MEDITECH Expands Collaborative Environments for Health IT Development

Health IT developers will have access to a collaborative environment that supports SMART on FHIR apps as part of the MEDITECH Greenfield Workspace.

MEDITECH has announced the expansion of Greenfield, an initiative that connects communities of partners and app developers to advance health IT development.

The vendor now provides two collaborative environments: Greenfield Alliance and Greenfield Workspace.

Greenfield Alliance is a new partner engagement initiative for organizations with proven products that complement, optimize, or extend the Expanse EHR.

The initiative aims to allow for greater transparency for organizations interacting with MEDITECH. Additionally, the program is set to simplify the discovery and purchasing process for customers who want to broaden the functionality of their current Expanse EHR platform.

“Teaming with our partners in the Greenfield Alliance, we will be able to leverage our collective knowledge to get the best results from the Expanse EHR,” Jeffrey Kimball, MEDITECH associate vice president, said in a public statement. “Our customers will benefit from having a clear understanding of available complementary solutions, as well as the highest level of support from us going forward.”

Additionally, app developers can apply to Greenfield Workspace, an established development ecosystem that enables the API community to test and enhance solutions within a real MEDITECH EHR.

Members of the Greenfield Workspace will have access to an environment that supports SMART on FHIR apps, including UI testing capabilities and various APIs beyond US Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI).

Officials said that Greenfield will assure MEDITECH clients that the app is vetted and will adhere to an agreed-upon implementation guide or deployment.

“We’re getting a glimpse into the future of healthcare IT with Greenfield Workspace,” noted Mike Cordeiro, MEDITECH senior director of interoperability and product strategy. “It’s very exciting to be fostering the growth of impassioned organizations and individuals who are helping us to drive healthcare innovation forward as we all meet new challenges.”
