– Willis-Knighton Health System, the largest healthcare system in North Louisiana renews long-term partnership with MEDITECH to deploy the fully-integrated EHR platform across all care settings.
– Implementation includes Expanse Population Health, which will enable them to deliver care that reaches far beyond the hospital and physician’s office.
Willis-Knighton Health System, a Shreveport, LA-based not-for-profit healthcare system, today announced it has signed to implement MEDITECH’s mobile, web-based Enterprise Health Record (EHR), Expanse, across its five hospitals and 140 clinics. The intuitive, web-based, mobile EHR system will equip providers and clinicians with the enhanced tools necessary to increase their productivity.
Expanse Population Health
In addition, the provider will implement Expanse Population Health, which will enable them to deliver care that reaches far beyond the hospital and physician’s office. Care teams will be able to examine entire groups of patients, determine who they’re accountable for, and decide on the appropriate interventions — all from just one screen. By identifying at-risk patients, gaps in care, and overdue health maintenance, MEDITECH’s Patient Registries will help Willis-Knighton promote wellness and take a more proactive approach to care coordination and disease management.
Impact of Upgrade for Willis-Knighton
“We are upgrading to MEDITECH’s Expanse system because it meets the high-quality standards we are seeking as we upgrade data management at Willis-Knighton,” said James K. Elrod, President and CEO of Willis-Knighton Health System. “This will not only enhance care, it will also enhance the quality of life for our physicians and other staff who use our electronic health record.”
Elrod continued, “Our physicians will be able to seamlessly review, synchronize, and coordinate care for patients in all locations. Due to our long-term relationship with MEDITECH, we are confident that Expanse will support our data management and documentation needs now and well into the future.”
