MEDITECH is
extending its relationship with The American
Health Information Management Association (AHIMA)
and Sisu Healthcare IT Solutions to provide
access to digital training for 16,000 students in over 300 colleges and
universities using the Expanse EHR.

The American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) is the world’s leading resource for health information (HI) education, with custom-tailored, virtually delivered curriculum for learning institutions that provide associate, baccalaureate, and graduate degree programs as well as certificate level and continuing education units (CEUs) programs. MEDITECH Expanse will be offered as part of the AHIMA VLab™ — an online-based health information environment that features multiple software applications and corresponding lab lessons.

Expanse EHR will serve as the ‘flagship EHR’ within the
AHIMA VLab™. The AHIMA VLab™ is centered around the idea of ‘practice meets
theory,’ with the end goal of ushering students seamlessly into the modern
healthcare workforce.

Why It Matters

Expanse’s cloud-based solution provides instant access to
users via a standard web browser. By adding the Expanse Ambulatory solution,
AHIMA improves their curricula by enabling students to practice in a fully
integrated care setting and demonstrate the effectiveness of a single EHR across a patient’s
care continuum.

“We are excited to implement the MEDITECH Expanse platform,” said AHIMA CEO Wylecia Wiggs Harris, PhD, CAE. “It will give students a leg up on the competition by offering them early exposure to the real-world EHR solutions used in their field every day.”
