Dear Friends of the "L"
The hospitals I'm at are switching to another vendor, going LIVE this
June.
It is with great sadness that I bid you farewell. After nearly 30 years
(since 1988) of being a Meditech customer, MUSE attendee and contributor
to the Meditech "L", I will be dropping off of the "L".
I want to thank so many of you for helping the Meditech community and me
all of these years. I don't want to try listing your names because I know
that as soon as I hit "Send", I'll think of someone I missed.
My "Meditech Toolbox" is full of tidbits, attributes, rules and reports
that I have gleaned from you. These tools have helped us provide
excellent patient care and appreciative users of the system.
Anyway, you've been the greatest. I hope you continue to excel and share
your wealth of knowledge with each other on the "L".
Thanks again,
Brian Golden

Best wishes also to Brian. I am going through this also. I have not unsubscribed yet but will be soon. I already miss the Meditech community and support from others doing the same thing. I have not found that in the Cerner world yet. We go live on April Fool's Day. Wish us luck.

Thanks for all the help that I have gotten from this group.

At least with epic you get to double and quadruple your support staff.

Just curious for you guys switching to Epic after Meditech what is the selling point that seals the deal?

We recently went through a full system selection after 24 years on the Magic platform (both hospital and LSS/MPM). We looked at Epic (Community Connect), Cerner (Community Works), Meditech 6.16, McKesson and Evident (CPSI). Interestingly, Epic scored the lowest of the vendors and didn’t garner a single vote from a physician – and we looked at them twice. Our finalists were Meditech and Cerner, and we chose Meditech after a very thorough review that included functionality, user interface and of course cost.
