MEDITECH has disrupted the EHR market with its revolutionary physician mobility tools, and now the company is doing it again for nurses and therapists with Expanse Patient Care. The intuitive, web-based software empowers nurses and therapists to mobilize care delivery using the device best suited for the task at hand, while keeping their focus on what matters most — their patients.

Designed using MEDITECH’s strong framework and understanding of how nurses and therapists really practice, Expanse Patient Care enhances mobility and streamlines nursing and therapy workflows. Use of familiar, mobile devices allows nurses and therapists to “stay on the go” and maintain face-to-face time with their patients. With a smartphone, caregivers can untether from WOWs and conveniently perform bedside verification, review clinical decision support tools, conduct patient assessments, and review the patient record in the palm of their hands.

Additionally, the solution allows for personalized navigation so users can review patient records in a way that works best for them, with customizable features and a user interface similar to their everyday mobile devices. Users can also conveniently review the full patient journey through a single EHR available on a single mobile device, allowing them to collaborate with physicians using a consistent toolset and efficiently navigate care transitions.

“Nurses and therapists are the largest user group within the MEDITECH community, so it was important for MEDITECH to enhance our EHR in a way that improves their unique and demanding experiences,” said Cathy Turner, BSN, MBA, RN-BC, associate vice president, MEDITECH. “We are excited to provide a modern solution that functions on a mobile device to help transform the way nurses and therapists with busy schedules deliver care.

It is well documented that personal and positive interactions between patients and their care teams improve patient satisfaction. By breaking down technology barriers that too often come between nurses and their patients, Expanse Patient Care helps get nurses back to doing what they enjoy most, while also enhancing the patient experience. With Expanse Patient Care, MEDITECH is reducing the learning curve for nurses and therapists and improving their productivity, resulting in higher overall satisfaction for both caregivers and their patients.
