The company was a primary contributor to the MUMPS programming language. In 1970, MIIS (Meditech Interpretive Information System) evolved from an early version of the MUMPS programming language. MIIS is no longer actively used by the company.
A successor named MAGIC (not to be confused with a different PC database product of the same name) is currently used by MEDITECH and its partner companies. The language is not marketed to outside application developers. While maintaining their proprietary business characteristic, MEDITECH has now moved to more sophisticated programming languages and more aesthetically-pleasing software producing across-the-board solutions for the health care industry. The company domestically develops, implements and services software products usually packaged into functional components.
In April 2007, MEDITECH announced it will be acquiring its long-time partner Patient Care Technologies. Upon completion of the acquisition, PtCT will become an independent subsidiary.
