Galway Clinic a 146-bed hospital, became the first hospital in Ireland and the UK to launch Expanse, MEDITECH’s innovative, fully integrated Patient Administration System (PAS) and Electronic Health Record (EHR).
MEDITECH’s one patient, one record approach and intuitive user interface, fully realised in the Expanse platform, enables Galway Clinic to meet the highest standards in patient safety and care coordination.
Raphael Jaffrezic, CIO at Galway Clinic”Over the past two years, staff across our organisation and MEDITECH have been working diligently to ensure the journey to the new solution was a complete success. Leveraging the contemporary Expanse EHR enhances our commitment to our mission, improving the health and quality of life of the individuals and communities served.”
“MEDITECH has listened to our needs and supported our goal of improving the care we provide to our patients through healthcare technology and high level digitisation. This is a two-way partnership — we know we can continue to depend on MEDITECH to be a cornerstone and get our organisation to the next level in achieving HIMSS Stage 7 in the near future.”
Galway assembled a task force to ensure the implementation was as effective and efficient as possible. Dubbed the “eCuram project,” this team worked together to establish a high level of system trust prior to go live, ensuring a smooth transition to the new MEDITECH solution.
Expanse brings a number of benefits for patients, including a more efficient scheduling process and a patient portal, where patients can see their personal health information, view and cancel appointments, and communicate with their care provider.
