    Cherry County Hospital and Clinic signs with MEDITECH's Expanse MaaS Platform

    Nebraska Health System Unifies EHRs with Meditech Expanse

    Recent EHR Investments Focus on Interoperability, Patient Experience

    In addition to its nine MaaS signings, several additional healthcare organizations also signed for Expanse in Q4, including Cherry County Hospital and Clinic (Valentine, NE). CCH is focused on providing personalized, quality, progressive healthcare services for the citizens of Valentine and surrounding communities. Their transition to Expanse was based around their goals of maintaining autonomy, ensuring operational excellence, and bringing together their hospital, clinics, and home care under a single EHR.

    "Expanse will help our providers navigate patient records with ease and efficiency, decreasing the time we spend on administrative tasks and increasing the time we spend with patients," said CCH Physician Champion Dr. Allegra M. Ponshock.

    CNO Nancy Hicks-Arsenault noted the benefits CCH's one record approach offers to patients: "With improved access to their own health records, patients can be more involved in healthcare decisions at their convenience and on an ongoing basis."
