April 24, 2019
ATCHISON, Kan., April 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Engage congratulates Atchison Hospital on their successful Go-LIVE of MEDITECH Expanse April 1, 2019. The new Expanse EHR consolidates patient records across all points of care and provides the hospital with a technology platform that will allow for continued innovation.

Atchison Hospital is a long-time MEDITECH customer and after reviewing several alternatives, determined that Expanse was the best fit for their needs. The web-based EHR won over members of the selection committee who were impressed by demonstrations of the ambulatory application and MEDITECH's flexibility to ensure it met the needs of their hospital and providers.

Atchison Hospital utilized Engage for implementation consulting services including project management, financial lead, clinical lead, ambulatory EMR lead, ambulatory practice management lead, and physician training. Additionally, Engage provided staff augmentation for the Lab system build.

"One reason Engage was chosen was because of their model of having specialists on staff as opposed to contractors. That seemed very attractive along with their experience working in critical access hospitals and with the Expanse ambulatory system," says Terry Davis, Information Technology Director, Atchison Hospital. "Our partnership with Engage has been one of the best consulting engagements I've been a part of."
