Braintree, Mass.-based Summit Healthcare has signed five new hospitals. Beaufort Memorial Hospital (Beaufort, S.C.), Blythedale Children’s Hospital (Valhalla, N.Y.), Boulder Community Hospital (Boulder, Colo.), Cayuga Medical Center (Ithaca, N.Y.) and Jordan Hospital (Plymouth, Mass.) have all chosen the company as their sole integration partner as they migrate from their current Meditech (Westwood, Mass.) platforms to Meditech 6.0.

Summit Healthcare says it will provide these organizations with its expertise for interface management, data migration and dictionary maintenance to ensure successful, streamlined and secure migrations. Its product suite provides Meditech customers with a toolset for integration and automation needs and streamlines the Meditech 6.0 migration efforts, it says.

According to the company, the Summit Apex suite is comprised of: an interface engine used for both hospital and physician office EMR integration with third party systems; a workflow and task automation tool that also provides the means to extract and parse data; a solution for dictionary maintenance; and a reporting system designed to ensure access to critical patient data at all times.

Get the latest information on Health IT and attend other valuable sessions at this two-day Summit providing healthcare leaders with educational content, insightful debate and dialogue on the future of healthcare and technology.
