We don’t just make software. We empower healthcare organizations to keep their patients and their business healthy. Our electronic health record connects care across every setting, enabling clinicians to provide higher quality care, with greater efficiency, to more people. After nearly five decades of growth and recognition, our company has never been more energized to build the next generation of EHR leaders.

MEDITECH was founded on the pioneering idea that computer systems could not only orchestrate care processes but improve them. As healthcare has evolved, we’ve evolved along with it — transforming the industry with bold, innovative solutions and unwavering integrity. And we’re just getting started.

We’re expanding healthcare IT beyond hospital walls and desktop computers, and into homes and mobile devices. We’re connecting patient information across all environments, for care coordination that tells the entire patient story. We’re replacing mouse clicks with taps and swipes. We’re working with doctors to design solutions that transcend burnout while increasing satisfaction and productivity. And we’ve combined it all into a Web EHR, our greatest innovation yet.
