Innovation meets transformation as Citrus Valley Health Partners prepares to implement MEDITECH Expanse early next year. The comprehensive health system is planning for a March 2019 launch of the intuitive, web-based, mobile Enterprise Health Record (EHR) across its three hospitals and multiple ambulatory sites.
Citrus Valley Health Partners (CVHP) selected MEDITECH as its new EHR vendor in 2017. It’s been a long, but exciting journey for President & CEO Rob Curry.
“Expanse is a major investment for CVHP in more ways than one,” Curry said. “The decision to build this brand new EHR did not come lightly and our physicians and staff have already spent thousands of hours behind the scenes to ensure our kick-off day is successful. But we believe in its potential and we know this will be a real game changer for how we deliver care to our communities."
The system went live today, October 1, with deployment of Expanse at its hospice and home care locations. Clinicians and other staff for Citrus Valley Hospice and Home Health in West Covina said the new standardized EHR provides the enhanced tools necessary to increase their productivity so they can deliver best-in-class care to every patient.
“We’re honored to partner with CVHP and witness how it will help to transform health care in Southern California,” said Helen Waters, executive vice president at MEDITECH.
