Meet MaaS: MEDITECH as a Service

Whether a hospital has 6 or 600 beds, clinicians require the right tools to provide quality patient care. If only it were that simple, right?

Procuring a modern EHR can be complex and costly, pulling on an organization’s resources from all angles — not to mention having to navigate numerous third party products in order to meet all their needs. For smaller healthcare organizations, this can become an especially daunting experience.

To help address these issues, MEDITECH is introducing MEDITECH as a Service (MaaS), our new cloud-based EHR subscription service. We are initially offering MaaS to critical access hospitals, who will benefit from the operational efficiency and cost effectiveness it brings to patient care facilities.

We identified the need to provide sustainable services at a predictable cost to these critical access hospitals. With MaaS, organizations purchase a single monthly subscription, and licensing is simplified with just one consolidated agreement for multiple third-party vendor features needed to effectively utilize this enterprise-serving solution. This reduction in complexity allows healthcare organizations to focus on what they do best: providing care.

MaaS is more than a simplified delivery system - it’s a robust, modern EHR that will equip organizations with the technology needed to improve organizational efficiency and ensure quality patient care. MaaS customers will enjoy the full benefits of our integrated Web EHR, which includes web-based physician tools, interoperability solutions, standard content, and patient access, revenue cycle, and clinical decision-support tools - all under one umbrella. Our goal is to ensure that our customers have world-class tools that drive the delivery of proactive care and quality outcomes in this value-based healthcare model.

MaaS represents a critical step in driving EHR access and adoption for care organizations of all sizes. Reducing the complexity and cost of procuring and maintaining an EHR will allow these hospitals to focus their resources on patient care, productivity, and meeting regulations. MaaS allows smaller organizations to get up and running with a sophisticated EHR solution, all with a level of ease that is uncommon in our industry.

It’s another bold move towards our goal of pushing healthcare forward by making clinicians more productive, delivering a positive patient experience, and driving organizational excellence in the new healthcare paradigm.
