mainly exposed to help desk duties but was also able to show off some VB and Crystal Reports skills. At the end of the internship, my superior told me they were creating a new position and that I should apply. The new role would be a Database Administrator. I still had about 6 months until graduation and was very unsure of my capabilities to do the tasks that a DBA was supposed to do. Luckily, my superior believed in me and my ability to learn.

    If you haven’t figured it out already, the View/Download/Transmit requirement of the Meaningful Use functional measures has been one of the toughest to meet. Amazingly enough, it was originally thought that the 5% requirement for this measure was far too low!

    Since then, this measurement has proved to be one of the most difficult. I thought it would be a good idea to review some of the strategies that are necessary to help your facility get patients engaged and enrolled.

    Some good news is that Meditech is in the process of adding several enhancements to help facilitate this effort. Enhancements include putting portal enrollment status on patient headers and other screens to make the membership more visible.

    The first thing to realize is that there is no best or only solution here. You really have to do everything you possibly can to promote and get patients signed up!!


    Collect Emails!
    This is the most critical part since it will quickly affect general support…
