MA Hospitals using Epic?

Posted

Specializes in Cardiac Telemetry, ICU.

I've recently moved to Massachusetts and got a job at a community hospital in a new specialty. I used Epic for the entirety of my nursing career (coming up on 2 years) and this hospital only uses meditech. I heard how inefficient meditech was but I never imagined it would be this bad. There is no training for meditech at this hospital and my current preceptor is understandably finding it difficult to walk me through it while also teaching me about this patient population. Therefore, I may decide this hospital is not a good fit for me.

To summarize, I loathe meditech and may switch to a different hospital. What Massachusetts hospitals use Epic?

Any input would be appreciated, even just listing which ones use meditech so I can avoid them. Thanks everyone.

Don't like meditech either. Most of my experience is southern mass. The steward hospitals, Sturdy, Brockton all use Meditech

Partners hospitals use Epic. Also the Southcoast Health hospitals (Charlton, St. Luke's, Tobey) use Epic. Lifespan hospitals (Rhode Island) use Epic. Not too sure about the Worcester area hospitals or Northern MA

All Partners hospital use Epic. Beth Israel Deaconess has their own home grown charting system I was told, so if you wanna give that a try you can.
