Westwood, Mass. (PRWEB) July 21, 2015
Did you know that the entire public healthcare community in the country of Botswana will soon be 100% MEDITECH? The leading EHR vendor’s partner company, MEDITECH South Africa, recently signed an agreement to completely deploy the MEDITECH solution to all hospitals and clinics this year.
“The Ministry of Health Botswana deserves to be commended for this remarkable achievement,” says Howard Messing, MEDITECH President and CEO. “Over the past decade, Botswana has implemented MEDITECH’s Client/Server 5.6 solution at almost every hospital, clinic, and health post in the country.”
To better refine its implementation approach, representatives from the Republic of Botswana traveled to the United States and visited Bristol Hospital (Bristol, CT). There, they learned firsthand about the hospital’s use of the MEDITECH system as they prepare for their latest and final implementations.
After the last remaining seven hospitals are implemented, all of the of the 28 public hospitals in Botswana will have deployed MEDITECH. “This is proof that a first world healthcare system like MEDITECH can successfully be deployed in a third world environment,” says Charlotte Jackson, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer at MEDITECH South Africa.
Dr. Sushanth Pillai, Sales and Marketing Executive at MEDITECH South Africa, agrees. “With MEDITECH, Botswana is taking healthcare delivery to the next level and ensuring nurses and clinicians have the right tools they need to operate more efficiently and provide quality care to the extremely diverse and large patient populations they serve.”
