WOLF & CO Case Studies Responsive Revenue Recognition for $500M EHR Healthtech Organization, MEDITECH

Responsive Revenue Recognition for $500M EHR Healthtech Organization, MEDITECH



Revenue recognition is inherently complicated for healthtech companies, and can even become burdensome and daunting. Additionally, working with an accounting firm that maintains a national office responsible for reviewing policies and providing terse feedback can add even more stress to the process.

Challenge

MEDITECH—a global healthcare solutions software company that develops and deploys Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems aimed at empowering healthcare organizations—was experiencing a lack of collaboration and prioritization while working with a large, international accounting firm to affirm their revenue recognition policies. This led to:

  • Delayed financial reporting
  • Unreasonable timelines
  • Additional costs
  • Additional hours spent by key executives on accounting research
  • Unnecessary stress and overtime
