Implementation, Optimization, and Upgrade Services

The IN Group offers a full range of services, along with technical and functional Meditech consulting expertise to assist your organization with any of your implementation, optimization, and/or upgrade needs, both big and small. We will work with your staff to ensure that your systems are designed and implemented to support your healthcare organizational goals.

Advanced Clinical Systems

Advancing quality and patient safety initiatives are driving healthcare organizations to consider the integration and enhancements available within the Meditech Advanced Clinical Systems. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 authorizes the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide financial incentives for the meaningful use of certified technology to improve patient care. To receive an Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive payment, healthcare organizations have to show that they are meaningfully using their EHR by meeting thresholds for a number of objectives. Implementing and optimizing Meditech’s Advanced Clinical Systems will be imperative to receive these incentive payments.

The implementation of these products can have a significant impact on workflow within an organization. We will help your organization do a thorough assessment of your current systems functionality and utilization, along with recommendations for optimizing your current clinical applications to improve workflow, thus increasing quality and patient safety within your healthcare organization. Our Consultants possess in-depth Meditech system expertise, along with years of hospital operational experience gained through a variety of leadership roles including RN’s, Pharmacists, Clinical Laboratory Scientists, Clinicians, and IT Analysts.
