Lawrence General Hospital Goes LIVE with MEDITECH Expanse

Sponsored by Businesswire

Building on MEDITECH’s industry-leading market share in Massachusetts,
Lawrence General Hospital recently went LIVE with Expanse, the company’s
fully integrated web-based Enterprise Health Record (EHR). The regional
hospital chose the interoperable Expanse platform following a
competitive selection process.

The partnership with Lawrence General marks MEDITECH’s continued growth
in its home state of Massachusetts. The company has a 60% acute care
market share in the state and Lawrence General represents many
significant milestones for a Massachusetts MEDITECH organization,
including the first to go LIVE with Expanse Point of Care, Ambulatory,
ED, Acute, and Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) integration.

“Partnering with Lawrence General is particularly meaningful, as we are
helping our neighbor to achieve their goal of having a fully-integrated
EHR across all care settings,” said Helen Waters, executive vice
president at MEDITECH. “Expanse enables Lawrence General to streamline
clinicians’ workflow and supports the provision of high-quality,
personalized patient care.”

MEDITECH physicians and executives worked closely with Lawrence General
throughout the process and were on-site during the go-LIVE to ensure a
successful implementation.

Lawrence General is a private, non-profit community hospital providing
the Merrimack Valley and southern New Hampshire regions with
patient-centered, compassionate, and quality health care for the whole
family. The facility serves nearly 325,000 patients annually.

“We are pleased to have this fully-integrated electronic health record
supporting high quality care at Lawrence General. This go-LIVE is the
culmination of more than two years of planning, intensive education and
testing prior to the actual conversion,” comments Felix Mercado, chief
financial officer at Lawrence General. “The successful launch is due to
this highly collaborative planning process and strong technical support
for our care teams provided by our Information Systems team and our
vendor partners.”

Expanse continues to make its mark in Massachusetts. Several other
healthcare organizations across the state have recently decided to move
forward with Expanse including Signature
, Berkshire
Health Systems
, and the Massachusetts Health Collaborative (MHC), a
consortium of local community hospitals: Harrington
, Holyoke
Medical Center
, and Heywood
