I was cruising through Twitter today and saw the following tweet about Meditech EHR.
Amazingly, latest Meditech update appears to be a step in the right direction for hospital EHR

Don’t you love Twitter? Meditech can buy this kind of marketing. Hopefully for Meditech’s sake, Dr. Parker is right and that Meditech’s latest version is heading in the right direction.
The hospital EHR market is so interesting. Everyone looks at it as a two horse race with Epic and Cerner. Both of those EHR companies have done phenomenally well and so they should get a lot of coverage. However, people always seem to forget about Meditech. It’s odd to me because they still have a really large footprint in healthcare. You’d think they’d get more coverage, even if the coverage was pointing out the wrong steps they’re taking. Instead, I’ve seen very little coverage of them at all.
I took a quick look at Meditech jobs on the Healthcare IT Central job board. There are still a lot of them listed. That’s usually a good sign for a company.
Why doesn’t Meditech get any coverage lately? Are they a sleeping giant that could finally wake up? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
