Lodi Memorial Hospital has implemented an EHR from MediTech

An EHR is an integral step to improving patient safety and system efficiency. SV

Patient charts in the medical/surgical, intensive care, obstetrics, physical rehabilitation and transitional care units of the 173-bed, 54-year-old nonprofit community-owned hospital are no longer being kept on paper. Soon, patient records in the emergency department and inpatient surgery all will be relegated to computer screens...

By the end of 2007, Lodi Memorial will have spent about $8 million implementing its electronic records system created by Medical Information Technology Inc. (Meditech) of Westwood, Mass., according to hospital spokeswoman Carol Farron.
