For the last five years, it’s been full speed ahead for the IT team at Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital. Under the leadership of Cindy Peterson, that “full speed” has included implementing dozens of applications from the organization’s core clinical vendor — Meditech — along with many of the ancillary technologies that give CPOE a solid chance of success. And while Peterson says Henry Mayo should qualify for Stage 1 before the window closes, making the grade is not without its stresses, especially since Meditech resources are becoming ever scarcer. To learn more about her organization’s journey, healthsystemCIO.com editor Anthony Guerra recently caught up with the California-based executive.

- “Epic does have an excellent model for implementation, I wouldn’t say Meditech has an excellent model for implementation”
