  • Visibility into metrics, collected through MEDITECH, about the MEDITECH Applications, Databases, Queues, Background jobs, and machines.
  • Dashboards to help you visualize and analyze performance indicators from specific departmental metrics (admissions, order entry, etc.) and related infrastructure (physical and virtual). This transparency increases collaboration across infrastructure, operations, and applications teams.
