WESTWOOD, MA, AND WHITE PLAINS, NY - 05 Oct 2001: Medical Information Technology Inc., (MEDITECH) announced today a collaboration with IBM to provide MEDITECH customers with IBM's line of high-performance eServers and storage systems that are fully compatible with MEDITECH software. Certified IBM computing systems can operate with MEDITECH's Microsoft(R) Windows(R)-based Client/Server Release as well as the company's MAGIC Release.

"IBM and MEDITECH are at the top of their respective fields and represent two of the most trusted names in healthcare technology.
