Richland Center, WI – The Richland Hospital and Clinics (TRHI) will upgrade the organization’s health information system effective July 1st. TRHI’s electronic health information system offers one centralized location for patient medical records – where healthcare providers can share information about the care a patient receives. This shared system offers increased safety of patient care and seamless record sharing with appropriate personnel.
All patients of TRHI will have their health records stored in MEDITECH Expanse effective July 1, 2022. TRHI will undergo this upgrade to establish clear communication between all departments; to eliminate manual workarounds; to increase department efficiencies; and, to continue delivering excellent patient care to the community.
In 2020, The Richland Hospital, Inc. merged with the Richland Medical Center and each entity operated under different electronic health information systems; The Richland Hospital under MEDITECH and Richland Medical Center under Aprima. Since the merger of the hospital and clinic in 2020, all staff across the hospital and clinic have been entering patient data into two systems. After much research, TRHI internally announced the intent to use a singular system in order to offer ideal patient care, efficiencies, and communication. MEDITECH was the preferred system and MEDITECH Expanse is an upgrade offering the opportunity for the hospital and clinics to merge records.
