Marion General Hospital (MGH) is a provider of high-quality medical services in rural Grant County, Indiana. For nearly 120 years, the organization has gone above and beyond to make their community happier and healthier. This is reflected in the fact that MGH holds Magnet designation for excellence in nursing services from the American Nurses Credential Center’s (ANCC) Magnet Recognition Program. This recognition is one of the highest that a hospital can achieve and places MGH in a very select group of healthcare organizations, not only in Indiana, but nationwide. The organization has also received the CHiME HealthCare’s ‘Most Wired’ award several times, highlighting their position in the top 10% of technologically advanced hospitals in the state.
MGH has been a MEDITECH EHR client since 2003, and in 2008 the organization realized they needed to expand their number of interfaces to connect to other vendors’ systems. Initially they added individual interfaces through the EHR system, but it was a costly process so MGH decided to go to market to find an interoperability solution that
- could work with MEDITECH, and
- was easy-to-use, scalable, and cost-effective.
