Some amazing similarities between Epic and Meditech: 1. Both only sell software; get your hardware elsewhere, e.g.:  Meditech from JJ Wild/Perot.

Some amazing similarities between Epic and Meditech:

1. Both only sell software; get your hardware elsewhere, e.g.: Â Meditech from JJ Wild/Perot. 2. Both hire rookie implementers out of local colleges for their client hospitals to train... 3. Both are programmed in Mumps, and trying every few years/releases to put lipstick on that pig... 4. Neither have local offices; they'd rather you pay to fly them across the country on your nickel. 5. Both are totally top-down organizations, with all decisions coming out of corporate, not the field. 6. Both started out with clinical apps (Meditech = ancillaries, Epic = Ambulatory EMRs), then backed into financials. Could Judy Faulkner have worked at a Meditech site years ago and copied them when building her cult/company?
