MEDITECH Materials Management

Published: 02 March 2001

Analyst(s): Barbara A. Kelly


MEDITECH's Materials Management is a traditional MMIS that can be installed as a stand-alone product or implemented with other MEDITECH Health Care Information System (HCIS) applications as part of an enterprise-wide HIS. As care delivery organizations embrace e-commerce, they are replacing MMISs with supply chain management (SCM) systems that connect them to suppliers and distributors over the Web. For now, MEDITECH's Materials Management retains a loyal customer base among small to medium-size CDOs that have deployed MEDITECH HCIS.
