Welcome to the CommunityOne online information center!

CommunityONE is a two-year collaboration between Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Needham, Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Milton and Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth to develop a new, shared  electronic medical record (EMR) called Meditech Expanse (formerly Meditech 6.1) which will “go live” October 1.

Implementing the Expanse EMR is a huge project involving  hundreds of staff from the three community hospitals, MEDITECH, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and consultants. Our sincere appreciation and gratitude goes out to all who have taken part in this community hospitals-wide and exciting project.

The new Expanse EMR will provide the three community hospitals with a state-of-the-art, shared electronic medical record. This will enable easier sharing of patient information between the hospitals thereby improving efficiency, quality of care and patient satisfaction while reducing unnecessary tests and lowering costs. It will also improve patient safety and workflow efficiency through enabling the transition from paper to electronic processes. For physicians, it will create a streamlined collection of evidence-based order sets, enabling shared best practices and standardizing care.

Mission Statement

To develop, implement and manage single, patient focused BIDMC Community Hospital EHR using principles of best practice to support clinical excellence, fiscal accountability and a productive experience for all.
