Quick google of "Meditech platforms" results in:

"In addition to its primary market of acute care hospitals, MEDITECH also
serves home healthcare agencies, large healthcare systems, physician
offices, and clinics. MEDITECH's HCIS is available on two platforms: a
client/server-based Microsoft Windows setup, or the company's proprietary
MAGIC operating system."
