St. Luke’s Goes LIVE with MEDITECH Expanse

Regional healthcare system launches web-based Enterprise Health
Record (EHR) for enhanced patient information sharing

WESTWOOD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Focused on putting the patient first and providing state-of-the-art
care, St.
Luke’s Health Care System
recently went LIVE with MEDITECH Expanse,
the company’s web-based Enterprise Health Record (EHR). The move to
Expanse enables the Duluth, Minnesota healthcare system to connect
patient information throughout the continuum, providing clinicians a
complete view of the patient for enhanced care and quality outcomes.

Providers are now able to access the complete patient story and share
data throughout its two hospitals and 44 clinics. The move to Expanse
connected St. Luke’s 240 clinic providers and enabled the organization
to share one, integrated EHR. St. Luke’s is utilizing MEDITECH’s Acute,
ED, and Ambulatory solutions.

“We are excited to launch Expanse because it streamlines how we access
and share patient information across our system,” St. Luke’s Information
Technology Director Clark Averill said. “Having this system is a win for
our patients and our staff.”

A customer since 2002, St. Luke’s partnered with MEDITECH on this
project because of its long-standing relationship and collaborative
approach to providing solutions that are designed to enhance patient
care. The value and sophistication of the EHR were also key factors in
St. Luke’s selection of Expanse.

“It is an honor to partner with St. Luke’s to help elevate the patient
experience and furnish its healthcare providers with technology that
supports their efforts in delivering safe, quality care,” said Helen
Waters, executive vice president at MEDITECH. “We value our long-time
partnership with this progressive organization, and look forward to
seeing them leverage Expanse to meet their evolving needs.”

Serving the residents of Northeastern Minnesota, Northwestern Wisconsin,
and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, St. Luke’s has provided medical
leadership since 1881 as the first hospital in Duluth. St. Luke’s is
also a member of Wilderness Health, a collaboration of independent
providers working together to improve healthcare in Northeast Minnesota
and Northwest Wisconsin.
