Memorial Healthcare Partners with Parallon Technology Solutions for MEDITECH Expanse Implementation

Expanse Implementation

We are pleased to announce Memorial Healthcare in Owosso, MI has selected Parallon Technology Solutions (PTS) as their MEDITECH Expanse implementation partner. Currently operating the MEDITECH MAGIC 5.66 platform, Memorial sought to further enhance patient care and offer better tools to their physicians by moving their EMR to the most up-to-date version of MEDITECH. “We have conducted a tremendous amount of due diligence reviewing platforms and many different implementation approaches,” said Tom Kurtz, Ph.D., VP of Information Services and CIO. “Our focus has been on a solution that provides a single medical record across all care settings, better visibility of our data and performance, and an improved physician and clinical experience.” For this integrated ambulatory and inpatient deployment of Expanse, PTS will provide upgrade services and across MEDITECH’s suite of applications that will enable Memorial to expand their capabilities and maximize their investment in MEDITECH.

Memorial selected PTS as an implementation partner due to our extensive MEDITECH  experience, project methodology, planning and approach to the implementation of Expanse, coupled with how PTS leverages our own Parallon Medical Center (PMC). The PMC is a state-of-the-art MEDITECH Expanse Test/Train environment including core third party applications that proactively minimizes risk and maximizes results. This new environment allows organizations the opportunity to gain essential hands-on experience prior to and during implementation to ensure complete understanding of the applications within MEDITECH.

“We are pleased and honored that an organization as respected as Memorial Healthcare has chosen PTS as their trusted MEDITECH Expanse implementation partner. We are excited to be part of this important hospital project,” said Curtis Watkins, President and CEO of PTS. Implementation of Expanse will begin summer 2018 and will culminate with a mid-year 2019 go-live date.
