Migration to MEDITECH delivers gains through single patient medical record


FRANKLIN, TN (February 27, 2018) – Santa Rosa Consulting, Inc. a leading provider of management consulting and information technology services for the healthcare industry, actively assisted Harrison Memorial Hospital in northern Kentucky with a successful on-time and on-budget migration from MEDITECH Magic and E-Clinical Works to a fully integrated, web-based MEDITECH 6.1 platform.

When Harrison Memorial began their READY Partner selection in 2016, they conducted a thorough evaluation as they had not used the assistance of consultants in the past. The choice became clear, resulting in their selection of Santa Rosa, based upon their desired criteria: reputation, price, experience, and adaptability to their hospital’s environment. “Like a lot of community hospitals, our team wears a lot of hats,” says Martha Sullivan, Harrison Memorial’s Chief Information Officer. With the successful project completed, she shares “We relied on Santa Rosa to keep the project running on time and functioning well. Their library of documentation, and years of experience with an understanding of MEDITECH, was extraordinarily valuable to Harrison.”

Harrison Memorial’s goals for the migration extended beyond establishing a single, integrated patient record. The project was also defined and executed to enhance continuity of care, update the community MPI, improve clinical workflows, strengthen Progress Notes completion compliance, and rigorously safeguard, if not improve, the hospital’s revenue cycle performance. This latter goal of protecting A/R and other fiscal results is a key aspect of Santa Rosa’s partnership approach with their clients as illustrated in the recent “MEDITECH 6.1 Implementation with Web Ambulatory” case study, featuring Harrison Memorial.

Santa Rosa’s Transition Management Program helps protect financial and other mission-critical results during the activity interconnected with a MEDITECH implementation and plays a significant role in the firm’s 100% success rate in MEDITECH projects.

“No one does MEDITECH implementations better than Santa Rosa as evidenced by our unblemished track record of over 70 successful projects,” says Mark Scruggs, EVP. “We bring unique focus, expertise, and tools to deliver unparalleled results to the market. Our focus on quality assurance, advanced e-learning capabilities, and now automated MEDITECH testing demonstrates to the industry that we are committed to developing new solutions that provide advanced value and enhance our rich portfolio of MEDITECH centric services.”

Santa Rosa and several of their clients will discuss valuable lessons learned and best practices in MEDITECH implementation success on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. Central. Register here to attend this upcoming webinar.
